Making an EPROM Adapter and Burning Amiga Kickstart ROMs – TL866 MiniPro

Today we are going to bring a Commodore Amiga A600 Back to life. It has a broken Kickstart ROM, but my Minipro TL866 doesn’t support the 27C400 EPROM devices. We’re going to build an adapter, then copy and burn the data to a new EPROM. Finally we’ll test to see if the broken Amiga boots!

Please help support Mark Fixes Stuff at– Even the smallest pledge helps!
