    Kickstart switcher
  • eliminates the need for disk-based Kickstart and so makes the A1000 boot faster
  • one socket with Kickstart 1.2 or 1.3 installed
  • can be switched back to Kickstart disk based operation with a jumper for pre-1.3 software compatibility
  • pressing Control Amiga Amiga for more than three seconds will also revert to disk based Kickstart
  • frees up the 256 kB Kickstart RAM
  • connects to the 68000 socket
  • the PAL at location 6J of the WCS daughterboard has to be replaced with the supplied PAL
  • can be installed together with the DKB Insider - KwikStart has to be at the bottom, Insider on top of it
