 My understanding of movcpm.com is that it needs to be the
exact one that comes with that version. I beleive it has
tables of addresses to replace.
 If you have ROMs, it is unlikely that it is a 64K CPM. One
would need to allow some space for the ROMs. It may already
be a 62K.
 You might try moving to something you know is safe like

It's the early model with an 81-110B1 motherboard that needs the wiring for the floppy side 2 added. The Advent Turborom manual has the wiring mods needed for side 2 access. The Kaypro II comes with a 2K eprom and the Kayplus83 is an 8K. Again the Turborom manual tells how to access a 4K rom and adding access to the A12 line should make the 8K rom work. I think that I've got that part all worked out. To make the Kayplus boot disk, you have to have a system size of 62K or smaller. My Kaypro II disk has a 64K system. When I run movcpm.com to change the system size, the program hangs. I also tried the version of movcpm that comes with the Kaypro 4 and that hangs also. So question (1) is, has anyone gotten this program to work or is there another easy way to do this? There's a blurb on the net about the Kaypro 1 movcpm not working right but I didn't see anything about the Kaypro II version. Question (2) is, should the movcpm program from another Kaypro model work on a II or are they all specific to 1 model. TIA.> > Ralph
