Re: A1-XE halts during boot after loading kickstart files

Changed envs but still no joy. :(

After loading the Kickstart the machine just stops. No reaction for any inputs.


Yes, it should be installed automatically. And if you boot to system, you can check it in HDtoolbox. But this message not say "HDD have no SLB", but "no SLB found" and it occurs also with improper config of a1ide.

It is strange. So you should use serial debug with other computer.

Or last thing try with u-boot menu reset to factory defaults, and then again set a1ide_conf.
Diasconnect all unnecessary devices, incl. HDD, disable all HW you not need - USB, paralel, second serial,...
And try to boot at first AmigaOS CD only.

Can you post plz exactly information about your memory modules (full chip info, etc), and how much of them and in which ports, etc ,etc with which you have no such issue ?


I have pair of this:
Here.

Is is pair for dual channel, works stable.
Two pairs not works for me.

Sorry, the RAM coolers are saeled, so I cannot post a picture of chips.

@Reynolds
on first video it loads all modules from CD, and not boot from disk. It looks like AmigaOS not see the booting device.
Try this: before all modules loads and kickstart start to load, press both mouse buttons and hold, until you see early startup menu. Here you see all devices visible to AmigaOS before OS boots. Also you can check the priorities, etc.

The second video - no SLB found teel us improper a1ide_conf ( most probably ), or problem with cables, master/slave jumpers, IDE-SATA adapters, wrong filesystem, etc...

And I see on both videos, that you have this config:
primary master: DVD, slave none
secondary master: HDD, slave none

so a1ide_conf should be 2010, not 1200

i.e. type in u-boot commandline:

setenv a1ide_conf 2010
saveenv

I got an A1-XE a while ago, so bought an original OS4.1 CD to make it perfect with no issues.
Now I still have a problem as the machine stops during bootup. The kickstart files are loading but then the reset and switch to Amiga screen just doesn't happen.
The config is an A1-XE (G4@800 MHz, 512 mb ram, a Radeon PCI gfx card an an SB128 for audio.
Anything I should try? 🤔


pls, I cannot understand exactly - the stop during boot occurs only with HDD, or also with boot from CD?

so some ideas:
- if U-boot recognized the disk and start to load kickstart modules it means, that a1ide_conf is properly configured. Otherwise you receive "no SLB found " error.
- try PIO mode ( a1ide_xfer ) as LiveForIt recommend.
- remove all PCI cards and leave only AGP grapgics card. XE have also magic with cards. If it works without card, try to add one-to-one and check in different slots.
- for sure I recommend to use ECC Reg RAM, is much much beter and stable, you can buy cheap 2x1GB on ebay.
- and for sure, set os4_cmdline to "debuglevel=7 serial" and check the debug from other serial connected computer.


I plays with XE a lot, there are sometimes a big magic here, but she can be finally put on good mood.

Here is my article about playing with XE and some magic is mentioned. Yu need goole to translate from Czech.

On this site are also two more articles, more deep, about XE.

@kas1e
And to have two graphics cards is very appropriate when you use linux.

AmigaOS have best drivers for Polaris and Southern Island cards, linux PPC ends with HW support on Northern Island cards.
So HD7970 + HD6670 is perfect combo.

I never got usb to boot either, I know there can be issues with Sata connection too when reading from cd.

The x1000 /os4 always felt like a bit of a beta machine, not quite ready for end users.
saying that it was always fun figuring out how to do things and getting things to work, I had quite a long period of a stable system, but for what ever reason the last few years I just got this random crashing, did a lot of software checking, replaced sata cable, ram, cmos battery, fan on the system, fresh install, etc. it kinda better, but it still crash every now and again, it really put me off using it now, as I don’t want my Amiga time to just be troubleshooting.


I have perfect stable working AmigaOne X1000, with no random crashes.

In past I have two lockups:
- I am not found 4 pcs of RAM to working stable - so I have only two
- In past I also changed the battery and PSU for more powerfull ( I am using two gfx cards, one of them is HD7970 )

I am satisfied with it and I wouldn't trade it for the X5000

Yes, I can confirm that the X1000 appears to be a beta version of the X5000. The X5000 does not have all of the issues that the X1000 does; it truly feels like the next step. At least for the time being, here's what I discovered when comparing the X1000 to the X5000:


at lest two things is missing in your comparison:
- X1000 have better PCIe lines connection. X5000 shares 4 lines for PCIe x4, 3x PCIe x1, 2x PCI
- X1000 slots better suits for two graphics card connection

In the past people kept older version to run particular software. Like an older OS4 where DPaint actually works as they broke it later. Or even when there was better screen mode support for Amiga modes instead of everything running in a tiny 640x480 screen in the corner which isn't even an Amiga compliant size. But that's for a particular use and not a main volume with latest version. How ever there are practical reasons. Such as a user upgraded to FE on their XE then found Partition Wizard was broken. They are only using an XE so don't want to buy this third party package to fix it and why should they? So they keep an older OS4 around to run Partition Wizard which also supports writing to their JXFS volume.

Yes, it is very relevant reason.
But isn't more practical and more functional keep on harddrive two or more versions of system?
I think on all AmigaNG can be created bootmenu for OS selection.

For example I have four different system versions on my AmigaOne XE for testing purposes. And couple of them on Pegasos 2 and X1000.

This way we keep old applications working and save the developer's work.

- instructions how modify PCI settings ( mainly interrupts ), usable for proper setting of PCIe graphics cards and combo cards.

finegrain_cpu_speed=1100

The most important on slow machines like Sam are last two:
cpu_speed and finegrain_cpu_speed
( Originally was there cpu_speed=max. It is good for X1000 or Pegasos 2, but sound lags on Sam440)

These are the same adjustments, only finegrain_cpu_speed is more precise and cpu_speed is rough.
cpu_speed=1 is equal finegrain_cpu_speed=512 and cpu_speed=2 is equal finegrain_cpu_speed=1024, etc..

The lower is the number, the faster is CPU and slower chip emulation. If you have still lags on your Sam, you have to increase the numbers.

I tested today older version 0.8.28 with recommended config on my Sam440ep-flex 733MHz>

+: sound is not lagging
-: CPU is slow - speed=68000/real
-: gfx is slow - no SDL+Picasso

From my point of view this version also not ideal.
And I prefer strategy games, so sound is not impotant for me

What we can do is experiment more with last JIT-1.0.0 SDL version and try the slowest settings for JIT compiller - i.e. 68020 and try to adjust cpu_speed and finegrain_cpu_speed settings.

Thanks for above, lots of good info. I tried the same with 360p, mp4 and mp3 and results were pretty good, just not sure how good are for SAM. Here are the settings:

360p_MPEG4_MP3

There are lots of compression artefacts flying around, if this is a movie, not sure how pleasant would be to watch it, but it would be watchable. I will definitelly play around with it to find acceptable combination. It would also help if I could use more that one core to compress, it took forever to complete 3 minute long video, average encoding speed was around 6.2 fps, that have nothing to do with the ffmpeg/GUI, of course. Hopefully Steven will release new kernel and soon!


thanks for ffmpeg settings. With this Sam400ep-flex 733 MHz plays videos with 80% CPU utilization.
Of course, video conversion with ffmpegGUi on Sam is terribly slow ( from HD H.264: speed 0.08x ) but X1000 made the job perfectly.

@Cageman
Last PCI are HD 7350 = 5450 or 4350. All of them are real PCIe with integrated PCI-PCIe bridge.
All this are supported with driver RadeonHD v3.7, but have no VA accelaration.

Southern Island cards (HD77xx, R9xxx) is the best choice, unfortunatelly RadeonHD v5. ( with video acceleration ) is now only for X5000, X1000 and Sam460. There is no Sam440 version.
So we need a little bit resource-undemanding codec ))

@AmigaOldskooler

With my 733 MHz Sam440ep-flex version I had this mplayer benchmark:
Serenity-HDDVDTrailer.mp4, 1280x720 pix, codec H.264, real length 139 sec:

With fastest gfx R9270X: 311 sec.
I.e. 733 MHz Sam is 2.25x slower than needed to play HD video without framedrops.
And it means, that Sam should play your mp4 640x360 video - it has 4x lesser resolution.
I can test it next week in real.

In any case, I also interested in question which video format is best ( i.e. less cpu consuming ) for Sam.

Of course, RadeonHD v5 with Video Acceleration support will be great here.
