Hello Retroids. I've recently acquired a Kaypro 1 computer with no
software. I also have a Kaypro 2 that has most of its software
including CP/M, and so thought that the Kaypro 1 would be able to boot
and run the same software. When I insert a bootable disk in the
Kaypro 1, however, I get the message "No operating system present on
this disk". I first thought it might be a bad floppy drive in the
Kaypro 1, so I transplanted the A drive to the Kaypro 2 and found it
worked just fine. Is it possible that the Kaypro 1 has a specific
version of CP/M? Does anybody have a copy? Alternately, does this
suggest a problem with the disk controller in the Kaypro 1? Thanks
for any help. John Reeve
