OS 3.1.4 - Amiga 1200 with 68030 Card

Postby Thunder43 » Tue Apr 02, 2019 2:22 pm

I have an Amiga 1200 with accelorator card DKB Cobra 68030 @ 28 http://amiga.resource.cx/exp/cobra with 128 MB Ram. For this device I bought an OS 3.1.4 set (Kickstart ROMs, floppy disks, ready configured 8GB CF card). I have installed the ROMs and the CF card but the Amiga doesn't boot. When I remove the card, it boots without problems.

Do I still have to install a driver for the card (I have never needed one before under 3.1) or do these accelerator cards not work with the new system, but I can't believe it?

Hi Thunder43,

Does the Cobra accelerator work on the same Amiga with a 3.1 rom?

Yes, with old 3.1 Kickstart I have no problems. All is running fine. With the new Kickstart it does not boot (no CF and no floppy).

If you remove the CF card, does it show the insert-disk-screen?

When you switch power on, does the power LED act normally? It should first glow half bright and half a second later change to full brightness. If it does not do this, the Kickstart is not executed.

BTW, the page you linked says "needs firmware update for Kickstart 3.1, otherwise it works only with memory removed". Does it work better if you remove the memory from the card?

Thanks for your help. I have found the error now. The shield of the mainboard pressed on the accelerator card and caused a short circuit. Strangely enough the combination Kickstart 3.1 + Workbench 3.1 didn't care. I never had any problems. I bent the sheet metal and now Kickstart 3.1.4 + Workbench 3.1.4 runs without problems with the card and 128 MB Ram.
