All I know is the ClassicWB works fine in WinUAE and on my basic real A1200 (8MB Fastram, 2GB HD), with none of the problems you’ve outlined above.

Is this the latest version of the ClassicWB? If so, have you tried disabling FBlit from the tools menu? FBlit is a big patch (replaces blitter with CPU) and the first thing I’d try removing especially with the icon problem you’ve mentioned.

Another method is to remove non-standard options one-by-one from the user-startup file by placing “ ; “ in front of them and see if it helps. There are very few patches and non-standard entries on top of the required Scalos and MUI, so finding a conflicting entry shouldn’t take long.

If no solutions seem to be surfacing and since you say all of these issues started after installing the ClassicWB, it’s unlikely to be faulty hardware. I’d remove it and start your own Workbench. Something must be conflicting with your particular setup or perhaps before installing the ClassicWB you’d changed partition sizes and the parameters are not correct for the large drive (maxtransfer too large, partition size and boot limitations exceeded etc).

If you can’t get it stable, I’d start building your own Workbench from scratch or install OS 3.5/9. Anything rather than letting your A1200 rot in the corner!
As always Bloodwych, you are super helpful and your one hell of a nice guy!. Thankyou for all your help with this one and for taking the time to sit down and give me so many options as to what may be the cause.

Im actually poping over to Europe in 2008 for a trip, so i might pay you a visit so that i can meet the man behind the masterpiece that is ClassicWB.
