Need someone to test dual-boot hard drive

I have created a hard drive that is indented to be used with one of my A3000 configs. It is a dual-boot hard drive that has partitions named WB_1.3 and WB_2.x, along with the Devs:kickstart file specially designed for both of these. There is also a Work partition that got created when I installed WB 2.0 through the proper channels.

Right now, the hard drive automatically boots to 2.0, but I read if you press both mouse buttons during booting, the Early Startup menu appears, so I believe that I did everything right. However, I can't test this out myself because my Apple Magic Mouse is crap, so I need someone to test this out for me. You will need the Kickstart 1.4 ROM in order for this to work.

Works as you described. Boots to 2.0 by default and when you boot with both mouse buttons pressed the Kickstart selection menu show up and can then boot into either 2.0 or 1.3

I'v just tested it's possible to use 2 keys on your keyboard or gamepad to simulate the mousebuttons.
