FS-UAE boot on hard drive

Hello Frode,

First of all, thanks and congratulations for your huge work

With FS-UAE 1.3.5, I tried to set 2 hard drives giving a folder path.

hard_drive_0 = /Users/david/Documents/FS-UAE/Hard Drives/System
hard_drive_1 = /Users/david/Documents/FS-UAE/Hard Drives/Work

These folders were copied from Amiga Forever 2012 CD, but FS-UAE does not boot on the 0 drive and go directly to the prompt. However, It is possible to browse the HDDs when they are mounted as a second drive (with a HDF file on the first one).

Is something missing in the configuration ? Or is it a true "Amiga" problem as the folders seems completes and work with E-UAE and AForever

Thanks for your help,
Best regards

At the prompt enter


It will tell you the volume name of the boot drive. Which one is it?

Does /Users/david/Documents/FS-UAE/Hard Drives/System/S/Startup-Sequence exist?

Is /Users/david/Documents/FS-UAE/Hard Drives/System write enabled?

Try to enter /Users/david/Documents/FS-UAE/Hard Drives/System/ as hard_drive_0 (with a trailing / after the directory name).

Try to set System as hard drive 1 and Work as drive 0 (perhaps boot order is reversed).

Booting Amiga Forever drives should work (I have tested this). I wouldn't be surprised if there is an issue with permissions, as thomas suggests. Try:
chmod -R u+rw "/Users/david/Documents/FS-UAE/Hard Drives/System"
chmod -R u+rw "/Users/david/Documents/FS-UAE/Hard Drives/Work"
You should post FS-UAE.log if this does not help to give us additional clues. Also, a trailing slash on directory names is not necessary.

Thanks for your replies !
The problem was due to the folder permissions. Boot is ok.
