The names of the partitions (device names or volume names) are not important, they are just names. The main thing is that you need to have amigaboot.of residing somewhere where it can be read by the CFE, which can only read FFS (and FAT) partitions. You tell CFE where to find amigaboot.of in the boot command. E.g. the definition quoted earlier by xenic:ddni wrote:On my x1000, I have BHD0, but in media toolbox it is listed as not Automount and not Bootable.
My Amigaboot.of is in DH0: which is an SFS/02 filesystem.
I am confused now as above it says DH0: must be FFS to boot?
- Code: Select all
MENU_0_COMMAND=setenv amigaboot_quiet Y; boot -fs=amigafs ide0.0:amigaboot.of
So, ddni, if you have the same command line in CFE, your first partition must a) be FFS, b) contain an amigaboot.of file. And that is the one being used, regardless of which versions of it you may have on other partitions, such as your DH0: (which consequently cannot be the first partition on the disk - you can check that with Media Toolbox if you doubt it).
From the path given for each module in the kicklayout file in the config section you choose to boot. If you have set the CFE variable boot_config to the name of a config (its LABEL line), then that is the config being loaded, otherwise it will be the first (or only) one in your Kicklayout file (or the first Kicklayout file found).Where does Kickstart load from?
