Wow. I'm having the same issue... using AMIKIT 1.5, Amiga Forever 2009, WinUAE 1.61
Amikit gets to the point where it asks for the Amiga Forever CD, finds it and then says installing system Please Wait.
That's as far as I get.
- applied the Amiga Forever patch listed in the thread above. Tried reconfiguring WinUAE. When I did I noticed the power light blinking the GUru status (3 blinks...talk about perfect hardware emulation). I thought the Guru light might be from rediculous adjustments I made to the WinUAE settings, so I re set them.
Un-installed Amikit, installed latest WinUAE, re-installed Amikit. No dice.
The setup for Amikit does recognize the CD/DVD drive - it blinks when it searches for the Amiga Forever disc. That's the last time the CD (drive) blinks. The emulator however seems to want to ping the CD ( blink the blue light occasionally, but that's all it ever does?
