Missing install disk!! please help!!

I know you guys are all fed up of me - but its been so complicated - my ethernet card arrives soon and it looks like it wont work either .. so great another failed attempt.

So i have a 5.1gb laptop hard drive which i can format to 2gbs or whatever it doenst matter how much is wasted, so i was gonna put that in the amiga (which i have), format it, put it in the pc - and then using winuae copy some files over.. So I need to use HdToolbox which is on the install disk..

But look at my image - for some freaking reason the install disk is missing! Im desperately asking if anyone would consider copying and posting me a Workbench 3.0 install disk!! I can pay with profit!! cheque, whatever! ill send cash!

I helped someone here a few years back who had corrupted workbench original disks - he sent me the original disks and I copied onto them. Unfortunately I don't have access to my Amiga at the moment or I would have done the same since it appears you own a legal copy.

Check pm, it might help.

Following on from the pm here so others can help:

Do you know what cross dos is? It will allow you to format, read and write PC useable disks on your A1200.

These disks can then be used to copy say a zipped or lha'd "install.adf" which you can decompress into the ram disk, finally writing the image back to an amiga floppy.

Some instructions with my ClassicWB

Look at the File Transfer Link

Loads of small apps on aminet for writing/decompressing once you get the install.adf over. There are cli commands unadf and unzip for starters.

If you still need someone to write the disk, better reopen the pley. As I said, I don't have access to my A1200 at the mo.

Well i could always email an ADF of the "Install" for 3.0

But somehow you will have to write the ADF back to DD disk.
And we all know what a bitch that can be, unless you have a PCI Catweisel in your PC.

The Install disk only shipped with A1200HD machines, ie. those with a pre-installed hard drive. However, all the install disk does is copy the other disks to your hard drive.

You can download an HDToolBox replacement here:


This is often much more useful than Commodore's original.

Once you have the disk prepped, boot from the Workbench floppy and tap the following into a CLI window (hope this is right; I haven't done this for years):

resident c:copy
resident c:makedir
copy df0:#? dh0: all

[wait for copying to finish, then swap to the Extras disk]

copy df0:#? dh0: all

[wait again, then insert the Fonts disk]

makedir dh0:Fonts
copy df0:#? dh0:Fonts all

[wait, then insert the locale disk]

makedir dh0:Locale
copy df0:#? dh0:Locale all

[wait, then insert the Storage disk]

makedir dh0:Storage
copy df0:#? dh0:Storage all

And that's it. The Install disk also includes a slightly modified startup-sequence, but the differences are minimal.

Maybe someone else who's installed WB from floppy recently'll check the above script to make sure I haven't missed anything.
