ClassicWB 3.9 installation problems

So I installed WB3.1 to a CF card through WinUAE, upgraded it to WB3.9, mounted the ClassicWB 3.9 hdf file, ran the installer, after it finished I unmounted it and restarted to low and behold! the WB3.9...

So I did it again but with a 1GB hdf I made in WinUAE to the same result. It seems like the files are not getting coppied to DH0 for some reason, I then tried copying over the files from the ClassicWB3.9 hdf to DH0, but then DH0 thinks its the installer, I have not found anything like this online after a couple of google searches and reading a few guides.

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Any help would be appreciated!

Sorry, wasn't sure what this fell under, I don't think it's a WinUAE specific problem, however I do not know if I would have the same issue on my real amiga (no CD drive though) but I would imagine the installation process is quite different.

Have you made the boot sector bootable? I think the AmigaDOS command is "install dh0:" for device dh0:.

Harddrive booting has never used boot blocks.

It sounds like partition hardfile with geometry that isn't pre-OS3.5/3.9 compatible. Use RDB hardfiles (=partitioning done using hdtoolbox) or at least increase surfaces to 16 (from default 1).

Thanks for the help!l I got it booting with 3.9 now!
...but now I seem to have a different issue. So all seems to be good with booting, but now my 14ish Gb DH1 partition shows up as uninitialized and greyed out on my A1200. Both the 1GB boot drive and this 14GB storage drive are formatted with pfs3, and have a known working scsi.device with skiprom updates for the scsi.device in the startup sequence.

I have been scouring the internet trying to figure out this one, I have found a couple things about diskchange (which doesn't seem to do anything on the A1200) and checking other settings for the drive (which all seem to match up) so I'm at a loss as to what to do next. The identifier on DH1 is 0x50465303 max transfer is 0x1fe00. Not really sure what I'm missing, this card worked with this same scsi.device when I had CWB3.1 installed and it had a bigger DH1 partition!

I believe this was related to a seemingly different issue, and has been solved.
