AmigaOS 1.3 on the Vampire
Booting from IDE
The Kickstart 1.3 ROM does not contain a
scsi.device driver, so it can't boot from a storage device connected to the IDE interface. There is, however, a patch called kick13scsipatch on Aminet, that allows you to extract the
scsi.device from Kickstart 3.x and inject it into Kickstart 1.3. This “injection” is achieved by bundling a patched
scsi.device inside a 256 KB “extended ROM” and appending it to a patched version of the original Kickstart 1.3 ROM.
The detailed instructions are included in the program's archive. But please note the following:
- After you complete the creation of an “extended ROM”, you do not need to merge (
join) it together with the (patched) Kickstart 1.3 ROM. You can simply supply both ROMs to
VampireMap(as described here) to map them side-by-side.
- In order to boot successfully, you need to make sure you have a drive connected that will actually be 1.3-compatible.
- When working on the creation of an “extended ROM”, if you choose to build your own “extended ROM” using Remus, you can refer to the detailed steps below:
Start Remus and enter the “Settings” tab. Specify a $F80000 ROM type but set the size to 256 KB, and set “Image type” to “Normal”.
In the next step, put a “ROM header” first into the ROM contents list. You will find a suitable ROM header in the Remus distribution, as well as the kick13scsipatch archive. The second module you need to add is the patched
scsi.device itself. Save your project, compile a ROM image and that's it.
(Note: Please don't mind the “FC” file name suffix to “ROMHeader” in the example picture.)
