Hi, Despartely wanting to get MorphOS 1.4.5 running on my A1200 but I've got the infamous black screen of death. I'm getting past the first reset I think, then the screen goes blank with its monitor indictor light still green. After a few seconds the monitor light blinks orange. I've waited more than a minute after that, but nothing further happens. My PPC card is 603+ 240 / 060/50. My hard drive and CD ROM are on the BlizzPPC.device. I have also tried booting from a Compact flash card connected to the motherboard IDE, but get the same result. To keep things simple I've tried to boot without the kickstart. I've tried formating the partitions with OS3.1 & with SFS. I'm not sure if I need to do anything with the "$" symbols in the startup. Grateful for any guidance.
After reading a previous post about someone's card working fine under OS 3.9, I thought I should recheck that the PPC chip is still working. I installed some PPC friendly programmes (fxPaint & fxScan). The computer crashes nearly straight away when the programmes are launched. This was odd because on a previous set up I was impressed at how well the machine was running with these programmes. Is there any way I can confirm that the card is good or not before persevering with MorphOS 1.4.5?
