The self test code says this:

1136|                       ;  Check disk alive indicator
1136| 4282                          CLR.L   D2              ;clear for

Error 57 comes from the above code (EDISK). It's looking for the DiskDiag line to be set within 15 seconds. You get this error when that doesn't happen.

Which could indicate several things: VIA2 might be bad - very unlikely, especially if you can boot off a ProFile.

It could be a problem with the drive or more likely the Lisa Lite board. It could also be a bad I/O board.

What kind of Lisa do you have? Specifically, which I/O board do you have, and what kind of floppy does it use? 400K? 800K? Is there a Lite board?
