So, simply copying the AmigaOS bootloader to :L doesn't trigger the hyperbootloader to chain-load it. Is there a way to configure the MorphOS bootloader? I looked in the HDConfig tool (the edit bootloader option sounds promising) but found nothing helpful.
Hyperbootloader automatically lists all found RDB partitions that are marked as bootable
and don't have the do not mount
flag set, and which use a supported filesystem (ie, FFS (DOS3
) or SFS (SFS\0
)) as options to boot from. No configuration is necessary.
If Hyperbootloader doesn't list the partition containing :l/slb_v2.
as a boot option, then it is either on a partition using an unsupported filesystem, the partition is not marked as bootable, the partition is marked as do not mount
or for one reason or another, the disk can't be read by U-Boot at all, with the latter option being unlikely.
When Hyperbootloader lists your boot options, press the key on your keyboard corresponding to the partition you want to boot from. Here's the output of Hyperbootloader on my system here:
MorphOS boot loader version 1.10
Select a boot partition:
* 1. DH0: (boot priority 1)
2. DH1: (boot priority -3)
3. DH3: (boot priority 0)
By default it will boot from DH0:, but if I want it to boot from DH1: instead, I have to press the 2 key on the keyboard when presented with this prompt.
