Is it possible to install AOS 3.5 or 3.9 on UAE?
because I 've heard about some problems with that...

@StormLord

Yeah, I believe there are some things that make it complicated, but it is possible AFAIK. I haven't done it myself though, I suggest you dig through some of the old threads on here and if you can't find any help, start a new thread, that way people will give your problem more attention.

Yes you can install OS3.9 on UAE
Done it myself allready
All you have to do is buy the original CD
The rest is up to the installer  :-D

I looked yesterday on the net but couldn't find .adf files I need, so I'll try today again. Fingers crossed. :-D ****************CORRECTION***********
I found Workbench 1.3.2 and extras so far

With all due respect, I think that it was right to remove the pointless posts about My windows being bigger than your windows... which really weren't going to help any one.


For the Record, Wine is waaaaaaaay better than any version of windows :-P

Thanx Punk, I did everything you said when i resetted "amiga" the screen turned black, and finally the window opened it said:

Amiga DOS

So, how to start Genesia now, it's in d:\amiga\HDGenesia dir.

Hmm... The boot should have progressed further than you've indicated. Try typing 'dir' at the prompt and tell me what it says.

Also, what are the contents of your d:\amiga\hdgenesia directory? do you have ADFs in there or what...?

GenesiaHD [DIR]:
Gsave [DIR]: 0.A0, 0.dat, 0.nam
Source[DIR]: genesia.asm
Root of directory Genesia HD: Genesia.exoticon, Genesia.glowicon, Genesia.newexot, Genesia.newicon, Genesia.slave, HDpath.inf, install(no extension), install.info, manual(no ext.), manual.info, readme(no ext.), readme.info ;

That's all what dir has.

Maybe i made mistake whilst making HD file in winUAE.
 I chose Hard Dirves tab, Add Hardfile button, Create Hadrfile size 10mb, Create. And that's all, correct me please if I made a mistake.

When I start Workbench 1.3, under the DH0 icon it says: DH0:COPY, so I "made" another HDD, named it DH1, when I started Wb 1.3 it said: empty

Oh, I allmost forgot when it starts copying files he copies 11 of them and then it stops, active (copying) window remains w/o any action, is that normal ?

Ya know its probably easier to go out and buy a copy of AmigaForever, the emu is fully setup with all you need and its just a case of installing whdload and then working out how your gonna get ya games across.

@ anyone who agrees with the above quote

Presumably you find yet another discussion where people whine about different versions of Windows being "totally unstable and no-one should use them" somehow useful and interesting?

I don't know about most people here, but I go to forums such as Amiga.org's to get answers to technical questions, and to help other people out by answering their technical questions.  Discussion might ensue, but I'll only read and contribute to it if it's actually INTERESTING.  Hearing people whine because they have no clue or experience regarding a certain operating system is NOT my idea of interesting.  Apart from the usual guidelines of moderation, I'm trying to keep and increase Amiga.org's accessibility to more than just people who talk at great length about anything off-topic, whether the majority is interested in what they're saying or not.

If you want to whine about Windows, either create a new thread in 'Alternative Operating Systems' where people can make a conscious choice to read it or not (then I won't moderate it in the way I have here), or find another site to post your opinions on.

In short, you choose to come here.  Perhaps you should review that choice if you don't like the status quo.  If you don't think what I'm doing is for the best for Amiga.org, please feel free to email Kees or another staff member.

And on the subject of censorship.  Guess what?  "Censorship" in the way you refer to it happens on Amiga.org and most moderated forums EVERY DAY.  See the posting guidelines of this or any other moderated forum site.  If you don't like them, and a complaint gets you nowhere, then leave.  For the average person who has half a brain, and knows what the meaning and history of the term 'censorship', being that you don't have a grave dug for you specifically because you voiced certain opinions.  It's not about your "God-given right to show your single-figure mental age in public".

Some of this may be conveyed strongly, but is not intended to be a specific personal attack on anyone.  It's just how I feel about this.

@meers

I find myself very shocked at your statements and actions as of late.  Particularly the cries of censorship.  

Saddening to think that you've started to believe the tripe.
