strange TF530/534 & kickstart 3.1 rom behaviour

Post by roy-forest-fc.goodall »

without a TF53x installed the kickstart shows insert disk screen and floppy drive clicks
with a TF530/534 installed all there I get is a black screen and no floppy click
but if an IDE device (cf card) is attached it will still show a black screen but will then load from the CF Card
holding both mouse buttons takes me into boot sequence/board etc screen and I can boot from df0 If I select it from there

It takes 20-30 seconds for the IDE device to time out.

nothing wrong all is perfectly working - it should be just like You described.
If You want to boot from floppy - go in early boot menu and choose to boot from DF0/DF1 or remove CF card ;)

Meant to say that the Boobip trapdoor ram works perfectly with a tf534
