Is it freezing at Boot in Progress? If so it might be a Z80 issue... have you tried swapping the Main and Scanner Z80A CPUs?

Dear members! Can I ask you to share Emax 1 OS file with me as well?

I have corrupted data on my floppy with OS, so can not boot the sampler...

sounds easy enough.
Is there anything like formatting to do?
I do have the manuals some where... LOL

Any... not being a computer kind of guy... and particularly with the older equipment that is more Mac Based... I just don't know what all to do in prep for... or after installation of the new drive.

Do you know where I can get a matching pair of EPROMs please?

In the meantime, how long does it take before it boots from FDD with a dead HDD in?

Many thanks

If its boot from floppy drive and can load sounds from CD-ROM, it sounds like your HD is dead.
Not a big problem, just buy a scsi2sd v5 drive and replace the HD.

Tried this myself. You can either hook up the disk again (data & power). The installed OS will always look for the HDD if it's dead it will switch to the HxC. The other way is a new set of Eproms with another OS which will initiate the boot from the HxC without looking for a boot record on the HDD.

 So I've seen a number of threads on here about this, but can't find a concise answer. Here's the issue I have;

 I have an EII+ HD that the HDD and FDD are rusted. I've replaced the PSU and the tantalum capacitors (a tant died and killed the PSU).

 I've disconnected the HDD data and power cables from the HDD end
 I've installed the HxC in place of the FDD and put in a cable.

 I've copied the files from the Lothratek website for the EII onto an SDCARD, and selected "emuii_os_3_1HD.hfe"

  The two EPROMs installed are;

  EMU Systems 2.5 (IC42)
  EII+HD Scanner  V3 (IC28)

 When I power up the EII it says "Emulator 2 Now booting" and does nothing, I've waited around 30 minutes and still nothing.

 Both lights on the HxC are lit (SD Access and floppy access) permanently.

  Someone kindly emailed me images for the EII+ 2.1 and EII Main 2.5 roms, which I've tried both in place of IC42 (main CPU ROM).

  I'd really like ot get this beauty working, but I feel I'm missing something.

  Should I replace the scanner ROM (if so could someone email me one please?)
  Should the EII+ HD boot without a HDD in?

  Can someone offer some advice please? I'm totally stumped.

Hi All,
I have a EIIIxp that has some problems.
If it turns out to be too expensive to fix I am considering what to do with the extensive CD Rom library I have.

Are there any other Samplers out there that can read the library and sound any where near as good as the EIIIxp?

Thanks for your help.

I love my EIIIxp rack, but I have not used it for a long while as I am not a Keyboardist, but I keep this for the occasional use.

I tried running it and it wont recognize the internal hard drive any longer.
It may be dead.
It will still boot from the floppy and it reads the extenal CD-ROM.

I am not an electronics guy... so if there is a place I can send it to have it looked over and fixed...updated etc I would love that.

Obviously I am open to shipping it elsewhere but shipping  damage is a little bit of a concern.

Thanks for any help.
