hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : New AmigaOne firmware available
   posted by EntilZha on 6-Oct-2004 10:25:20 (15878 reads)
Leuwen, Belgium - October 6th 2004.

In preparation for the upcoming update of Amiga OS 4.0, Hyperion Entertainment is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the much improved U-Boot 1.1.1 for AmigaOne SE and XE motherboards.


New features include:

* Support for multiple graphics cards. At this time the last graphics card (usually the AGP card) is used for primary display. Later versions will include an option to choose.
* Support for booting off a Silicon Image 0680 IDE controller. This feature has to be selected manually at the moment, by entering setenv ide sii from the U-Boot shell.
* New CPU support: IBM PowerPC 750GX is now fully supported.
* A problem has been fixed that made the U-Boot environment settings unavailable when rebooting from Linux.
* Support for LBA48 IDE Drivers, i.e. you can now boot off drives that are bigger than 160 GB.
* Support for the new Second-Level Bootloader (that can boot Linux besides AmigaOS), to be distributed with the upcoming AmigaOS 4 update.
* Numerous bug fixes and improvements.

The new U-Boot will be required for the upcoming update of Amiga OS 4.0, to be released shortly to registered AmigaOS 4.0 pre-Release owners.

The download is available in our Downloads section.

So it IS required? I am not really jumping to install it since I do not have a UPS and the power drops a lot sometimes. Maybe I get lucky again.

IIRC it should be a documented standard to build bootable CD-ROMs. Unfortunately, it seems you cannot just put some files on a cd-r and expect it to boot properly on PCs.

By the way, at least on PCs, you need BIOS support to boot from CD: an ElTorito-compliant CD won't boot if there's no such option to set...

Ciao!

I dont know what it is but if you burn the updater .iso to a cd with Nero it works just fine.

Not with me. When I burn with Nero and there after boot my A1 I get the message:

"No real elf image installed as a bootloader"


hmm, I upgraded the bios once, but how did I do it ?

OK I have a CD burner and a floppy drive (MS type) on my A1 and no Linux and none of the above on my MS box.

How do I do it.

Flat: does not seem to work (mountlists don't get mounted)
Trackdos just looks a complete mystery.

MakeCD burns the disks nocely but not as bootable el toritos, at least as far as I can work.

I am absolutely desperate -- someone tell me what to do..

Had a hunch something would happen this week...

Will be upgrading my firmware tonight, hopefully install the new IDE controller tomorrow...and with some luck, the pre-release update by the end of the week...

Second level bootloader, eh? Nice!
