Arrow Strange problem using WHDLoad on compact flash IDE hard drive

My system is my ancient and well used A1200 with 3.0 39.106 ROMS, 2MB Chip 4MB Fast, using a 4GB Compact Flash with CF to IDE adapter from AmigaKit UK.
The OS is Bloodwych's ClassicWB LITE (WB3.0) with registered WHDLoad. (Thanks Bloodwych and WHDLoad and WinUAE boffins, you guys are immortals )

I get the invalid kickstart message for some AGA games (like Deluxe Galaga AGA). but not all AGA games:
In my real Amiga, and also with my CF hard drive plugged into WinUAE.
But if I change WinUAE and set the HD Controller to UAE, I get no errors and it all works. So, how on earth can I make it work with my real amiga?

Notes: On my real amiga I am unable to access DH0: using ClassicWB's maxmem bootup / gamesmenu, but there is no such problem in WinUAE with the same drive using UAE or IDE0 HD controller and ROM 3.0.

I have tried going into HDToolbox / Partition Drive / Advanced / and setting maxtransfer to 0x1ef0000, this doesn't seem to solve anything (unless I'm doing it wrong).

I just can't puzzle it out! any ideas?
