TI Intelligent Terminal 700

Recommended Posts

Seeking others who may have a TI Intelligent Terminal 700 machines, or DS990 machines. I recently acquired a TI 700 and am working on getting it to boot. With help from a friend in Italy, I think I am close, and am awaiting a logic level-shifter so I can flash a Gotek drive to the HxC firmware which supports 8" floppy drives. Anyone else out there with one of these machines?
I hope to get her going and use a terminal program on it, and hopefully some form of BASIC.

990/1 here. Has a 64K RAM board instead of the 2 32Ks your terminal has. You'll need to check for the correct ROM loader on the hi-32K board in order to boot off either a real floppy or an emulated drive like a gotek.  This is covered in the 771 to 990/1 upgrade manual on bitsavers. I believe there is a dump of the boot ROM there as well. If not, kl99 has a copy I believe. Probably your Italian friend, too, if that's who I think. Possible this has already been done on your machine.

 

Slowly getting mine whipped into shape, but I'm swamped with other stuff as well. Maybe some pics soon, though.
