C128 BOOT Bug?

Date: 2002-12-04 03:42:17

Hi All,

I was doing some experimenting with a loader which installs in the $0b00
area on the C128 and should auto-execute if loaded with the BOOT"file",U11

Indeed all works perfectly on the C128D and C128DCR machines that I have
tested, but on two flat C128's the code will not execute, instead a break
occurs and the monitor is entered. The code loads and looks fine.

In fact, LOAD"file",11,1 followed by a SYS11*256 works perfectly.

So, is this a know bug of the early C128 ROM (along with the CAPs-Q, etc) or
am I doing some thing wrong?

Any suggestions appreciated. The only thought I had was that the code needs
to be in the Track1 Sector0 format to BOOT on all machines.
