IDE Autoboot patch for TOS 1.04 Copyright (c) 2020, Christian Zietz


Find a ROM image of TOS 1.04. In idepatch.fil enter its file name, select the TOS language and modify the output format, if needed.

Then, run... TOSPATCH.TTP idepatch.fil ... and you get a patched TOS ROM image.


The code uses a short timeout for IDE devices, in order not to delay booting too much when no IDE device is connected. The timeout is more than sufficient for modern devices such as IDE/SD adapters, CF cards, IDE DOMs, etc. Booting from a mechanical harddisk, that takes tens of seconds to spin up, might only be possible after pressing the reset button.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
