got plenty of free HD space, heres quick rundown of whats happening on 2 different PC's.PC1, Asus GL551JW-DS74-HID2 15.6" Laptop with i7 4720HQ 2.6-3.6GHz, 16GB Ram, Nvidia 2GB GTX 960M
Problem here: its the machine ive been using primarily, after Amikit install, get blackscreen/taskfreeze 2-3 times, after that screenmode requester appears, nothing else bad happens, whdload 18x crashes instantly even if you issue "WHDLOAD ?" in newshell for args, it just results in instant software failure, whdload17x is perfectly fine.PC2, Custom Built PC In Loriano Pagni's X500, MSI Z97I with I7-4770S 3.1-3.9GHz,8GB Ram, 2GB DDR5 Zotac Geforce 730
After the issue on PC1, i moved to PC2 to avoid breaking what i already installed, result is that amikit installs, however i get blackscreen/constant task freeze, unlike PC1 where a few restarts fixes it, it just stays black/frozen, if i change emulation to 040 there is utterly zero problems from start to finish, everything installs, screenmode requester appears, workbench appears perfectly and WHDLoad also works perfectly from the start and after every update, also my own games copied over also work perfectly on this install.
My uncle recently bought amikit as well, he installed using OS3.9 (i used 3.5), his cheapo low end amd/ati setup does the same as my PC2 setup, it locks up after install and wont show the screenmode requester but once he switches to 040 absolutely everything works flawlessly.
im a bit stumped why theres such a difference between my 2 setups, i might try and scrub my install from PC1 which is what i started reporting issues with, maybe try a full reinstall and see if the whdload issue remains, tho to be honest at this point ive just changed the startup sequence to copy over a version of whdload17 to C: every time on boot so even if live update gives me the newer one its instantly replaced by 1 that works for me.
As for my 2nd PC the setup of WINUAE is ofc identical to my 1st PC in every way so i have zero idea why 020 works on PC1, but 040 is required for PC2 and my uncles PC, but ocne that is changed everything works perfectly, the only notably difference between my 2 systems is that PC1 runs dual monitor and PC2 does not. Both run WinBlows 8.1, both are Intel based with Nvidia cards.
Heres a snap of PC2 running amikitx perfectly (but only with 040)http://oi67.tinypic.com/rh1fzt.jpg
