Quantum Fireball - problem with booting

Postby Kroll » Thu Jul 26, 2018 8:31 pm

Hi,
My friend, who is a musician and he wants to use Atari TT, he has a problem with booting with SCSI disk. He sent me this drive to test on my hardware.
This drive is Quantum Fireball ST21S011 (2.1GB SCSI drive, model ST 2.1S).

Today I tried to install HDDriver on two different TT and on Falcon030. No success.After installing HDDriver on disk, computer no booting from this disk. I read in a very old thread, that there was a similar problem, BUS arbitration is on, delay, but there is a still the same effect. termination on disk and etc.

Has anyone finally managed to solve this problem or does this series of Qunatum fireballs refuse to cooperate with Atari computers?

Does the Quantum Fireball require the SCSI initiator ID to be present on the bus? If so, TOS cannot boot from this HD. TosPatch (https://www.markusheiden.de/atari/tospatch.html) has a patch for that. It says that this patch is needed for some Quantum HDs.

Thanks a lot, I have downloaded, but everything is in german.
Could someone help me, or possibly send me already patched version TOS. I will split it into 4 parts and I will copy it to EPROM)
There may also be some instructions, I have in my TT TOS 3.06 German.

TOSPATCH is for german TOS 3.06 only ...

TOS306.GER.zip


Ask "pakman" over the forum to patch US or UK TOS 3.06 for you.

@frank.lukas: thank you very much for your help.
Today we changed TOS and now the Quantum Fireball disk is booting up without any problems. I talked to a friend who will use this disk, and the German version will be enough for him.
I use another disk in my TT and I do not like this problem.
Thank you very much for solving this problem.
