I am testing this on a TR.
Nextor is working fine and I can read an sdcard, but I am unable to boot from it; the machine always goes to MsxView, and from there need to go to basic and do _system, then run the proper command2.com.

You probably know this by now, but it makes no sense to use RAMHELPR and INL on a GR8NET. Internestor Lite is a TCP-IP stack for network adapters that do not provide TCP-IP protocol built-in (i.e.: Obsonet), and processing TCP-IP on z80 is something not fast (thus why Obsonet is quite slower than other adapters that have TCP-IP protocol built-in).

You can use any UNAPI application on a GR8NET, as if I'm not mistaken, it fully implements everything that is possible to implement, except for SSL/TLS connections (which is only used on the latest HGET if you try to connect to https, only SM-X and SX-1 have this implemented, or, you can use Nestor Tunnel to a PC or Raspberry, but I don't really know how that works).

INL mostly won't work with GR8NET because it expects an Ethernet UNAPI specification device, which OBSONET is, but GR8NET is not (it would not make sense to be, as the device has TCP IP stack built-in).

Check the firmware switch, on a FS-A1GT the firmware boots to MSX-View. If you change the switch it will boot from the SD immediately.
