Startup without a diskette looks like here because of no TOS.

The Youtube video was the best to see the differences.

How do you know this is _the one_ without TOS? :wink:
Or did all "Pluses" have no ROM TOS :?: :?: :?:

AFAIK all 520ST+ should not have boot roms. :mrgreen:

In the US, the very early 520ST computers shipped with the TOS boot loader ROMs and only 512kb. I have one. They are pretty much useless with less than 512kb (after TOS loads)

Not sure what is stranger, the boot screen or the fact that the guy is wearing gloves in the house. :lol:
