Annoying sound before AmigaOS4.1FE tiltle screen.

Post by Lunel »

After moving my X1000 to another location, it plays a strange noise just before the AmigaOS41FE titlescreen.

Does anyone know what this means?

Everything works as usual so is it something I should be worried about?

This has nothing to do that you moved your X1000 to another location. As Trevor stated in other forum is the boot sound from the original Amiga 1000.

No, when i start my X1000 from cold and after varm reboot.

First kickstart files loads, then annoying sound, then AmigaOS4.1FE title screen, then Workbench start and play statsound.

yes. that is the original a1000 boot sound.
you can get rid of it by editing you kicklayout file and commenting the line
MODULE Kickstart/bootsound.kmod

just place a ";" in front of the line.

Many thanks for your help.
I tried, first place a ; in front of MODULE Kickstart/bootsound.kmod, it did not help.
I then found out that it booted from another partition.
I installed os4.1FE in January on SATA port 0.
Later I bought a SSD disk on SATA port 3, and installed 4.1FE on it and changed partionsboot to SSD disk.
But now I see that I boot from SATA 0.
Can OS4.1 not boot from SATA 3?

it was a strange mix between my two partitions.
I have now installed AmigaOS4.1FE again on partion HD0: on SATA 0.
Thanks again for your help.

The OS needs to load its kernel from what is specified in the CFE, then the boot partition with the highest priority is used. You can tell the CFE to look elsewhere for the kernal by editing the Menu, and then (if desired) you can leave your older HDD on port 0 and boot both the kernel and OS from the SSD. I have a BD optical drive on port 1 (that I can used in Ubuntu) and SSDs on my other ports (one SSD is for Ubuntu only) with my older HDDs connected to a Sil3114 for just backups.

you always should use the variable

Code: Select all

os4_bootdevice=auto
in cfe IMO.

having set that the os is then booted from the device the kickstart is loaded from. that's all.
it usually makes no sense to boot from another partition. so that clearly should be the default.
isn't this set as default?

only for debugging or testing purpses it makes sense to use different partitions for kickstart/os-boot.
