Re: recommissioning SAM460

... This morning I tried your idea of connecting the hard drive in another port, and switched the hard drive and the CD drive sockets. And the hard drive booted, and I am using it now. Hooray! Later I will see if I can boot the CD any more. ... Wohooo!!! At last now you can boot from HDD :-) Now re...

Re: recommissioning SAM460

... No, I haven't tried that. I assumed that since I can use the drive for everything but booting, it must be connecting OK. I might try hooking it up where I have the CD drive connected currently and see if that makes any difference. ... It has been so long since I have done that, I was unable to ...

Re: recommissioning SAM460

... OK, I was being a bit dense in my last response. My brain is rapidly turning into mush and I may not be able to even use a computer much longer. But Media Toolbox seems to verify that I had already installed SLB into ST1000DM Z1D5: Under AmigaOne boot code (SLB) it says "I:slb_v2, 29036 bytes, ...

Re: Fixing screen size and internet on a newly installed SAM

... Having copied the last into the new Kickstart, it has the same version number of course. One result of that copy is that Prefs > Screenmode is now fully populated to Board 0: 1280x1024 ARGB32. I'm not sure what "Board 0" means, but in any event selecting that last mode made no change in the Wor...

Re: recommissioning SAM460

... it is very difficult to open Media Toolbox if you can't boot Workbench. ??? Nop, but didn't you succesfully boot an AmigaOS4 CD finally? If you boot AOS4 CD, there you have MediaToolbox and can use it to add/install SLB. Except that AOS4 CD is read-only. I had to wait until I could boot on a wr...

Re: recommissioning SAM460

I set env variables as I intended, left the CD tray empty but plugged in the flash drive that had been reported as successfully installed with AOS, and rebooted: AOS4 FLB found AOS4 SLB ... One of the oddities: When I booted from the flash drive yesterday, I got a screen that was narrower than my m...

Re: recommissioning SAM460

SAM460 machine do need SLB to find/boot AmigaOS4. You just need to open MediaToolbox and in 'AmigaONe boot code (SLB)' you should see/have in L:slb_v2 Just open/start MTB, choose your HDD and choose 'Edit RDB/Reinstall...' option and post here waht you have/see in 'AmigaONe boot code (SLB)' (read o...

Re: recommissioning SAM460

OK, my secret plan worked. According to the install disk output, I successfully installed Amiga OS4.1 FE on the DH0: that I emptied (into Miscellany:X1000sysBackup/, just on the ever-diminishing chance I should ever get the X1000 running again) from my X1000 AOS4 disk. It said I should remove the D...

Re: recommissioning SAM460

My SAM460ex boot disk came today. Putting it in the CD tray has so far changed nothing. What exactly happens when you start the machine with the CD in the drive? I had to take photos, but I'll just copy here: [some kinda picture]Sam460ex power for free minds Config: PCIe 4x + PCIe 1x USB: scanning ...
