Smile A500 gvp hd8+ install

Hello people,
Been messing around with my gvp hd8+ (it has the 8mb fast in it now)
I've got hold of a copy of gvp hd8+ hard drive A500 install disk
My Kickstart screen says 2.0
(God knows where my original workbench disks are, I still have version 1.3 disks for my other a500 but as you know they won't help me)
Question is...
Which exact version of workbench do I need to do the workbench install to hard disk?

I made adf's into real disks (version 2.0 so I thought) last night and when I tried them it said only for A600 and stopped the install?

Also can you recommend somewhere I can get the correct adf's which we know are what they say they are, I have a tosec set but mine only has games, demos and apps no workbench disks.

I do have another hard drive coming which somebody is going to get that all pre-loaded for me, but I want to use this tiny little hard drive which came with it to mess around and learn how to do it myself.

Or can I have any advice on how to do this, what disk to boot first? Do I boot from the gvp disk then do the install, or do I load workbench then use workbench install disk.

Thanks in advance for any help.
(Please don't cain me for trying to get hold of pirate material, I own 2 real amiga's and once upon a time has all the disks)

Since you have KS2.0x, install WB2.1.

my dear paulcan, I believe the board rules prohibits us to give links to download workbench images, no matter how many amigas you claim to own. But you may remedy yourself very easily by a quick google search. Would just like to let you know that you can search pages in different languages in google. [ Show youtube player ] ?

But surely you can find Classic Workbench Green Alien Amiga Edition, it is an ideal set-up for OCS/ECS machines like yours and very easy to set using WinUAE.
