- +
-After powering on the Amiga / Vampire, the Core will map a Kickstart ROM image from an inserted SD card to memory and run the system with it. The mapped Kickstart will survive through soft resets, but will be lost after a hard reset. +
- +
-**Usage:​** +
- +
-  - Make sure the SD card is formatted with the FAT32 filesystem. +
-  - Save the Kickstart ROM image with the filename ''​kick.rom''​ in the root directory of the SD card. +
-  - Insert the SD card before powering on the Amiga / Vampire. +
- +
-Once you confirm that the Kickstart ROM image works as intended, and you want to stay on it going forward, you can flash the ROM image into the Core using method 3. +
- +
-**Advantages:​** +
- +
-  * Useful for testing purposes as it avoids permanent changes to the Core. +
-  * Makes it possible to switch to a different Kickstart **mechanically**,​ without needing access to the OS or a special program. +
- +
-**Disadvantages:​** +
- +
-  * Requires the SD card to be inserted at every hard reset. +
- +
-**Note:** This method does not work on Vampire accelerator boards connected to a classic Amiga yet. +
- +
-==== 3) Running a "​FlashROM"​ program to install the Kickstart ROM image into the Core's flash memory ====+
  
 The ''​VampireFlash''​ tool will flash a Kickstart ROM image from disk into a location in the Core that is reserved for a Kickstart ROM, overwriting the existing Kickstart there. The flashed Kickstart will survive through soft and hard resets. However, a new Core installation will revert the Kickstart to the default one contained in the Core. The ''​VampireFlash''​ tool will flash a Kickstart ROM image from disk into a location in the Core that is reserved for a Kickstart ROM, overwriting the existing Kickstart there.
