    Installing Lisa Tools

    That worked! Although it worked better if I did one file at a time. Thank you!

    Installing Lisa Tools

    I successfully installed the Lisa 3.1 OS from the Floppy Emu Lisa onto my Lisa 2/10, but have been unable to install the Lisa 7/7 Tools (LisaWrite, LisaDraw, etc). Were they supposed to be installed during the LOS install? If so, I have not located them on the hard drive (9k free "blocks", 13.5k...

    Formatting the Lisa 10MB Widget

    Fixed! It was a bad sd card in the Floppy Emu. I got a replacement from BMOW and was able to use the first Office System image to get the hard disk initialized (in two parts) and LOS all loaded up and running.

    Formatting the Lisa 10MB Widget

    Found from a previous post from you: "To install the Office System, you will need to boot from the first Office System disk and follow the instructions on the screen." After I get the hard drive mounted on the desktop?

    Formatting the Lisa 10MB Widget

    Thanks again for your insights stepelton much appreciated. After much effort I did manage to get BLU onto the Floppy Emu and run it on the Lisa. I did the E - Exercise/Test Disk for several minutes with no errors reported. I then did a L - Low Level Format successfully. Now how do I get the...

    Formatting the Lisa 10MB Widget

    After getting my Lisa 2/10 up and running, I was able to boot from the Widget into MacWorks XL. But it has started to hang during the boot process. The HD activity light would flash rapidly then go steady. Hitting the interrupt button would get it going again, including a momentary pfs:file &...

    Floppy EMU on Lisa

    Now tryinng to move the Lisa office files on the Floppy Emu to the hard drive. Should I attempt to switch to Lisa office or leave well enough alone? It has the H/88 ROM.

    Floppy EMU on Lisa

    After reseating the cards and some of the chips on the Widget, and tweaking the pots on the Widget's motherboard, it now boots up to MacWorks 😀 I can also erase/write/read the floppy drive. I think the real trick was cleaning the Lisa's cover panels. This old girl still likes to look good!

    Floppy EMU on Lisa

    Fixed!!! The problem was that I configured the EMU for Mac disks rather then Lisa Disks. Since I could select disks in the Lisa menu, I thought they were Lisa disks. So I reconfigured it for the Lisa disks, but still didn't get it to boot until I selected one of the MacWorks disks. Aspect ratio...

    Floppy EMU on Lisa

    There has been no numerical code after startup. When it jumps to the I/O icon, it immediately says no keyboard and pauses for a bit. Does it usually test the I/O board quickly? I am getting a keyboard adaptor soon and maybe that will change things. Yes, I moved the head actuator shaft while it...

    Floppy EMU on Lisa

    Thanks for replies. After turning on the Lisa it steps thru the test icons and when it gets to i/o it beeps 3 high notes and has the crossed out icon. It will eventually give me the option to boot from the hd or floppy. I figured out how to hook up the Emu. It has the Dec '23 firmware update. I...
