Just an update on my Lisa 2, i.e. the first machine I posted about. This is
the one I thought had the drive issue, but in fact simply needed a DD disk
in the slot rather than my HD one.
Anyway, today I managed to make two Macwork disks from Lisa images on the
web. My web machine is a PC so it involved using software called Transmac
and a Mac Classic 2 with a 800k drive attached which I could use to write
the 400K images.
Anyway, the good news is the Lisa booted just fine! However, the bad news
is (as I suspected) all THREE of my Lisa keyboards are non-functional.
Well, not quite. One has the '4' key working on the keypad, the other has
the '/' key working. But that's it.
I know there is a bit of info on the Web as to how these might be repaired
so it's off to have a look!....
After Xmas, I'll tackle to Lisa 2/10 again.
