Emu EMAX HD

So I have had this board for a long time, and just recently turned it on(which it does) but it seems to be stuck on "Emu Systems Inc Loading Software" and no matter what button i press on it it remains stuck on that, ive tried porting Midi Out through my Roland D20, but it still remains stuck. I dont have any disks for it either. Anyone have any experience with this issue please reply, i really wanna fire this vintage badboy up and get it working.

Thanks

Sounds like it's trying to boot from HD and your HD is kaput... no surprise considering its age. You could try taking the HD out and giving it a light smack on top to see if the drive head reader is stuck on.... but otherwise think you'll need an Emax floppy disk with OS on to boot (and probably need to disconnect the HD).

I don't use this particular EMU sampler but sure someone on the Facebook Emax group or elsewhere can sort you out.
