Amiga Forever 5 / Amiga OS 3.9
« on: March 19, 2003, 05:57:54 PM »
I have AF 5.0 running on a Win2k PC (my old Amiga died on me..so I have this now..until I can get a new system). If I purchase OS 3.9, will I be able to upgrade the OS to that..or will it only run on Amiga hardware. Just wanted to be sure before I get the OS, thanks.

Yes it is possible to install OS3.9 on the WinUAE proveded in AmigaForever 5.0.  There are some special instructions that you should follow.  These instructions can be found on Cloanto's FAQ page.

Yes 3.9 and the boing bag updates work fine under UAE. if your interested in AmigaOS on x86 i recommend you get Amithlon.

What I found simplest to do was to run the regular install on a real Amiga--that was hard enough!--and make the recomended changes--mainly, to the SetPatch command, and making sure that the old devs:system-config(or whatever it's called) file was renamed to s-c.bak until I could test it (some can crash the system, big time, including the one I use on my real Amiga), then just compress everything into one file that can keep the files Amiga atributes, copy it over with AExplorer, dump it into a medium sized hardfile--2-3 hundred megs should do for 3.9, with plenty of spare room--set a test configuration in the GUI, boot--and pray.3.9 worked first time, but 3.5 took almost a week to debug.... :-o

There is no problem at all installing OS3.9 on WinUAE. You can install it directly from CD, even without the need to have another version of AmigaOS running before. What you should do first is to upgrade AF to version 5.1 (WinUAE Version 0.8.22). Then follow these instructions: http://home.t-online.de/home/thomas-rapp/os39uae.html

Bye,
Thomas
