    Hi,
    since I don't have a CD-ROM drive on my A1200 I recently bought a PCMCIA-CF adapter for my Amiga and I would like to test out MOS PowerUp, but I couldn't find a way how to install it from the flash drive.

    Any help would be greatly apreciated.

    Maybe a tutorial :D

    Well I'm a bit confused as the install instruction are "Create a bootable partition and copy all the files from the CD to it. Now launch a text editor and read the instructions in partition:s/startup-sequence to tweak it to meet your needs. The partition may have a low boot priority - remember to set the
    bootdevice option in that case! It is better not to set the MorphOS partition as your default boot partition on the initial install. In order to boot, go to the early startup menu and boot from the MorphOS partition."

    With what tools do I create that bootable partition and how?

    I'm not sure MorphOS handles PCMCIA on PowerUP. I think a ide 2.5'' -> CF converter would be a better choice here.

    As for partitioning, try HDInstTools.

    Just use HDToolbox from your 68k AOS installation and create a partition for MOS. Somewhere there are checkboxes for bootable and automount. Check these on. Also set the bootpri to an appropiate value (b4 your MOS installation runs fine, keep it lower than the 68k system partition, once MOS ran fine I happily set the MOS partition boot pri higher than the 68k partition's pri)
