!Boot not booting

Post by mattdy4 » Fri Apr 27, 2018 7:06 am

I'm trying to set up my new hard disc on my 3020. I've copied Uniboot across to the root directory of the hard disc and used *OPT 4,2 (after doing *drive 4 or I get Drive Empty error) but I can't seem to get !Boot to run. I'm trying to get NewLook to boot on startup but unless I go into the Choices/PreDesktop folder NewLook doesn't start.

As well as some decent documentation, anyone have any recommendations on other desktop pimping tools and applications for RO3.11?

I'd do a *STATUS and check that it's set to Boot (rather than No Boot), Filesystem is ADFS and Drive is 4. There may be other relevant settings but those are the ones I can remember off the top of my head!

If they aren't set correctly, the hard drive won't boot on startup. You can set them with:

Code: Select all

*CONFIGURE BOOT
*CONFIGURE FILESYSTEM ADFS
*CONFIGURE DRIVE 4
