Alright, after having re-read your posting a couple of times,
it took me a while to figure out that this is what you seem
to want to know:

Will an external drive be recognized as A: when no internal
one exists ?

The answer is: No.

This has got nothing to do with any TOS internal variables
you might have read about. In all STs with internal drive,
the wiring is different to ones without. As a result, the
splitting into drive A: and B: is inside the STf or STfm and
not available on the external connector at all.
