A500+ACA500+ACA1220 ClassicWB_OS39_v28 issues and observations

Hello all!!
I would like to report an observation and post an issue.
I am currently running an A500 R5 with an ACA500 and ACA1220. While trying to update to the most "modern" OS available for that machine, I have run into a couple issues.
I installed OS3.9 with BB1 & BB2. Installed ClassicWB OS3.9 v28 using WinUAE onto a CF card. Moved it over to my Amiga and I get a Recoverable Error x2. Once those are clicked away, the OS boots just fine. After digging around a bit and not finding much as per definitive answers, I started shuffling around files and booting. Most of the info I found online spoke about the setpatch and Rom Update files. So installed OS3.9 and copied the Setpatch and Amiga Rom Update files. Installed BB1 and did the same. Installed BB2 and dito. So, I have multiple versions of each.
Found it's the Setpatch that is causing the issue. I did not touch the Startup-Sequence, but replaced the Setpatch from BB1 and the machine boots without issue.

Does anyone have any insight on this?

But I also noticed that the Aux CF slot does not show at all. Even since just the bare OS 3.9 install.
I commented out all the lines in the Startup-Sequence that relates to the ClassicWB update, the first 26 lines or so. At that point it's a horrible failure, but it boots and does show the Aux CF drive. I restored the Startup-Sequence and the machine boots fine, but no Aux CF.

Does anyone know how to "have it all"? How do I get the Aux CF to show?
