My harddrive is the first device (set as master) on the primary IDE port. As per the manual I wiped it and set up DH0 as FFS and DH1 as SFS. I then checked all the boxes on all options after that. Set my language and locale options. The installer then copies the 11 dirs I mentioned before and that's it. Obviously it won't boot because there's a load of files missing. I tried manually copying all the files from the DVD to the harddrive but that didn't work, I assume because the installation needs to be configured in some way.


Well, please proceed like this:

- wipe everything with HDtoolbox or Gparted

- redo installation from scratch. Use SFS filesystem only: there was a mistake in the manual I have corrected in the following days.

- once finished, instead of rebooting, manually copy Development, Extras, Tests and Demos on DH1: (if you haven't set up it, on DH0:)

- open a shell (rAmiga+W) and type in

echo "DH1:Development" >aros:Prefs/env-archive/DEVELPATH
echo "DH1:Extras" >aros:Prefs/env-archive/EXTRASPATH

(you have to use DH0: instead of DH1: if you used a SINGLE partition for both system and work files).

- reboot

I'll investigate on this issue, promised. =)

@Paolone

Tried again just using sfs and all went well
Thanks for the help. I'm really pleased to finally have it installed as it's a very nice package
