Master-Boot (or similar) for the MZ-80A?

Post by tjewell » Fri May 17, 2019 9:20 pm

On this page - - there's an enormously useful program called 'MASTER-BOOT' that can be used to take any program and put it in the boot sector of an MZ-80K disk. I used it to build a Basic boot disk, and a bootable version of Sucopy.

I'd love something similar for the 80A, but the 80K program doesn't work (I'm not that surprised). Anyone seen a program like this for the 80A?

(I note when it runs it says "masterherstellen" which suggests it's German, if that helps anyone).

Thanks, Tony

Starting to wonder if it's worth disassembling the 80K one and seeing if it can be transcribed to the 80A. Trouble is I don't know the I/O stuff for the 80K.
