Have a pet project I go back to every few months - rebuild of an early Apple II. To date, PSU caps fixed, keyboard encoder chip issue fixed, and all good now, as far as starting up with no disk.
I have a couple of Disk IIs,but I don't know if they are any good. So, any suggestions on how to proceed? I could order a DOS 3.3 master from ebay, I guess, but I am pretty sure most of them would be worthless. I have a super serial card, so I believe if I had a known working disk II drive, I could burn my own.
So, I'm kind of in a chicken and egg situation. Has anyone else been through this, and if so, how did you proceed?
