Amiga: Less than 1% of games hard drive installable.
MS-DOS: Almost 100% of games hard drive installable.

Let's face it. Before WHDLoad, playing games on the Amiga sucked.

Why does it need an AGA fix? As you've said yourself, having 1 (or 2) mb of chip does not mean it's an AGA machine.

Also, the WHDLoad slave only requires 1 mb of memory.

Check the voltages from the power supply. As someone else suggested the machine may also need to be recapped.

Also make sure you are not using a bad crack of your movie playing software.

I would argue that anyone who has to regularly reboot without S-S to run a demo has a poor setup. On my minimalistic WB installation it's very rare to have to do such a thing.

It's not true that there are "lots" of HD viruses. There's not even "lots" of bootblock viruses.

However after doing some research on HNY96 I stand corrected.

With ECS/AGA it is possible to switch between what the Amiga erroneously calls PAL and NTSC in software (eg Early Startup Menu in KS 2.04+, or WHDLoad).

Additionally a switch can be installed.
