Cat Bootscreen...and then?

Author Tamiga

Hello all,

I have installed Amikit 1.0 with OS3.9 CD and Kickstart 3.1. Installation ran well without any Problem. Installation language is German. After the first boot a picture of a cat appears, but nothing else happens then. I have checked the UAE configuration, there shouldn't be any problem.

Do you have the solution for this problem. I hope it isn't a silly question I am asking so far.

Thank you for your comments.

Hello Tamiga!

Press the ESC key to quit the bootpicture. Then you can see what happened behind the picture and why the system did not boot completely.

It might happen that IPrefs crashes during the boot process (behind the bootpicture so this picture never disappears). In that case just reset your AmiKit by CTRL+LWin+RWin keys or press F12 and select RESET from the left-down area of the GUI.

IPrefs usually crashes on some hardware configurations, the reason is yet unknown. However, if you reset and try to boot again, the system should boot normally...

This hint is missing in German translation of AmiKit webpage. I apologize.

If it doesn't boot anyway, try to remove ShowAmiga96 from startup-sequence so the boot picture is not shown at all and you can see what's happening during the boot process...

If AmiKit refuses to start for whatever reason, try to use "AmiKit/S/Startup-Sequence.SAFEMODE" as a regular Startup-Sequence.

I also had that problem, and I had to disable the boot loader completely when I was using 060 emulation under E-uae. 020 emulation, it worked like a champ, just a bit slower.
