Diagrom?

I just stumbled upon something called a DIAGROM on ebay?

This link was on the listing http://www.diagrom.com/

Just what exactly is this, what would someone do with this? The link above is a little light on information.

If you've gotta ask, then you don't know.

But seriously, it's for diagnosing hardware faults in Amigas. Replace your Kickstart ROM with this and see how far the machine gets.

Probably not worth spending money on if you have to ask what it's for, plus it's available for free at the URL you specified. Naturally EPROM chips + a burner are needed to use the files.

Some of the eBay listings give a portion of the sales to John, which is a good way of supporting him if you're buying them. But yes, as said, it's a very low-level diagnostic tool, mostly only of use if you have a machine that doesn't even get to the Insert Disk Kickstart screen. If you can boot from floppy, something like SysTest is probably a more convenient tool for checking memory and peripherals.

Oh I see, I have seen a intermitantly faulty A1200 that the seller says sometimes it boots and sometimes it doesn't, I don't think it has been recapped but they are selling it dirt cheap £30, so might be worth a gamble at that perhaps.
