FYI, TOS 1.04 on my 1040ST takes about 1 minute to boot if there is no floppy
in the internal drive, versus about 4 seconds with a floppy inserted [in both
cases, no external floppy/hard drive connected]. That's why every ST owner
learned to always put a formatted (write protected for safety) floppy in the
drive when booting.
