PUBLIC BETA, NOW AVAIBLE!

Well.

Today I decided to release this site.

DiagROM Are now a public beta.

 

Feel free to use the downloadlink on the top right corner on this screen or : http://www.diagrom.com/index.php/download/

Burn into a prom and test. it IS recomended that you have a eprom-eraser as this software is in a very extreme beta-state yet. and will be changed a LOT!

The basic idea is that this software should start on many machines with different issues. This idea means a lot of problems. I cannot rely on ANYTHING!.  menaing no timers, no IRQ, no nothing.

Remember that I have NO possability whatsoever to give support on repairs etc. I actually DO repair machines etc depending on time. such questions can be mailed to:   repairs<at>diagrom.com  .

 

But I am glad to get any input, ideas, suggestions, bugreports etc.

 

This is NOT for the novice.  you need to have a Eprom-programmer that can program 27C400 proms, and you need a eraser.

 

Anyway, hope you will find this software useful and I will code on!

 

This sites design etc can be changed at any time.

What is DiagROM?

DiagROM is a diagnostic tool for the amiga computers.

And it is to be used on defective machines, trying to help no-boot situations etc.

You simply replace the Kickstart roms in the Amiga with the DiagROM. and when poweron. your Amiga will start a diagnostic software. It will try to dump info on the serialport (and actual menus etc aswell) while also trying on the screen.

One important thing is that the software relies on as little hardware as possible. so no timers, no IRQ etc. so you can start up the machine on a very broke machine and from that test different things. and hopefully help finding hardwareissues.

The software will be FREE download with an option to donate money but the important thing: IT WILL BE FREE.

And at a later point, the source will be open aswell. but not right now.

You will be able to buy programmed roms for a small fee if you do not have a EPROM Programmer.
