Amiga 1200 / 600 Bootselector, consists of 2 interfaces, 1 internal, and 1 external on the Floppy port.
(No soldering required)
Amiga 1200 / 600 Bootselector allows selecting booting from DF0: or DF1:
After i read somewhere about a guy that had to solder all kind of stuff on his A1200 motherboard, i have been brainstorming about another way to get the same result.
I wanted to mimic the Bootselectors that are widely available for the Amiga 500 / 2000 without the need to solder on your precious hardware.
After drawing some schematics i came up with a way to enable that same behaviour on the SMT 8520 versions of the Amiga (600 / 1200)
This Amiga 1200 / 600 Bootselector consists of 2 interfaces
One internally between the internal floppy drive and the floppy cable, and the other one externally, connected to the floppy port on the back of your Amiga.
The only thing you need to do is bring 2 wires from the internal interface to the external interface.
And then your boot selector for the Amiga 1200 / 600 is ready to be used.
Price for the Bootselector (consisting of 2 interfaces) including a 30cm powercable and floppycable is 30,00 euro's

Fantastic product! Excellent solution to the problem, and something which was sorely needed for A600/A1200!
(Note that the interface does not end up in a DB23 female connector, but instead a floppy/power-connector you can plug directly into Goteks, as shown on the pictures)
Also very great service! Our emails began not always arriving to each other (went on for several days), but he still went out of his way to try to reach me in various ways (both before and also even *after* i had paid the money). Not because he strictly speaking had to, but because he wanted to ensure the products would be right for me and fit correctly inside my slightly modified amiga.
Fast shipping. Easy installation, without any soldering. Works great with the external Gotek, connected to the Amiga 600. Great device, thanks!
The A1200 boot selector from gotek.nl is what Amigans have been missing so far... No soldering needed and it works like a charm!!! Off to play Cyberpunks 2 on my vampired A1200 with an external Gotek as DF0: 🙂 Best regards. Ebster/Forum64.
I love it. It just Works. Now i can Boot From My extern Gotek Drive. Fast Sending With good Packaging.
