 + 
 +EmuTOS can be run on the Amiga by booting it from a floppy disk, or by using it as a Kickstart ROM replacement. ​ You can download the desired EmuTOS version from [[https://​sourceforge.net/​projects/​emutos/​files/​emutos/​|this page]]. ​ (The archive name should start with "​emutos-amiga-"​.) 
 + 
 +Please see [[:​system_tools:​kickstarts|Installing Kickstarts]] for using an EmuTOS ROM as a Kickstart replacement on the Vampire. 
 + 
 +  * In a Vampire accelerator board connected to a classic Amiga, the Core already contains an EmuTOS ROM, in addition to the Amiga Kickstart ROM.  If you hold down the joystick fire button during power-on, the Vampire will start the Core's EmuTOS instead of the Amiga Kickstart. 
 + 
 +On starting, EmuTOS will scan and mount all Atari-compatible partitions on IDE storage devices and SD cards, and will launch the GEM desktop environment. ​ System-friendly Atari TOS software should run well.  If a program bypasses the operating system to obtain access to the Atari hardware, it will fail.  To run such programs, you need an Atari emulator like the ones listed on [[:​software_library:​emulation:​computers|this page]]. 
 + 
 +EmuTOS can be used as a stub to launch [[..freemint:​|FreeMiNT]],​ a much more powerful Atari operating system that can run modern Atari software.
