Okay i solved it now. I m using a wireless keyboard and mouse. If its connected when i m booting it doesnt load workbench. If i boot without it its working and a beautiful workbench appears. NOW, if i insert the usb-reciever again both keyboard and mouse is working :-) If i can get this to work when i m booting it would be great!!

Try booting from the OS4.1 install CD with the Mouse and Keyboard plugged in.
Sams had some problems with keyboards.Mice and Hubs after update 3.
If this works ok it will eliminate other issues .

Have you tried the other USB ports. Also another Keyboard and mouse if possible ? .
If this pair did not work with a boot from the update 2 CD OS Install then its uphill for update 3 and 4 .
The other suggestion is to check the load on your power supply by testing it with an extra hard drive connected.
m3x from Acube has said that many SAm460 USB problems are caused by the power supply not having enough load .

I would be interested to see a usb.log file.

Could you cold boot with the wireless M&K plugged in, and then remove and replug to get it working
and post the log here ?

PS Use the 'hidden' function for the log post. Just highlight the log part of the post and click hidden.

Hard too see any usb.log file. I took this pic to show you how it looks. I connect usb and keyboard after this and write loadwb. Then i can pull down this greybox and see workbench. There is no usb.log file under t: in ram:

again both keyboard and mouse is working.


My first thought is 'How the h___ is it doing that'.

From the picture it looks like the computer is booting using Boot_without_Startup-Sequence.

Hardware? Software? Communications?

Communications.

Try moving the the M&K or computer to where it is almost Line-of-sight to the USB receiver
for those units.

Low or a single bad battery in the mouse or keyboard can cause erroneous communications.

Generally there is only one transmitter for the mouse & keyboard. If yours has a on-off switch
try turning it off and booting, or remove the batteries. If that makes no difference then the
problem may be the receiver is not being recognized properly.

If the transmitter is in the mouse you could remove the batteries for the keyboard and see what
happens.

Software. Make sure you have a second boot source before messing around.

There are two different sets of drivers for the mouse and keyboard. Since you say they work fine
after workbench is fully loaded and then plug in the receiver that would leave the boot drivers.
In the Kicklayout file you can 'comment out' the Bootmouse and/or Bootkeyboard modules to test this.
Doing this however will deny you access to the Early Start menu, which your probably not using at this time anyway.

The second set of drivers take over control when startup reaches the line 'USBctrl START' in your
S:Startup-sequence. These are the drivers that are active when plugging USB stuff in after workbench
is loaded. USBctrl also starts the logging and why explains you don't have one,,,,because it's not
getting to that command line.

Hardware.

You can try different USB ports or plug the receiver into a hub. Hubs are not recognized until
USBctrl START.

See what happens with other mouse and keyboard combos.

I can experience the same behaviour with an USB key connected to my AmigaOne XE or my Sam440. When connected before boot, I get the same screen.
