AmigaOs 3.1.4 install cdrom

Postby flip971 » Tue Aug 13, 2019 1:19 am

Hi to all,

I have buyed the 3.1.4 for all My Amigas (500/600/2000/1200ppc/4000ppc) the roms images and the floppy images.
I lost a lot of time to find several disks to use to make the full set of installation disks.
Why didn't create a bootable iso to semplify the istallation (and adding some little stuff, like the icon pack and wallpapers already set to use) like the 3.5 or 3.9?

Thanks, Flip971.

Hi Flip971,

Not all advertised Amigas come with a cd-rom, and those that may have one are not guaranteed to allow bootable cdroms. But certainly all of them do come with a floppy drive.

Then there is the fact that 3.1.4 was a progression on 3.1, which came on 6 floppies. AmigaOS 3.1.4 came on 6 floppies too.

The only difference between floppy sets are the modules disks, all other disks are the same. So according to your post you would only need a total of 8 disks.

No only that, but there is a healthy amount of ways to avoid dealing with physical floppies: like using Gotek drives, the Amiga RPI device (a RaspBerry Pi that emulates a floppy drive), using emulators, mounting their images using amiga programs, etc.
