Post subject:  How to reboot atari back to the My IDE II cartridge

After I am finished running a game from the myide II fat32 loader I'd like to hit reset and have it go back to the My IDE II loader (where I can select fat32 loader again). When I hit the reset button, though, it goes to basic. You have to power cycle the atari 800XL to go back to the cartridge menu. I ready the MyBIOS "manual" and it aludes to holding shift+ctrl+esc to reset? This doesnt work though (for me). Maybe I'm misunderstanding. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Without booting MyBIOS first and then the fat-loader:
Yes, You must power-cycle the machine.
(Since the hotkeys are only working with the MyBIOS loaded)

Did you already update the cartridge, if not, perhaps a good idea.

Number #7 is the latest.

You could ask Steven to buy the reset-button on the cartridge.
This means drilling a hole and soldering the add-on.

Grtz,
Sijmen.
