Did it actually boot from tape or simply use, read the tape @nukecad 


Booted from the tape, can't remember which machine it was (maybe an early Spectrum?) but it had to load the OS from the tape before it would do anything else.

The early Atari ST was similar but those had the OS on a 3.5" floppy 'system disc' rather than a cassette.
They were only on sale for about six months, later Atari ST versions had the OS in ROM.
