Blizzard 1260 problems. Please help.

Just refitted my Blizzard 1260 into my desktop Amiga 1200 after a fresh install of Workbench.

I've installed the Blizzard 1260 processor libraries that came with the card (via the installation disk), and now my system is crashing on boot... it's driving me nuts.

On bootup I'm getting:

Program failed (error #80000004)
Wait for disk activity to finish

Do I need to add anything to my setpatch line or include CPU060 or whatever in the startup sequence?

I can confirm the card is working as in the early boot menu screen when holding both mouse buttons and going to expansion board diagnostic, the card is listed as working... I've also booted with no startup-sequence (via early boot menu) and my fast ram is listed so everything is working apart from my machine crashes on boot with the above error.

Please help, I'm longing to get my miggy up and running again... I use to remember how to solve this problem but where I've taken a long break after returning back to the amiga scene my memory now fades me :-(

i've really no clue, but maybe updating the 060 libs will help ( phase5.a1k.org ).
or maybe the MaxTransfer settings for your harddrive in hdtoolbox - dunno about correct value, but search eab-board for "maxtransfer".
maybe no help, but something to play with

when does it guru ? when u run the wb install program, the 060 libs or after all that is installed ? im pretty sure u need to disable your 060 when u install your wb and your 060 libs or the machine will crash, but i might be remembering wrong, been awhile since i did a reinstall.
u shouldnt need to add anything to your setpatch line and cpu060 is not needed aswell, infact i don't even know what its for myself
u should grab the libs from link above aswell, but they shouldnt be needed to get your 060 booting, what u have should be fine

Surely the dummy libraries. I think you haven't installed the small 68040.library (dummy) witht he P5 install package..


please copy the 68060.library from (maybe also the 68040.library one). I'm not on the classic for well checking.


read the readme.

I have pratically never used P5 libraries since years, allways the MMUlibs one, with my 1260.
