Ok, so you were right, I should have been further ahead.

I changed the MFP with a new one, no difference.

Changed the BAD-DMA for an IMP one and then this happened.

The dma I used before came from my Mega, so I know it works, just doesn't like the STF then.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Sweet! So Icky should be at that point when he does the RW mod..

Don't know why the DMA would stop it booting though..

Can you move the mouse ?

Nope, sorry won't move on mine.

Incidentally, it won't boot with the keyboard connected unless the earth on pin 8 is connected.

Does the pointer move if you use the keyboard shortcuts instead of the mouse?

Congrats on getting the first stable desktop picture.

I have a feeling we are going to tracking the peripherals next as my keyboard, mouse and floppy have not responded during any of tests

Hold down the Alt key and use the cursor keys. Alt-Insert is mouse button 1 and Alt-Clr/Home is button 2
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.
