AmigaOne X1000 booting AmigaOS4.1 Update 3
« on: August 28, 2011, 10:02:20 AM »
News from TrevorDick of A-Eon

Chris Follett, AmigaKit's lead technician, has produced a quick video of the AmigaOne X1000 booting to AmigaOS4.1 Update 3. Chris apologized for the quality, but he only had time to run off a quick video in between setting up and testing Nemo 2.1 motherboards. He has promised to produce another video showing AmigaOS4 running various demos when he has more time.

AmigaOS4.1 Update 3 booting on AmigaOne X1000

Nice effort and despite I'm not interested, it's a nice step for NG lovers :) /thumbsup
Congratz to FOL for the vid and I hope for more videos soon.

P.S. 1min boot (excluding OS selection) is a bit weird though

Not exactly fast at booting, is warm boot quicker?

42 seconds not quick enough for you? Damn quick compared to my AMD 4800X2 with Vista.

Nope, that's really really slow. I can only assume it's due to debug, missing driver support or something of that sort.

But as they say, "you can only make the first impression once".

LMAO, that's a fair comment. Maybe it is due to debugging, I'm sure time will tell, serial debugging is enabled on the video.
It's a shame more people don't shout at Microsoft about boot times.

42 seconds? Looks more like more than a minute. I don't have any amigoid systems booting that slow, no. What is Vista?

Vista? If you've never heard of it you shouldn't ask, it will only taint your soul and in the end the knowledge of it will drag you screaming into hell. Trust me, pretend you never saw it.

I'll wait and see what the boot times are like without the debugging going on before I get dismayed. SAM boots fast, no reason that X1000 shouldn't as far as I know. Maybe Trevor will post another video soon, or at least post on this forum to let us know what sort of boot times to expect without the debug. That would be awfully nice of him......Trevor... are you reading this?

I would guess that the video was posted purely to satisfy the curiosity of those waiting for any news at all the hardware. I don't think anybody is under any illusion that what is shown exactly represents the real potential of the system.

Wow, that was underwhelming, almost painful to watch. The top of the line, brand spanking new, uber expensive A1X1K trundling along like an underspecd PC fresh off the discount rack from a department store somewhere.

42 seconds even if not the final result is nothing compared to my 2ghz Intel Mac Mini which was recently upgraded to Mac OS X Lion (something which I regret atm, so slow and buggy - bad Apple).  I went from around 1 minute under Snow Leopard to over 2 minutes with Lion.

Considering 4.1 u2 takes 20-30 to boot cold on a SAM 460 its fine to assume the new Amiga running u3 will pretty much take the same amount of time.

My Win 7 box boots faster than this (and that can hardly be confused with a lean Amigoid system) but I suspect the poor speed is because of an unfinished state of the X1000/OS4.1.3 combo and that things will improve. As a reference, booting MorphOS on a Mac Mini is very close to instant after the firmware setup is finished; you see the blue butterfly splash screen for a second or so (you have hardly time to see what it is), and then it's done! :)

I suppose this is what they are about to ship to the paying "beta testers", but this X1000/OS4.1.3 combo doesn't quite seem to have reached beta stage yet, there seems to be some important development left still...?
MorphOS is Amiga done right! :)

The X1000s are all beta-test machines. That means they will be running the debug kernel, with serial debugging, and hence not representative in any way of the final version. Judging anything from a beta-test quick video is unfair.

Comparing the boot-time of this machine to a released PC is misguided at best.....

I don't know about y'all, but if I just spent a few hundred thousand dollars and 2 years of time building "the dream machine", I wouldn't have videos of the thing running like crap floating around. If they don't have a release build that can up and boot quickly by now, they're in worse shape than I thought.
