The Age old getting MOS to strat on a BPPC
  • Just looking around

    Posts: 3 from 2008/2/6
    I have a A1200 with BPPC 200mhz 040 25mhz with ZorroIV with CV64/3d, a 4 way buffered IDE with 20gb HDD and CDROM. I'm trying to install MOS and have read many posts on how to get it working but to no avail. I've tried using a FFS partition and am using a SFS 1.84 partition at the moment. I normally have 256Mb of RAM but have reduced it to 128mb i've tried idehack, with rom and without rom with colon and without but i still only get so far which is the startup works and resets but i then just get the black screen. I've not been able to boot from CD either. i can't connect to a PC as i don't have the cables. Can anyone help?? this is my current startup-sequence..

    ;
    ; This is the MorphOS loader startup-sequence. If you set the MorphOS partition as bootable,
    ; this file would cause MorphOS to get loaded on boot automaticly.
    ;
    ; By default MorphOS boots without using the ROM contents of your Amiga. If you wish to
    ; make it use the kickstart contents (to be able to use trackdisk.device for example)
    ; please follow those steps:
    ;
    ; 1) Check if you have a correct kickstart file:
    ; The Kickstart version required are:
    ; Amiga4000/4000T/3000 - 40.68 or 40.70
    ; Amiga1200 - 40.68
    ; Is is advised that you use the unpatched ROM files
    ;
    ; 2) Move or delete fakerom.elf from boot/extmoudles
    ;
    ; 3) Change the kickstart variable, remember to tune the file path

    set kickstart "kickstart=DH1:Devs/ROM3.1"
    ;set kickstart "nokickstart"

    ; Bootdevice can be used to specify the MorphOS partition if you have more than one
    ; bootable partition and the MorphOS one doesn't have the highest boot priority. Remember
    ; to use partition names, not volume names! This option requires the 'bootdevice' keyword
    ; like in the example below:
    set bootdevice "bootdevice=DH1:"
    ; Leave the var blank if you want to boot from the default boot partition!

    ;set bootdevice ""

    ; The resetlevel and delay variables are there for you to tweak if MorphOS startup doesn't
    ; reboot the machine properly after loading MorphOS files.
    ;
    ; The possible resetlevel values are:
    ; 0 exec/coldreboot (System Reboot)
    ; 1 MMU switch off + normal reset in chipram (default)
    ; 2 MMU switch off + double reset in chipram
    ; 3 MMU switch off + Cyberstorm HW Reset in chipram
    ; 4 for (;;);..waiting for manual reset by your hands:-)
    ; 5 MMU switch off + normal reset in fastram
    ; 6 MMU switch off + double reset in fastram
    ; 7 MMU switch off + Cyberstorm HW Reset in fastram
    ;
    ; NOTE: most common setting for BlizzardPPC is resetlevel 1 and 5 for CyberStormPPC!

    set resetlevel 1
    set delay 1

    ; Load the MorphOS loader!

    cd DH1:boot
    startup hal=roms/hal.com1 kernel=roms/kernel.com1 abox=roms/abox2.com1 module=roms/module.com1.idehack resetlevel=$resetlevel ramdebug verbose debug EDebugFlags="NoLogServer NoLogWindow" sumkick disableled delay=$delay extmodules=extmodules/#? $bootdevice $kickstart

    is your HD in the 4 way buffered IDE first channel?

    How big is the MOS partition?

    Have you deleted the fakerom.elf file from Boot/extmodules/ ?

    then change theese linnes with the default one:

    set kickstart "kickstart=Devs:ROM3.1"

    cd sys:boot

    and try someone that could send you a previous Boot/module.com1

    The HDD is on the first channel i.e scsi unit 0.
    The MOS partition is 2GB
    Fakerom has been deleted.
    I've tried the default lines and module.com1

    Hi there!

    >> I have a A1200 with BPPC 200mhz 040 25mhz with ZorroIV with
    >> CV64/3d

    Amazing... MorphOS is the first telepathic OS! I was planning to
    report the same issue yesterday. I browsed the forums just to
    make sure nobody already discussed that and worked out a solution
    and -puff!- it magically appeared...

    ...so here come my 2 cents:

    I have (actually had for a while ;-) MorhpOS running on a BPPC
    240/050 with SCSI. I have both a Phase5 [rev. 0] and a DCE BPPC
    and -contrary to some urban legends- both works fine with
    MorphOS Powerup on my GRex + Voodoo3. It's stable and works
    both from the SCSI HD (on the BPPC) and from the IDE HD frome
    the Amiga mobo. I run it on both a 1D.4 and a 2B and it's pleasant
    and stable on both.

    Now, since AmigaOS4 is out and there is no grex support I wanted
    to have a setup that let me use both OS4 and MorhpOS so I run this
    experiment:

    I took one of my MorphOS boxes and replaced the G-REX +
    Voodoo3 with a Micronik Zorro II busboard + CV64/3D. OS 3.9
    and 4.0 worked flawlessly on that setup (well OS 3.9 already was
    before ;-), but when I tried to run MorphOS I had a cold shower...

    ...MorphOS does not start anymore (yeah, black screen, you guess
    it). Keep in mind that MorphOS worked perfectly before, the only 2
    variables changed were : grex -> micronik Z2 busboard , voodoo3
    -> CV64/3D

    I even tried with another Zorro II busboard (the ZorroIV that our
    MorphOS friend Buleste is using) and I had the same experience:

    *** the CVision3D.Z2 68K module locks with an "Exception 3"
    [Store to a not existing Page] during PPC_ColdBoot_603e ***

    If you replace it with the .Z3 module you can see that CVision3D.Z2
    is the faulty part cause the initilization will go one step forward, you
    will see a flash on the screen, and then (I am debugging from
    serial) you will read:

    /*

    Hello, Ambient here. I couldn't open a screen so I'm trying to
    communicate through the serial port. Hopefully someone can see
    this.

    Please check the following:
    - working and supported graphics card
    - latest version of the boot.img kernel
    - booting from the correct device
    - driver installed in mossys:devs/monitors

    */

    Which is expected cause it fails to initialize the Zorro III bus, but
    the module at least does not generate an "Exception 3" loop.

    Note, that as soon as I replaced Grex + Voodoo3 back, Morphos was
    very happy to boot again ;-)

    My hunch is that something was messed up in hal.com1, when they
    fixed the Zorro III initialization to get CV64/3D work on Zorro III
    Amigas, but broke the Zorro II version... IIRC the Zorro III version
    had a similar issue with a failure in correctly mapping memory
    pages.

    If somebody has an older (or newer) version of hal.com1 that has
    the correct support for CV64/3D or a version of CVision3D.Z2 that is
    supposed to work with MorphOS 1.4.5 I will be more than glad to
    try it.

    Attached is 1 loop (cause it will keep printing the same series of
    messages over and over) of serial debug where you can see what
    CVision3D.Z2 is messing up.

    I hope some MorphOS guru out there can help us!

    Thanks.

    Best Regards,
    -max lingua

    i'm not an CV3D user but AFAIK you have to rename the driver as

    CVision3D (along its icon)

    yep ... just received your mail! :-)

    confirmed!

    87776 Jan 3 08:20 CVision3D.Z3
    5940 Aug 10 2005 CVision3D.info

    as you can see the info have the correct filename hence your using a driver with a name and its info with another

    @sunmax

    your problem is that some of the defined screenmodes can't be shown with the CV3D.

    I had a similar problem when I downgraded from PicassoIV to CV64, as the gfx chip is not capable of showing all screenmodes. You could try to connect your g-rex again, choose 640x480@60hz as ambient screenmode save, and connect your CV3D again.

    Thanks for your hint.

    >> I had a similar problem when I downgraded from PicassoIV
    >> to CV64

    Was it causing a: Exception 3 - Store to a not existing Page ?

    Shouldn't MorphOS fail in a more graceful way and just
    say: mode not supported? ;-)

    Which is actually what happens if you try to replace
    CVision3D with CVision3D.Z3 (instead of Z2) on A1200
    + Zorro2 busboard:

    "Hello, Ambient here. I couldn't open a screen..."

    I am going to definitely try your suggestion, it could
    take a while cause to reopen a Micronik tower and
    safely remove all the precious Amiga parts twice
    (grex in, grex out once again) it's not an easy task!

    In the meanwhile, is there a way I could hexedit the
    ambient prefs? Or could somebody just send me
    a safe config file with sensible screen mode for CV3D
    for me to test before the week-end? Thanks a lot!

    Is there a way to force a mode from "startup" ?

    btw: should I chaneg something in the CVision3D.info too?
    the one that comes with MorphOS 1.4.5 PowerUP has :

    BITMAPCACHE=YES
    PACKED24=NO
    BOOTLOGO=YES
    SCROLLMASK=NO

    Is thak OK?

    @Buleste

    Did you try Crumb suggestion too?

    How do people that just have a Zorro2 + CV3D setup
    (and no g-rex, etc.) setup sort it out? Thanks!

    Ciao,

    After the first reset, does the hard disk start to load things for some seconds or you just get a black screen with no HD activity?

    Hi there!

    @Framiga

    Ciao!

    >> are you really saying thats ok having in MOSSYS:Devs/Monitors/
    >> such a
    >>
    >> CVision3D.Z2
    >> CVision3D.info

    Yep,

    at least for me MorphOS is picking the correct one depending on
    the Zorro bus detected. You can see that this is the case cause
    if you rename "CVision3D.Z2" to "CVision3D" you get the same
    identical Exception 3 error, but for the drv name cause it's now
    trying to load "CVision3D". The priority is

    1 - "CVision3D" (if available)
    2 - "CVision3D.Z2" or "CVision3D.Z3" (depending on the bus)

    Because of this you can fool MorphOS to try to use the Z3 one
    on a Z2 box by renaming CVision3D.Z3 to CVision3D, not
    very useful but at least you get Ambient "talking" to you ;-)
    See my serial debug.


    @AmigaMancer

    It does spin the HD and load some data after the first reset,
    this is proved by:

    a) I can hear it [not very useful unless you are next to me]

    b) The Exception (did you see my serial debug) happens
    -after- PPC_ColdBoot_603e which is succesful,
    cause what fails is running CVision3D.Z2 and
    logically this could not happen if the system did
    not load it and try to execute it after the reboot, no?

    I hope somebody can provide me with a CVision3D
    friendly Ambient config/prefs file (see Crumb hint),
    cause it's a huge task to open and rebuild the Micronik
    tower twice just to create that file. Thanks!

    Anybody out there?

    Thanks,
    -max
