FIRST Atari ST TOS 1 boot screen

Post by COTAFAJ »

Not too many people have ever seen the original TOS boot screen. Atari was so anxious to get ours to us we had the opportunity to see this color changing screen upon booting tos from floppy.
I don't think many ST's were shipped like this as our TOS roms were shipped at a later date for us to install.

That's pretty cool actually.

I assumed these old machines would have something much more boring on-screen during boot.
