OS4 won't boot
Just popping in

Just did a clean install of OS4 final.

(Actually tried a few times).

Everything seem to work fine, but when booting again from the fresh-install it loads all modules etc, then screen is black.

Any idea what may cause this?

(using a LCD monitor now, but guess that shouldn't cause this behaviour, have chosen 800x600 @ 60 Hz to be sure on the last install I did...:( )

once the kickstart modules are loaded hold down scroll lock or both mouse buttons, do you get early boot menu up.

Could be down to the addnetinterface line in the startup-sequence. It will time out eventually.

DiskImage can do that, just tried it and working

Unpack it anywhere
Assign Devs: "" your-diskimage-drawer
Double Click on DI2 (that?s the one for pure AmigaDos disks
Start DiskImageCtrl
Click on Load image (for DI2, you?ll see it at the right side,
should be the 3rd entry from above)
Choose your .adf and off you go

Boot from the CD, and change the tooltypes of devs/monitors/radeon on your boot partition.

You will find one reads interrupt=yes. change this to interrupt=no and reboot.

Another option is to boot with no startup and do this:

set echo on
execute s:startup-sequence


that will print every command to the shell so you can see where it's failing.

Hi Mawrick,

What is it that you had to do to get it working?

Me, using AOS4 update 4, I have the problem of it won't boot for 3 to 7+ minutes. There's a black screen, and it seems as though nothing is happeneing. The HD isn't on.


Could you recreate the problem, and wait 8 minutes, and see if it boots up somewhere around that amount of time.

Tried to replicate the error, but then I won't get screen, even waiting 30 minutes.

The only thing I did was to go into DEVS/MONITORS and edit icon information of Radeon Icon, and change the tool type saying Interrupt=Yes to Interrupt=No

Hi Mawrick,


Thanks for explaining what was behind your being stuck, and trying it out (to see if my problem might have been the same).

I obviously have some other problem then.

My A1 XE goes through to select linux or AOS, after I pick AOS, does a bunch more things then has a black screen, for, like I said 3 to 7 minutes, then finally boots up. No idea why.

Could be device timeout? Check your IDE port settings in U-Boot. If you can, hook a null modem cable up and see what you get before the delay.

What if you press the "scroll lock" key just when the progress bar finish loading the kickstart module (I think it was), to get to the early startup-screen.

Then chose to boot without startup-sequence.

type in loadwb into the shell, if the machine loaded faster then I guess it'l be something in your startup-sequence causing it to hang, maybe things like Chris pointed out.

Hope you get it working.

regards
