    Hello,

    I found this issue with my LG DVD Rom which I usually used to install MorphOS. It was the first time I had to burn a DVD from the MorphOS iso which is over 700 MB and it can work fine on my Mini but not on my Pegasos 1. I plug an USB Samsumg DVD Writer on my Pegasos 1 and I was able to see the Morphos icon, but I guess I need to boot from a PATA interface!

    I notice that my LG DVD Rom can read almost any other DVDs and it failed only with a DVD Movie.
    Should I try with another PATA DVD reader or what?

    Sorry when I tried to burn Morphosboot on a CD-RW an I had an error there wasn't enough space and so I used a DVD-RW but later on I realise there were only about 300 MB data... now I burn it on a new CD-RW succesfully.

    Anyway I realise a bug hardware on my Pegasus 1 after I did many try changing cables and using DVD readers/writers: if I put one of them as slave in both primary and secondary channels Morphos can't reconise them (in Mount I can see only ide.device 0 which is my HD) and create conflict even on the secondary master. I changed also power supply but no way. To avoid problem I should use HD as master on the first channel and a DVD reader or writer as master in the secondary channel: this is the only one config which works. I guess this is an unfamous Articia S bug which April 2 didn't fixed properly at least on my mainboard. But Apil 2 something is doing cause my mainboard bus is 100 MHz instead of 133 MHz :(
    If I'm not the only one with this kind of bug on Pegasos 1 the book of pegasos might be updated.
