Anyway, do an experiment. Get loadbsd-2.16 and GENERIC kernel image (ungzip it) from distribution. Put them into same directory on AmigaOS. Try to load the kernel with:

loadbsd kernelfile
You might want to use -A parameter to force VGA compatible video mode. Just running loadbsd without any parameters will print possible options.

See if it will boot. Pass wd0b (your swap) as root device to run installer.
I used the same arguments to xstreamtodev as you quoted

I'm wondering whether the type of disk drive I am using could be an issue? It's not a real IDE drive:

Though the Amiga HD Tools had no trouble seeing it..

I'll try the stuff you suggested tomorrow I have the unit at work
