Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

Addendum: There already is some clock reset code in the CT60 bios: Holding ALT+Control on boot seems to reset the Clock speed. (untested)

Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

Wouldn't help - as when the CTCM malfunctions the 060 wouldn't work at all - so nothing could react to any keypresses :/
Maybe it is somehow possible to program the CTCM from 030 mode - i doubt that but i'll try to find sth.

Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

"Can be a bug, check it, minimum value should be 66,6Mhz, not 66Mhz"

Depends. Do you use a supervidel?
My supervidel-less CT60 runs at 50Mhz f.e.

Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

It is made for CTPCI-less CT60,CT63 and CT60e.
Use the A version if you don't have any SuperVidel installed; use B or C if you have.
If you make a mistake you can always flash from 030 mode.

Re: New Boot "Manager" insaneBOOT

I have something planned regarding this. A kind of flag system - I already have the reset-proof (I hope; gotta check with emutos) remember-last-selection byte. I am planning to use something similar to allow "continuing" booting a certain selection. But this'll still need some time. I'll k...

And a big thank you to Patrice Mandin for coding the first versions of the CT60 Setup program and redistributing his sources!

Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

There are no plans for real PCI support as those need the PCI bios routines from Boot 2. From which there aren't any sources available. (There are some sources in the 1.04 alpha - but I have no Idea how stable they are) I also have no personal interest in PCI stuff so someone else will need to take ...

Re: Replacing CT60 boot logo with Didier's tools

Remember that the picture inside pic_boot is stored as a 65k 320x240 XIMG-file; not a targa file.
You can also simply patch the ct60tos.bin - search for BEG_XIMG and place your XIMG after that.
There's also a END_XIMG tag but this isn't used.

Re: New CT60 Boot ROM 1.05

Nothing significant.
- 20190312: Added new Boot-Picture/Demo ID "DEMO"
- if used (instead of XIMG) the 2s wait after the Demo is skipped
Only useful if you code your own intro picture - that's why I haven't posted an update yet.

@joska: where those 0xffffffff before the flashing (using abesdr.tos according to the readme.txt)? Those only show you which Version of the ABE/SDR you have flashed onto the CPLD/FPGA. If you know for sure that you have rev5 or rev7 (AFAIK all CT60e have Rev7) then you can use abesdr.tos to set thos...

Hi Kroll!
Only CTPCI Ide is supported on this Boot 1 codebase.
If you are using PCI devices then you'll need to stay on Boot 2

Note that you can always run MinT tools like cp and mv with parameters (look at the autoexec.cfg for an example) to copy .acc, .inf or .cpx files :)
