If I told you that yesterday I booted to the Live CD no less than 5 times and checked the about MorphOS to make sure it read v. 3.15 (it did) with the First Boot screen never appearing, you probably wouldn't believe me. So, I won't mention it.
Hehe, maybe it loaded boot.img from the CD, but then for some reason booted the system from HD? That would give you 3.15 in the About window, even though the actual system would have been booted from the HD (you could check where the SYS: assign goes then).Quote:
Today, however, just as you said, I booted to the same disk again, the first thing appeared was the keyboard selector and right after that, FirstFlight. Upgrading went smoothly.
Good, and indeed there should also be the keybaord selector when booting from the installation media.Quote:
However, I've another issue. In testing the now installed 3.15, I changed the keyboard layout to Dvorak and OWB locked up, so I rebooted. Now all I get is a white screen with the Ambient Screen bar at the top. The mouse will move but clicks have no effect. I tried re-installing the update but that had no effect.
You didn't happen to copy/install any 3rd party screenbar modules before the reboot? Or do you have them from earlier installation in SYS:Classes/Screenbar/
In any case if you get problems with booting, I usually start hunting it down by disabling WBStartup directory, S:user-startup, and S:user-network-startup (rename them to some other name temporarily), and if that doesn't help, then the same for sys:prefs/env-archive.
