Mine is 2014.04 Oct 17 2016 - 8:22:22

So same as yours yet.... clearly not the same as yours.

LOL.

I guess A-Eon or whomever does the uBoot on these X5K (I purchased mine from Amiga On The Lake November 2016) has same #s but the text is not the same.

So, guessing I would need to adjust my massboot text at least but would have to read all the rest to see if any other differences are there.

Would have to get my comb out for that <grin>

Your U-boot settings are virtually identical to the default settings that my machine came with in June 2017 .

Trying to remember UBoot from back when I used it regularly on the A1 XE: The principle is that a line like "massboot=usb reset ; boota" (taken from xenic's settings) is really a script definition, as it sets the symbol (script name, if you like) "massboot" to consist of the two operations "usb reset" and "boota". The corresponding "script" in TJ's massboot is less useful, as it only prints out the message "Running Mass Storage Boot". So TJ should definitely change that one.

Probably something like:

setenv massboot "usb reset; boota"<enter>
saveenv<enter>

in the UBoot prompt.

"boota" itself is the command that loads an Amiga system, based on the current settings.

Dsiclaimer: All from memory, I use CFE on the X1000 most of the time now.

Best regards,

Niels

Now looking at my current U-Boot settings I see the difference.

Code: Select all

massboot=usb reset ; boota
Probably changed it after reading this post

Thanks Niels....

Spectre660, can you confirm for me the text above from Niels is correct for me to type in uboot command line to make the change?

Thanks

Super guys! That worked....

So, that one line in uBoot from mine was not allowing Amiga OS 4.1 Installer CD I created on the USB drive to fully boot. Only got part way.

Now... boots all the way to installer stuff.

Thanks!

@ amigasociety

Thank Niels.
I had forgotten that I had modified that line .
I remembered making a copy of my MircorSD card.

Seems A-Eon needs to make this change too. Will save others the heart-ache.

Nice to have an installer now on a USB stick.

I am going DVD/CD less in a new case and wanted to easy means to re-install OS from scratch if it ever comes to that.
