  1. Re; Upgrade Objectives and Starting Point: I have been reading the forums and watching youtube videos trying to plan how I will install a M.2 SSD (internally) into my VCS. I have a 2TB SATA Stick and hope to achieve 4 things: 1) expand the internal Storage available to the Stock Atari OS (to stock+500GB), 2) add a PC-Mode Boot manager to select which partition to boot to, 3) create a Windows 10 partition (1TB) , and 4) create a partition for future use (500GB) to add another OS (hopefully Batocera) at a later date. I have other goals that are not listed because they are not interdependent with the above 4. (Like freeing up external USB ports and moving my keyboard/mouse off of 2.4GHz.) The challenges that may not yet be resolved are: a) I think that I need to create a recovery image of the Atari OS partition before I do anything... (I likely need a separate computer that I may not currently have in order to do this), b) there may be no way to get an alternate OS onto the internal M.2 once it is installed - it may need to be done before installing the stick into the VCS, c) there may be no way to format the M.2 stick as an extension of the Atari OS storage without installing it into the VCS, d) there may be no way for the Atari OS to partition only part of the M.2 Stick to be part of the Atari OS, e) once the M.2 Stick has been partitioned to add storage to the Atari OS, re-sizing the partition may mess up the Atari's access to it, f) PC Mode may not be able to point to rEFInd unless it's on an external USB drive (would be unfortunate but tolerable). What I have to work with so far: i) an up-to-date Ubuntu box (that I know next-to-nothing about) that I could use if I need to. ii) another Ryzen box with Batocera installed and a selection of live-boot USB thumb-drives (Windows10, Lubunu, Ubuntu Mate) iii) a M.2 -to- USB 3.1 External SSD drive adapter, iv) the previously mentioned 2TB M.2 SSD (WD Blue 3D NAND 2TB Internal PC SSD - SATA III, M.2 - WDS200T2B0B) - not yet formatted, and v) a spare 1TB external USB 3.1 drive. vi) 2x16GB memory cards (HyperX Impact 2933MHz DDR4 CL17 SODIMM HX429S17IB2K2/32, 32GB kit) My tech background is in electronics design and some microcontroller programming, not with OS's, bootloaders, & drivers and such. The folks in other threads seem to understand this stuff much better than me and may likely advise me to not attempt this at all as a self admitted novice. My approach will be to simply go very slowly and research thoroughly before every step. This is the very reason I bought my VCS - to make it my living room TV computer. Worst case scenario is I have to give up on AtariOS, throw out the motherboard and jam a different motherboard in there - but I doubt it will come to that. Re; Backing up and restoring AtariOS: (a) In a thread called 'Hardware Upgrades, Experiences and Tips', started by justclaws several months and VCS updates ago, he points to a video by RetroAxis on backing up and restoring the AtariOS using a separate OpenSuSe linux box. It will take me some time to decypher all of the terms to map out how to do that, but I think it will be doable with my other Ryzen box and an Ubuntu Live-boot USB thumb drive and backing up to my spare 1TB external USB drive. I don't think I need to use OpenSuSe specifically... unless it has standard tools that Ubuntu is missing? Does anyone know if it will save me headaches to start by making an OpenSuse live-boot USB drive first? Re; Partitioning & Formatting the M.2 Drive: (b, c, d, & e) From reading the discussions between Charles Darwin, 0_obeWAN, & others in the 'Multi Boot Loader for USB/eMMC' thread who seem to know what the heck they are doing, it looks like there is a good multi-boot Bootloader called rEFInd that might work. I have not yet What I know so far: A) the BIOS requires UEFI Boot, and since others have succeeded with it, rEFInd Bootloader must support this (... I think? I don't know what these words really mean.), B) the current BIOS password is 'Atar!C3l3br8te$50Y34r$'. C) My rough-draft order-of-operations assumption is that I'll need to : Does this seem rational? 1st - Install & Format the AtariOS expanded (EXT3 ?) storage partition, 2nd - Remove the M.2 SSD and put it into the USB 3.1 external Drive adapter, 3rd - (If neccessary) re-size the partition to make room for other OSs, 4th - Format a Partition for the UEFI Multi-boot Bootloader, rEFInd, 5th - Format 2 NTFS partitions for Windows 10 Boot and operations, 6th - Format 2 XFS partitions for future OS Boot and operations, 7th - Install Windows to the NTFS Partitions 8th - Somehow "Compose" the rEFInd bootloader for the OSs selected and install it into the Bootloader Partition, 9th - Re-install the M.2 SSD into the internal bay of the VCS. 10th - ? Although I've found lots of references to physically installing the M.2 SSD card, I have not yet found any info on how to format the M.2 internal SSD so that the AtariOS can see it for games storage. Can anyone advise me: - if there is a utility in the AtariOS that recognizes new SSD and offers to format? - if so, will it allow you to format only part of the SSD? and - if not, is it an ext3 file system? & will the AtariOS see it if I format it correctly? Is there a known-good piece of software in a specific OS that will work for all this Formatting and Partitioning work? (is it user-friendly?) Re; Your feedback: I think this summarizes my plan as it stands to date - I don't want to go too far based on false assumptions or mis-information. Can anyone offer any feedback before I get too far along a faulty plan? ANY ADVISE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!
  2. I saw these on ebay only once and got them, I've yet to see any more. I'd like to have a couple more for future expansion so if anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.
  3. SOLD! $35 Shipped 1 Fellows and 1 Memorex 3.5" disk file box. Both boxes still have their plastic dividers and are if good but used condition. Includes 60+ used discs in various conditions but all were readable when I checked their contents. Some have been erased. Some only had data written to them once and some were used multiple times. Bonus: I've included about 30 brand new disk labels as well.
  4. I'm not sure if this thread will catch on, but I wanted to share a few recent discoveries having to do with storage and thought that others might like to do the same. In the past, I've posted a lot about having limited shelf space. Also, I just don't like the way that row upon row of game boxes look on a shelf (I'm sure I'm in the minority here). So, most of my game boxes needed to be out of sight but readily accessible. I found these clear storage cases at the craft store Michaels, and they are perfect for certain types of game boxes. They fit PS1 cases three across, PS2 cases two across, and the plastic 2600/CV game protector boxes two across. (I posted about these great protector boxes in another thread; they are the perfect companion to these cases). The cases are the perfect height as well so that there isn't any movement once the lid is closed. They are hard plastic and stackable. The best part is that you can see which game is in which case.
  5. Hi. Can you clue me in on how to swap in/out 16k of ROM from the $C100 space using IntyBASIC compiling to the JLP architecture? I am using the $C100 section of ROM to hold an audio waveform sample, the rest of the game cartridge ROM I am using for game code and graphics and sounds (42k, its large). Once the waveform plays, I want to play a different one at a later point in the game, so a swap of some kind through IntyBASIC's JLP support I think would be the best move because playing would be transparent to the rest of the game code. Speed is not critical for the swap, just something that works. All ideas appreciated, if I'm way off in my suppositions I'll try other avenues. Thanks. (Based on the question I asked in http://atariage.com/forums/topic/253812-intybasic-how-do-i-upload-graphic-data-from-ram-to-gram/?p=3535223)
  6. From the album: TI stuff

    My TI-99/4a, just coming out of storage
  7. I am writing as an ancient original TI user, not adept with hardware and very fond of the original TI concept of plug n play. Not keen on changing the original hardware. My original iron works, I have a sidecar 32k, and FG99. My ancient TI floppy drives are now temperamental and unreliable (the original disks even more so). I can write TI programs with emulators, but I am not able now to reliably write programs and save them or use programs that need disk storage on the original hardware. I have kept up as best I can with the TIPI project and deduced this is absolutely not for me - I don't have a Windows machine, and its setup and use has been written up to be horrendously difficult. The MBX works (which is an external CPU), it just plugs in and works, no problems. So- still looking for something to plug into the sideport that I can store files on. The CF7 seems to use a memory card that is very expensive or hard to source here- I'd like something that used an SDHC card not unlike the FG99. And was easy to use, plug in, put in SDHC card, save file (well, maybe use a disk formatter - perhaps on-board? or something). Oh yes- my 32k sidecar is not extendable, so any new device sidecar would need a connecter for the 32k to plug into! or have its own 32k replacement on board. Just a wish list! Stephen
  8. So I was reading an article about there being a possibility of a solar flare hitting Earth within the next 100 years and frying our technology, and it got me wondering if there are any collectors out there who store anything in emp proof containers? So has anyone prepared for this? If society manages to make it through such an event cartridge games that survived would be incredibly rare.
  9. I have some rudimentary programs I wrote (hey, I was 9 at the time ) as well as some other books on TI Basic and would like to start dabbling again. I haven't picked up a program recorder yet, nor have I made the investment in a PEB (yet!). Should I look to just start out with a program recorder? Since I've seen different hardware development over time, perhaps that's just "old fashioned" and there's a better way. (e.g. storage peripheral that uses SD cards?) I didn't see any though, just the units for the PEB I think. Any advice is appreciated, thanks.
  10. Truths: the FinalGROM has a massive amount of storage space. the TIPI also has a massive amount of storage space. So the question is, on which device you store most of your games? While the poll is anonymous, please feel free to tell us WHY you have one preference over another.
