Thanks Chris. I think we need to add the recovery image to the secure download area on the A-EON Technology website. I will discuss with Matthew.

The problem is, they are also personalised with their Radeon Driver.
So you would end up in the same boat, non booting disc if it had old driver on there.

This was my problem that i didnt know it was my old system that had old radeon drivers and wouldnt bring workbench with radeon hd6850 card. If i only changed to the 4650 that times and try.

Would be nice if the workbench appeared with shell and some error after or for example loading workbench in vga or something that cme would see. then the user would know a bit more.

The First i have done after the new RadeonHD 0.55 is out were: Make with AmiDVD a bootabel OS4.1.6CD and a bootabel USB-Stick.
The Installation-CD are for my Collection ;)

This is why we include a Recovery.iso for customers to burn once they get it.
5 mins and you have a bootable CD of the system as it is once you get it.

Yes but the Recovery.iso has the old RadeonHD (0.54) driver and no HD-Audio and some other newer Updates.

Thats why I made my own Recovery-CD for it. ( DoubleBoot on AmigaOneX1000 and AmigaONE-XE !)

It will be a great Feature when the X1000 can boot straight from a USB-Stick into a Workbench.
But this need an amigaboot.of and/or CFE who can this.

I would love some help with automating the creation of "recovery" ISOs.

My hope would be that we provide a script (Python based?) which would go through SYS: and create a nice recovery ISO image. It could also produce a USB stick which is bootable as an option for those platforms which support it.

@all
I don't have anybody willing to do this kind of work so please contact me if you are interested in helping out.

That would be nice, specially for users that have not much knowledge on how to do it.

I think a good Guide is easier as a Script.

After reading this thread I realized that my own "Boot CD" is also out of date.
Since I have a graphics card model greater than HD4xxx, my original boot CD will not work.

I have very little experience burning CDs under AmigaOS, so I thought I'd write down all
the little details that others might forget.

Of course, if your BootDisk includes a recovery ISO made AFTER the new Radeon drivers,
you should be able to just burn that to a CD. But if your machine was released before then,
you might find this useful.

The Dummies Guide to updating your recovery CD:*


Requirements:
You have a Bootable Recovery CD, like "AmigaOS 4.1 Update 5".
Your current Workbench has been upgraded with the new RadeonHD
drivers.
You have a blank CDROM disk, and a drive capable of burning it.


Step by step:
Check Sys:Utilities for "AmiDVD". If not there, insert the
recovery CD and run the "Extras Installer", then select AmiDVD
and allow it to install.

With the recoveryCD still in the drive, open a Shell and enter
the following commands:
makedir ram:BootVol
copy CD0: ram:BootVol all clone
copy sys:Kickstart/PCIGraphics.card ram:BootVol/System/Kickstart
copy sys:Kickstart/RadeonHD.chip ram:BootVol/System/Kickstart

then make a note of the exact volume name of CD0:. Mine was
"AmigaOS 4.1 Update 5" for this example

Now remove the recovery CD and replace it with a blank CDROM.

Open Sys:Utilities/AmiDVD/AmiDVD
From the "CreateImage" Tab, Set source to RAM:BootVol, then
set VolumeName to "AmigaOS 4.1 Update 5". Select Bootable AmigaOS4,
and finally select "Create Image".

Now on to tab2, "Burn Image", and click on "Burn CD-R"

That's it! The resulting disk should be identical to the original,
but will boot properly with newer graphics cards.

Remember, this new boot image is under the same agreement that the
RadeonHD drivers were distributed under. it is NOT OK to share
this disk with others.


*[edit] "Dummies" was a reference to myself. Since I had ZERO experience when
I wrote this, I wanted the steps to be as simple as possible.
