Nice looking environment. Is the AmiKit version on this the same as the latest update on Amiga Forever?

Of course not. This is the newest AmiKit 7 (alias 1.7.0) while the latest update on Amiga Forever (or everywhere else) is 1.6.7.

Free AmiKit 7 full & update archives will be available soon. This means any older version (including the one on Amiga Forever) will gets updated too.

Looks good. Got one question.... does this work on an Intel Mac or not? The text seems to say it does but then later seems to say it does not. Please clear it up for me. Thanks!

I don't own an Intel Mac any more, but if they can't boot from the USB key, I would guess that AmiKit CAN'T boot like intended on other PC's. If the Intel Macs allow booting from USB, I would guess that it should work.

The text says that the emulation will work on both Intel and PPC MacOSX machines, but the self booting into the light weight Linux distro might not work. Does that make any sense?

@All

just read what amikit writes..

amikit package support all major os while booting does not..


from amikit on amigans:

AmiKit USB Flash Disk boots into special Linux environment, called AmiPUP, where AmiKit 7 is pre-installed. AmiKit runs under E-UAE emulation there.

AmiPUP is a very small lightweight “live boot” Linux system built on the Slacko Puppy Linux distro and is customized to look like an Amiga.

AmiPUP works with almost any x86 computer (not including Macs) that can boot from CD or USB.

At boot, AmiPUP loads EVERYTHING into RAM, so all applications load blazing fast! Changes can be saved to the USB or multi-session CD boot device (or not at all). The host system is never touched.

AmiKit DOES WORK on Mac, of course, including Mavericks. It is supplied as .dmg installer. This means you have to boot your Mac OS X first and then install & run AmiKit .

AmiPUP is a different story. It is an independent bootable Linux environment where AmiKit is pre-installed. This means the computer boots into AmiPUP directly. No other host OS is required. While AmiPUP works with almost any x86 computer, it does not work with Macs. So, unfortunately, you cannot use AmiPUP to boot your Mac.

Anyway, the AmiKit USB flash disks contains AmiKit .dmg installer for Mac (as well as for other platforms) and bootable AmiPUP too (which, like I said, doesn't work with Macs).

Here's a video of USB flash disk botting into AmiPUP + AmiKit: http://youtu.be/zMpHC8saGew

Is Amiga kickstart included ? If so which version ? Or is it based on AROS ? What about workbench ?

I didn't see information about that.

Thank you all for your interest, questions and support. It's really amazing!

AmiPUP boots into Linux (which is customized to look like an Amiga, by the way). AmiPUP is Linux, actually. Then you double click the AmiKit icon there and that's it. See the link to video in my previous post. Maybe it is possible to run AmiKit automatically, somehow, so it looks like it boots into AmiKit directly. Maybe in next update :)

No. Amiga ROM Kickstart is required as well as Amiga OS 3.5 or 3.9.

Many thanks for your order and support! Expect your bootable flash disk to arrive within the next week. Maybe later if you're outside of EU. "Patience you must have my young padawan"

@AmiKit.

If ROMS are needed do they need to be copied to the stick before it can boot and work?

No ROM is needed to boot the flash disk. Look at the video in one of my previous posts. It explains it all.

Very amiga unfriendly. Brain dead idea doing Amiga related things (kind of) that are not accessible via Amigas.

Other than that... I might try that stick thingy.

(just removed PUPPY from all my low end HW as it's too bloated. FYI: minimum RAM amount is 1GB for any half sane use etc...)

I understand. On the other hand the AmiKit is about Amiga emulation on other computers/phones/tablets. And the website works there. This way it makes sense to me. I think the complaint should be addressed to the developers of Amiga browsers instead.
