Only AROS and it's Distro's, very similar to AmigaOS, can be installed and run from a cold start on a PC, not AmigaOS itself. In that case use a old PC and not a brand new one. Different OS and architecture inside the machines. Don't bother to try to install a AmigaOS boot up on your real PC harddrive, it won't work and without a recovery partition you have maybe ruined your PC for good.
ma693541,
Well this should help you to understand better. I am not going to install AmigaOS on my boot drive. I want to install it on one of my SCSI drives. I then would like to be able to boot into AmigaOS from that drive. Would I need to install Linux, UAE, and then the AmigaOS?
Thanks,
rich!
P.S. What is your name?
Thanks,
rich!
