An interesting data point:
I tried using drivewire images instead of the sdc, thinking it might be
something odd with my sdc.
This image, when booting from a DW mounted image, also failed in
seemingly the same place:
*but* the L2 version at
booted just fine.
As I'm reading that the difference between L2 and L3 is in the memory
manager, does this suggest something odd with my 512k memory upgrade?
Its a Tandy AXX-7117. Is there a diagnostic tool anyone recommends?

I'm using the 68SDC.VHD image. It loops through the modules and after ...'Clock Clock2 it*j' it stops and says 'FAILED'. I am running in a 512K coco3 with 6809. Thoughts?
>>> Concerning this one - are you running an SDC straight out the cartridge port, or through a multi-pak (or one of the modern equivalents)? There was a bug with detecting the SDC in certain slots of the multi-paks, which I thought we had fixed in 6.0.1.
