Which kind of dual HD drives set are you using? Is it a vintage device (designed for old machines like Spectrum, QL etc)? Or are you using a "new" one, containing "modern" floppy drives (the same used for PC)?

I can confirm that TrumpCard needs non-twisted flat cables for dual FDD.
Can anyone confirm if GoldCard needs twisted cables or not?

Re: All RAM chips destroyed??

Just replaced IC23 with a "new" one and.... no evident progress.
Next step: apply the mandatory modifications adding R102 and R103. Let's hope....
