I have the same version with 3; 32k modules and the math. Startup is almost instant to the cursor and is the same on my other 5 machines of differing versions.

Have you tried executing the OFF IO command, then check the startup. IO can be on even when a loop is NONEXISTANT and mine then exhibits the slow start if I had not selected OFF IO after using the tape deck, ink jet printer, disc drive...


Yes, I checked this, however will do so again. Of course I can't tell if it makes a difference until tomorrow, as shortly after shutdown it always comes right back on as noted.

Maybe you're right and I just spaced out on the IO OFF. Will know in the morning..

Thanks Geoff.
