A600 CF Boot

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but i've just discovered that you can boot Workbench from a Fat32 formatted CF card via the PCMCIA slot.

The card is a Sandisk Ultra, supplied with the EastADF adapter from Amigakit.

You can use a floppy or a HD to boot the CF with this Startup-sequence. (credit to ppill + Grizzly Adams for the idea).

mount CF0:
movesys cd CF0:
execute S:Startup-Sequence

Erm, you've missed a load of steps... like what needs to be installed on the boot floppy disk / boot IDE HD to get to this stage.

You need to install :


Plus you should note that FAT95 (or rather FAT32) cannot support Amiga filenames AFAIK which means games such as Amberstar (Amber_*) cannot be installed.

Yes you're right Alex, but it wasn't meant to be a guide on how to boot CF, only that I managed to boot Workbench from CF Fat32.

Handy if you're ide HD is playing up I suppose
