Announcement   Announcement : AmigaSYS 3 Plus Live 07 for USB!
   posted by Dary on 21-Nov-2007 23:26:58 (2711 reads)
2007.11.22 - AmigaSYS 3 Live 07 for USB relesed!

AmigaSYS 3 Live 07 for USB

Newest version goes USB
If you never heard of AmigaSYS live, please read the 'older versions' chapter below.
I have decided that it would be much nicer if one had a bootable AmigaSYS on a USB stick instead of having to boot from a separate CD. Here are some pros and cons:


PROS:
Takes less space to take with you.
USB sticks/drive are becomming very affordable
CD's damage more easily

CONS:
Not all computer can boot from a USB drive
Not everyone has a USB stick big enough

Tell me if there's more...
Requirements and steps to take to get started:
I've made an instrustions movie for those who'd like to see how next steps are done.

Step 1: Pick a USB drive which is at least 512MB! in size and format this drive FAT or FAT32.
Step 2: Copy the extracted Kick Rom file from your Amiga (or use the Cloanto's Kickrom you bought) plus the "Workbench" and "Extra's" disk images (amigaos 3.0 or 3.1) to the freshly formatted USB drive.
Step 3: Burn the ISO file (from download section) onto CD and boot from CD.
Step 4: Follow the instructions, when finished type "restart".
Step 5: Boot the computer from USB and set up the AmigaSYS environment.

Once you're done, it's very easy to boot your customizable AmigaSYS environment on modern PC's!

Can you make it portable too?

So it can be booted from within an OS from the USB stick.

Yes, this is "portable" version of AmigaSYS.

So you can boot into it from Windows ?

Like with these apps here: http://portableapps.com/

(So what I mean is that you don't need to boot from the cd)

You don't need this version to make AmigaSYS 'portable', as long as you don't mind running another OS from USB.

For Linux on USB, see here:
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/
I've personally tried installing Slax on USB, very easy to do:
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/2006/09/20/all-in-one-usb-slaxzip

For WinXP, see here:
http://www.ngine.de/index.jsp?pageid=4176

Once you've installed the host OS and AmigaSYS, you would just need to write a script to boot AmigaSYS on startup, which should be straightforward.

Nice,

but wouldn't it be nicer to have an AmigaSYS Amithlon system on an USBstick. Instead of an Amiga UEA system ?

There is much hardware what Amihlon does not favour. Linux though yes (E-UAE).
