Amiga OS3.9 - Invalid Resident Library

Hi, having some problems with a clean install of os3.9.

I have a 4000T with CS060/SCSI - fresh 4gb partition on a clean bootable drive.

Because it is clean and cannot boot the cd, I created the emergency boot disk which boots up into workbench 3.9 from a copy of the emergency-boot folder from the cd which is held on the hdd - again to avoid problems with the cd.

So no problems there.

Problem is once I had managed that, I went through the install, which duly populated the hdd but it will not boot. Each time I get invalid resident library. ROMS are def 3.1 and I tried replacing the rom update file with the one from emegency-boot - in fact I tried all sorts and nothing works, just get invalid resident library which means no wb

Can anyone help? My knowledge is a bit thin - new amiga after having retired them for a good number of years!

mm...I don't understand

Is there something wrong with your cd-rom so you can use the Os3.9 cd in it along with the emergency-disk?

I struggled to get the cdrom up and working from the emergency boot disk. I suspect it may be because it is hung on the CS SCSI rather than the main board. COpying the cd to the hdd and modifying the startup-sequence on the floppy allowed me to boot up OK but then after installing os3.9 onto the hdd using the installer - problem above.

really strange, same problem with install 3.1 disk i.e. invalid resident library

A4000T doesn't have Workbench.library in ROM, it needs special Workbench disks....maybe the lib is needed in your case
