View Full Version : OS4 Install
06-20-2005, 08:44 AM
I have finally managed to update my U-Boot just the other week.
I have followed the OS4 installation guide found on the website.
Below is section 3:
Insert the AmigaOS4.0 Developer pre-release CD in your CDROM drive. At the UBoot "]" prompt type:
setenv boot1 cdrom
You will notice the AmigaOS4.0 kernel modules will begin loading from the Developer pre-release CD.
It should look like this:-
Once the kernel (kickstart) has loaded, your screen will go blank and your monitor may go onto standby.
The CD drive is still being accessed at this point, after about one minute you will be presented with a welcome message on a White background.
It shows that the kickstart is loading, but when it comes to section 4, my screen goes blank, then comes back on with what looks like the workbench screen but it all fuzzy and difficult to make out - I should have the Welcom to OS4 requester but don't.

What version of the Prerelease are you running? The original, or Update #1?
Are you using a Radeon?
Are you using the March 2005 UBoot?

I'm using the original pre-release of OS4.
Yes I'm using a Radeon.
And no I'm using the UBoot update that came with the pre-release.
I have no clues what to do.

Is that MicroA1?
06-23-2005, 03:36 AM
Just a plain, bog standard AmigaOne XE

Which Radeon card are you using?
The problem might be with your monitor, which can't sync with the (I believe) 640x480 screen. Try to boot the CD with a different monitor plugged in.

Unsure as to which Radeon card is being used.
But have just tried it on another monitor and still it looks like a fuzzy version of the Workbench desktop.
No sign of the Welcome message on a white background, not even a fuzzy version of it.
Please, any other ideas?
I mean I have only just been able to update UBoot after nearly a year of having my AmigaOne.

I don't see this.

I don't understand.
Might be a bit far for you to travel but why not come along to our usergroup meeting this Saturday? I'd be happy to see if we can help...
There were a couple of people that had trouble with their radeons in the beginning, the display had some kind of heatwaves all over the screen which made it nearly impossible to see things, you might find more info on their experience and solutions over at amigaworld.net but if you have an additional graphics card you might have a quicker solution with that one ?
06-23-2005, 10:24 AM
Don't have any other graphics card, is there another way to correct this heatwave effect :-?
I am losing patience and may just go back to using a PEECEE.
I'd rather not have to take such drastic action, but what the heck.
06-23-2005, 10:29 AM
This is the last thing I see before it all goes wrong.
I dont know how they solved it as i never had the same problem (not as severe anyway) but try to search for it...

The Radeon "heat-wave" problem is fixed in a later version of the monitor driver IIRC. Try installing (if you can see!) a later update to OS4 and it should be eliminated...

Go to Hyperion's website and download the Prerelease Update #1 - it's a new ISO image that replaces the original prerelease CD. The Radeon driver that shipped with the original prerelease is extremely buggy, and the heatwave effect is a known problem. It's corrected in update #1. Install from that rather than the original CD.
Once that's done you've got a few more things to do before you have an up-to-date OS4. Report back here if you need help going through them.
I take it your not interested in my offer?
06-24-2005, 06:45 AM
I am interested, but like you said it is a long way to travel.
And on Saturday I work until 11.45, so making it would be difficult (it would take me 1 and a half hours to get there.
Thanks but sorry not this time :-(

Are there any other places it is possible to get the UBoot 1.1.1 ISO from?
If there is please let me know.
Thank you. :-(
06-25-2005, 05:17 AM
I have found the ISO and copies onto a CD on my PC.
I have opened UBoot 1.0.0.
Where do I go from here :-?
08-12-2005, 04:57 AM
I managed to download the ISO and burnt it to a CD, but how to I get it on my AmigaOne?
Do I have to get it on through Linux or through the BIOS?
Please help as I no nearer to solving the problem.
I have managed to upgrade UBoot to version 1.1.1., but still when it comes to installing OS4 I get the heatwave effect and can't see what I am doing.
