IIGS8MRAM 8MB Memory card for Apple IIGS with ProDos 2.4.1 in ROM

December 22, 2017

Today, I retested the IIGS8MRAM 8MB RAM Card from a2Heaven in Bulgaria. When I tried it last year at this time I could not get it to boot to the hard drive image on the FloppyEMU from http://www.bigmessowires.com web site. It would only boot to the ProDos 2.4.1 unless I had a 3.5 Drive attached to the SmartPort.

Today, I did one change by setting the boot device in the IIGS Control Panel to slot 5, the SmartPort. The hard drive booted fine and the IIGS reported all the memory and the 2.4.1 Drive. I ran AppleWorksGS and GraphicWriter III, updating documents, spell checking, saving, and rebooting.
