So I just got my first Liron / Apple 3.5" floppy controller card. As soon as i put the card in the system (slot 6 or 7) I was expecting it to behave like a 5.25" floppy drive and attempt a boot from the 3.5" drive. But the Card doesnt even register in the computer the way the 5.25" floppy contoller does. The 5.25" controller at boot will show the Apple ][ at the top of the screen and attempt a boot or stay there. With the Liron card installed the computer always boots to a Basic Prompt. I can type in PR#6 and it will then attempt to boot the disk in the 3.5" drive. If I boot to ADTPro it sees the drive properly and can format and write to it.
I have no experience with these unidisk 3.5" drives or the liron card. I am only used to the dumber variant on the IIGS. Am I missing something or is this the way the drives are supposed to operate?
