1040STF with new TOS questions.

Postby ATARI-ALIVE » Sat Aug 01, 2009 3:03 am

I have two 1040STF and 1040STFM.

I am sure they have old version TOS.

DOES Verison 2.06 working for 1040?

WHERE can I get 2.06 files and I can burn in the EPROMs???

Does it need change pins for bigger sizes for 1MB EPROMs?

Let me know soon! I need upgrade 2.06 due hard drive compatibles.

THANKS!
THANK YOU

personaly i prefer supertos to the standard 2.06

yes you can 'modify' st level machines to accept tos 2.06
there is instructions in the guides section

best to stay at tos 1.04 with older machines or you could face compatability problems with some older games and tools
or use some 512k or 1mb eproms and a switch and have 2 or more versions to switch between
i feel is the best way

It worked with my 520STFM, so should work with 1040STF & 1040STFM.
IIRC, mine did not have a "real" adapter but it was a bunch of wires I had to solder to the bus.
It had tos 2.06 & tos 1.02 switchable.

THANKS! :D


I do not mind to upgrade 2.06 on 1040STFM because I can have one 1040 STF with original version and one 1040 STFM with TOS 2.06 so I can do alternate two computers. 8)

I am expert electronics to built. I have lot electronics stuffs and tools.

AGAIN: where can I get TOS 2.06?? I have hard to find.

Do you have any schematic or explain how to built?




I am working to built SCSI Interface for Atari ST.

You can get tos2.06 from ebay as I have seen one floating around there.
But of course since you are here at the forums just PM simbo, the resident hw guru :D , as you can see from his topic, he's doing it for us.

Since you're an electronics expert, and working on a SCSI board, why not try an IDE board like discussed here which also allows you to addon Tos 2.06.
So you solve 2 problems at once - tos 2.06 plus a HDD !! :lol:

Hi Atari-Live
I'm very interested to your "SCSI interface for Atari ST"
In facts, I hate to modify the motherboards, so i think that your project is very interesting.
Let me know if that works fine.

That's will be NICE!! :D
I am in USA. can do Paypal?
I have 6 ROMs on my 1040STF,
Do you mean the TOS 1.02 and 2.06 in one EPROMs switchable?

£1 = $1.85

That's mean $3.69 per IC x 6 = $22.14 + $4.61 = $26.75 correct?

Thanks save my time to built EPROM burner unit. I do not have one now.

Not know if it is worthy I get this:
