Hello.
I plan to use a Floppy Drive Emulator with my A1000.
Where can I buy the ADF files needed to boot my machine?
The drive in question is a Pi version.

Looks like you could buy them from here:
https://www.amigaforever.com/shop

Floppy & Hard Disk Image Pack

Doesn't say too much about it.

Thanks, I think the Kickstart 1.3 is encrypted.
The WB1.3 probably is not.

Yeah, not sure. Makes sense that they would be matched to work with AF. Could be an idea to shoot an email across since they really don't provide enough information.

I did get 1.2 though.

I have been working on my Amiga Pi Drive. edit: This unit came from Taiwan prebuilt.

I finally got it to work.

After getting a couple of Kickstart.adf's, I went over the instructions on the site.

https://amigadrive.blogspot.com/

The file needed to be gzip-ed. Take kicstart12. adf and gzip it and rename the adf.gz to adz.

The drive will automatically pick up the kickstart12.adz.
I have only the 256k expansion and the workbench disk has some kind of error.
The machine does not have a mouse yet.

You can use the keyboard to select files and then use ESC to launch the disk you want.
