Trying to install for real A1200 later

Hey gang,

So I'm trying to use UAE to get my HD cards ready for install into a real A1200, and getting really frustrated and not making much progress.

I've been away from Amiga for like 20 years, so a LOT has changed.

First I tried to get 3.1.4 installed, and I managed to get it, but only by setting up the WinUAE as a base 1200 with 4MB extra Z3 RAM. When I tried setting it up as having a BlizzardBoard 1230 Mk4, I had no luck at all... I also couldn't figure out how to get anything bigger than a 2GB partition set up. What's the proper ROM file for making WinUAE see the Blizzard board? I installed the MMU libs stuff after the base 3.1.4 install.

Then I tried 3.9. Again, had to set up as a base 1200 with expanded RAM. Couldn't seem to do the install to the CF card, had to do it to a harddisk directory.

What am I doing wrong? I thought 3.1.4 and 3.9 were supposed to support bigger partitions? What's the right ROM to use for the Blizzard to show up?

Should I just hold off and wait until I can install on the actual 1200 (it's getting recapped right now, and I need a PSU still)? Will that make it easier or is going UAE the better route?

You don't need any Blizzard 1230 rom in WinUAE, just use a simple A1200 / 030 / Fast Ram and Kick 3.1.4 rom configuration.
You have to clean your CF with Diskpart in Windows and use that as HardDrive in the harddrive setting of WinUAE. You must click on RDB Mode and use the IDE setting as device (not UAE).
First partition < 2GB and throgh HDToolBox you can initialize the rest of CF.
3.1.4 rom contains a new scsi.device, so it's simple to create partition on the CF card.

When you take the CF to A1200 you must use Blizkick on Startup-Sequence to map the new Kick 3.1.4 file located in DEVS
