Not possible with this, but not needed either. If you connect a Gotek eksternally it will boot that before going to HDD :)

Hi, how are these installed? Can a noob do it? :)

Yes, it is pretty straight forward. You need to remove the EVEN_ CIA chip and plug it into this, then plug it all back in :)

Hej på dig dansken! ;-)

I was thinking... by changing SEL0 and SEL1...

After flipping the switch, to use the external AND the internal you have to have it set to normal booting, turn computer on/reset, wait until internal drive is properly identified by the hardware and then flip the switch (which then can be flipped at any time as long as you don't have disks inserted).
If the boot switch is set to external boot, it will take about ten seconds before firmware will time out and the boot image appears... and the internal drive won't work (noticed by it not clicking anymore).

I was wondering, has anyone made a timed or triggered solution that will auto change the switch to normal at reboot/turn on and then swap to external at the proper time to save those ten seconds and also need no manual flipping of the switch to stay in external boot mode?

It would be quite nice with a "hold reset for two or three seconds" hole less shell solution, but that would kind of require the above automatic boot switching...

Anyone heard of or seen that kind of switch? Anyone know of any way to decrease the timeout time if you're not planning to use the internal drive, just want the external too boot asap?

Hi konpat.

I have just updated the post to "€ 32,50 including shipping to EU-countries" to make it easier :)

In your case 2 x 32,50 = € 65 but I'll give you € 5 discount so total € 60
