Re: How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

Strike 3. All hang at the boot screen when booting from mass media device. #1 MultiWrite from Linux created a copy of the .ISO I downloaded from Hyperion. Failed to boot past 640x480ish Workbench screen that say's booting. Cursor still moves though. At the Mass Media command line that pops up I am t...

Re: How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

Hmm, just made another USB stick but from Mac this time. Using DD command. Same thing... starts to boot from USB stick and hangs but with cursor alive at the boot screen for the Installer. Will let it go for 30 minutes. See what happens before I create an ISO myself of my know good CD I got with my ...

Re: How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

Well I made a boot USB stick from my loonix box. Used an app called MultiWriter that supposed to write an .ISO to USB sticks. Appeared to work OK. Slapped the USB stick in my X5K in the rear of the machine (not front case ports) and got myself to the early boot menu, selected boot from mass storage,...

Re: How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

Me neither.... believe I am doing it right but maybe I am not. Nice to have a self sufficient Amiga but if I can't do it here, will dd elsewhere. :lol: TJ Not sure what is going wrong. Suggestion for now is try on a different machine or OS (Linux or Windows) . For Windows USB-Image-tool works for me...

Re: How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

Its name was DH0 btw. So that is what I in my rawdisk command. That name is a bad idea since the system partition on your hard drive is usually DH0. You don't have to accept the default device name that Media Toolbox shows in the "Edit Partitions" window. You can click in the string gadge...

Re: How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

Is the USB drive showing as uninitialized after rebooting from media toolbox ? If not then you need to press "Install/read configuration" in the RDB/disk geomety editing window in Media Toolbox to reset the write area on the USB drive . Yes, right now DH0:Uninitialized is what mounted. I ...

Re: How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

Sorry, after a partition on the USB stick in Media Toolbox and save and reboot, then rawdisk... the start block does not show 0. Shows the same # as before. Hence I get the same error message again when trying it. Its name was DH0 btw. So that is what I in my rawdisk command. Is there anything in th...

Re: How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

The start block is causing the problem. It needs to start from block 0 . Try with a Windows type NTFS (Not NGFS) formatted USB Drive. Edited as the Media Toolbox Install from AmigaOS no longer shows a drive icon after reboot. Sorry, must be a block-head as I have tried several other USB sticks I ha...

Re: How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

How to make bootable USB Drive of Amiga OS 4.1FE CD

Is there a step-by-step posted someplace that shows how I can create an exact copy of my Amiga OS 4.1FE CD I received with my X5K onto a USB Thumb Drive so I can boot from it and install Amiga OS in case my internal CD/DVD ever bites it or I opt to get rid of it. These days many are going CD/DVD les...
