I already have aurdino cables around (cables with male/female dupont connectors) but the real reason is "Getting the proper pin headers is more elegant", of course 🤣
Haha, I see. I do understand that, I prefered the proper way, too, when I flashed mine! 😀
Besides, some of them also required permanently for some simple hardware mods, not just jumpering it for programming and connecting the TTL adapter.
Makes sense. I did the speaker mod right away from the start. I choosed a medum sized piezo speaker, added a cable with pins, and did set the volume to 19 in FF.cfg.
For mounting, I choosed the double sided tape. It worked nicely, since the speaker still had its black plastic casing
(the shop didn't sell other models. The guy on the cash register recommended me to crack it up if I needed the speaker only).
I did this mod the other day my bios won't boot from my any of my floppy images, but in can view them in windows.
Am i missing files that should be on the main of my fat32 formatted flash drive?
Not that I know of. 😐 You need FF.CFG, IMAGE_A.CFG and some image files (*.ima).
Maybe it helps changing some of the default settings. Or making it bootable from the machine itself the Gotek is installed in.
I attached the files that seem to work on my PC/XT clone right now.
Edit: Tip: You can test your image of bootability in emulators or virtual machines.
Such as PCem, Virtual PC, DOSBox (BOOT image.ima). Always works for me.
Except for some odd OSes like DOS Plus. For some "!%&§$" reasons (please excuse the heavy speech) it refuses to boot on my vintage PC.
Even though it boots in generic PC emulators. Maybe it's because I use a boot diskette for my Gotek, not sure.
(The A: drive is a 360K drive. I'm ussing a special diskette that boots from B: drive, which is a Gotek. Works fine for PC-DOS.)
