After actually looking around a bit, there atleast exists a solution for the 1MB chipmem + some MB othermem users. They can use the good old SWOS HD Installer
which supports up to the 96/97 version of SWOS - see the readme
The only thing to complain about is that it doesnt seem to work with a softkicked kickstart (using SKick
- no mmu or fancy maprom hardware), but otherwise it runs just fine on my 1MB chipmem + 4MB fastmem A500+.
For the 2MB chipmem only case, you should try the JST SWOS installer
which claims to work on a 2MB chipmem only A1200 - see the readme
. It supports up to the 97 update disk SWOS version which also isnt the very latest, but if it works, it will be so much better than no SWOS at all
