Amiga500 SCSI Harddrive need help !

Hi !

Is there a way to force a A500+ KS2.0 to boot from DF0: with a connected
30MB SCSI Harddrive ?

My problem is that i have formatted the hard drive and now
the amiga is not booting into WB 2.0 Disk anymore when the hard drive is
conncted. When i disconnect the hard drive the WB-Disk boots normal.

help please !

Hold down both mouse buttons during reset until the early startup menu appears, then click on DF0.

If it still does not boot from floppy, do the same again, but click on Advanced Options and disable the harddisk partitions.

Actually you must have done something very wrong. Normally there is no easy way to make it want to boot from HDD while a floppy disk is in the drive.

Must have HDD boot priority over floppy - odd (means over 5 afair).
