Amiga 4.1 install on a PC

As a novice, I would like some helps installing Amiga 4.1 on my PC. I originally purchased Amiga forever in 2012. They say I had to upgrade to it to get Amiga4.1 on a pic. So I did. It gave me what's called Amiga 7 forever. I'm getting nowhere. Am I using the correct software? Grateful to anyone who can assist.

Hi Kevin,

There are plenty of people who know more about emulation than I do, but as I understand it, Amiga Forever is a 68K emulator that emulates only OS 3.x, not OS 4.x (which is Power PC code).

I believe that the "A.L.I.C.E." kit from A-Eon runs OS 4.1 under WinUAE emulation, maybe that is what you need (WinUAE, that is).

I've never done it myself yet but here is some info:

You can indeed use Amiga Forever to load and run OS4.1
The latest version has PPC support built in.
