Apple IIGS - GS/OS all - Slots Control panel, slot selection

Postby lmmtux » Mon Mar 10, 2014 9:14 pm

The Apple IIGS slot assignments can be modified in the Slots control panel.

To access the slot settings in GS/OS, go to the Apple menu, then Control Panel, then Slots. If you prefer you can also access the slots settings by pressing Apple-Control-ESC and entering in to the text Control Panel. This can be done before booting in to GS/OS.

The table below lists the available slots.

Slot# Item Description
----- ---- -----------
Slot 1: Printer Super Serial card/other printer card
Slot 2: Modem Super Serial card/Internal modem card
Slot 3: Video/Extended memory RAM upgrades, 80 column card. (reserved)
Slot 4: Mouse Mouse controller card
Slot 5: Hard drive SCSI card/Profile controller card
Slot 6: 5.25" drives DISK II or other drive controller
Slot 7: 5.25" or 3.5" disk drive DISK II or other drive controller

Important Notes:

  • The IIGS will boot from the highest numbered slot that has a bootable device attached to it.
  • If a hard drive with more than 2 partitions is attached, the drive will show the 3rd and 4th partition as: slot 2, drive 1 and slot 2, drive 2. They will show up this way regardless of what is actually connected to slot 2.
