Amithlon booting AmigaOS 3.1.4

Just booted the system off the latest Kickstart 3.1.4 and Workbench 3.1.4.  Definitely a bit of effort involved but it works.

I replaced  the kickstart in smallird.gz with the A2000 3.1.4 Kickstart and installed WB 3.1.4 in WinUAE to give me the files for setting it up on a partition in Amithlon.  Compressing the new sys: partition to an .lha and then uncompressing that on a volume on my Amithlon I was able to boot off Kickstart 3.1.4 and Workbench 3.1.4.  I will continue to experiment with it and see how it compares with 3.9.  I have a lot to setup/configure still…..    

One thought on “Amithlon booting AmigaOS 3.1.4”

  1. Be aware that the new Kickstart 3.1.4 contains battmem.resource and battclock.resource that are not compatible with Amithlon. Your system will no longer be able to save time and will revert to 12:00 AM, January 1, 1978 on every boot/reboot.

    The only way around this is to build your own 3.1.4 kickstart with those files removed from the ROM and allow Amithlon to inject it’s own (that are also stored in bigird.gz/smallird.gz along with the kickstart “shape.rom”).
