Located in Vero Beach Florida.
I was able to boot an old toshiba utility disk i had laying around
that is 720K. I have tried to make a couple of dos boot disks but have
not had any luck getting it booted. it appears to be functional, but i
need to get a proper boot disk made before i send it off. Pictures to
follow soon. I am taking the machine apart to take inventory and find
out the model numbers on the drives.

Subject: Picked up tandy 1000 TX
I picked up a tandy 1000 TX with a color CM 11 monitor. Both are in the original boxes
with keyboard,monitor and the printer cable. It powers on but i can not seem to get it to
boot from the floppy drive.
Ive tried writing 720K boot disks from my windows computer but it is still not booting.
Some better pictures to follow soon.
I do not particularly need such a machine, and am open to trade or offers. If no one
wants it perhaps it can be put to use as a BBS or something packet radio related over
here. Also, the boxes both had us goverment stickers on them, kinda intersting.
