I have a friend who has an Apple II+ with a slight modification that allows them to boot from either the first or second slot. (Slot 0 or slot 1)
Their goal is to be able to have a 16K language card in Slot 0 and a ROM card in Slot 1 - and be able to boot off of either.
While this appears to be working, they do not get an autoboot to Basic unless they have a floppy loaded.
I would have thought it would autoboot to the Basic prompt, but that isn't happening.
Was this a common modification? And would anyone have any idea why it doesn't autoboot to Basic?
I don't have ready access to this computer, so if we need photos I'll have to reach out to the owner and ask them to send me some.
