I am hoping someone can advice me. I have two questions.
I have an ITT2020 which is a 1979 Apple II clone. I am about to attempt to get this one in to fully working order. I have two question which I am hoping you guys may be able to help with.
1) my computer came with a disk drive but no controller card. I have been reading this little line "ITT also supplied a floppy disk drive that was identical to the Apple II disk drive with 13 sectors and DOS 3.2. They never supplied the upgrade to 16 sectors and DOS." here . . http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/31495/ITT-2020-Computer-Apple-II-Clone/.
I am trying to workout if this means I can get a standard Apple II disc controller card or do I need a specific one. Any ideas gratefully received.
Additionally when the machine boots I see gibberish, i get a beep and then a cursor. I can use CTRL + B then RETURN to get to a basic prompt. Is that normal or should it boot to something else?
Any help appriciated.
