Windows and Linux installation in HDF?

Hello I bought amikit whole pack, 1200 3.1.4 and 4.1 and to install amikit in Windows or Linux, I understand how to install via your tutorials is ok. But my question in the middle of the installation you define an hdf image? Or how is your final result after install it? What is left in my hard drive. I would like to have the 3.1.4 in one hdf image and the flowerpot 4.1 by independent in other hdf image, if this is with hdf images. Is possible install both in same hard drive and they don't collide right? But before install I wanted to ask to avoid a disaster. And of course if this works as hdf images, could you define the size of each one? Also a manual to create hdf images with all the parameters and characteristics to make them bootable?

Hi,

not sure what you're asking. Both AmiKit and FlowerPot have their own hdf images. Simply install AmiKit and FlowerPot to their own separate folders and you're good to go. Once you launch AmiKit, it will import required AmigaOS to its own hdf image. The same with FlowerPot, it imports AmigaOS to its own hardfile. Both programs run independently. If anything goes wrong, no worries, simply uninstall AmiKit (or FlowerPot) and install it again.

Probably the most easy way is to duplicate AmiKit hardfile. Go to AmiKit/AmiKit folder and duplicate AmiKit.hdf. Then run AmiKit launcher and select Configure. In CD&HarDrives section click Add Hardfile and locate the duplicate file. Now run the emulation. The AmiKit will boot with 2 mounted hardfiles. But because the duplicate has the same volume name (AmiKit) it doesn't appear. So, on AmiKit desktop, let's rename the drive - right click the AmiKit disk icon and select Rename. Rename it to AmiKit-original. Then reboot. The you will see both drives - AmiKit-original and AmiKit. Now Rename the AmiKit: drive to MyNewHardfile. Open it and delete everything on that hardfile (do not format). This way you have a new dynamic hardfile - which means it's less than 1GB large but can enlarge automatically if you copy more files on it - up to 3.9GB. Just don't forget to rename AmiKit-original back to AmiKit.

Ok yes. But I want to make an hdf image of 64gb, how?

Well, in that case you have to start from scratch and deal with filesystem, HDToolBox, formatting... etc. and hope such big hardfile is supported. I've never created nor needed anything beyond 4GB, but you can try your luck here http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=87115 and here http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=61666

Can I use a fresh image installed with this of the os 3.9:

Later upgrade to 3.1.4 with your Amikit? Well, here if I use other tools all the stuff you have in Amiga kit. I ask because the advantage of Amikit is all the stuff installed. Then if I make an image of 64 go with the tool I posted before, how can I install all the your Amikit stuff?

I don't know what is HstWB-Installer about. I am sorry. Why do you need 64GB hardfile anyway? It doesn't make sense.
Anyway, if you manage to create it (for whatever reason) and you make it bootable, you can simply copy all AmiKit files there.

Oh ok. Excellent. Just the last question any special directories of your configurations and applications? Just grab all the folders and paste to the new one?

Once you manage to create a new hardfile, make sure it's bootable and it's named AmiKit. Also the device name should be AK0.
Then it is enough to copy all AmiKit files to such hardfile and you're good to go.

Regarding the other issue, I've answered in the other thread you created.
