Hello!

I am an enthusiastic user and fan of Amikit. As the Amiga environment is so perfectly configured with all the necessary WORKING programs I have one question. I own an A4000 and A1200. Is it possible to install the Amikit environment together with OS3.9 at the real classic amigas? Without Winuae and the other windows stuff of course. Could I use the Amiga relevant Amikit files for an installation?

Thank you for your ideas and answers!

well, this is not possible without a "fine-tuning" of default AmiKit configuration. This configuration is adjusted to WinUAE, you know. The only solution is to install AmiKit on PC and then manually copy all the files somewhere to your real Amiga HDD, but not to your boot partition ofcourse! I am afraid AmiKit would not boot. But you can manually copy some of the AmiKit files to your real Amiga. Automatic installer for the real thing is not available yet, sorry.

No progress with automatic installation on real machine, sorry. Simply there's not enough man power to do that.

Anyway, few suggestion can be found in this thread.

The LZX archive of AmiKit 1.2.0 is here:
http://amikit.amiga.sk/download/lzx/AmiKit120.lzx (120MB)

It's just a re-compressed package, no alterations were made (so it's still fine-tuned for WinUAE).

The LZX archive of AmiKit 1.4.0 is here:
http://amikit.amiga.sk/download/archive/AmiKit140.lzx (129MB)

Again, it's just a re-compressed package, no alterations were made (so it's still fine-tuned for WinUAE).

I have a problem with this archive
there is corruption error when using unarc or voodoox
it lacks several repertoire as S, WBstartup, rexxc, storage, system, t, tolls, utilitie
while the workbench has great need, especially startupsequence and user
is this normal
thank you

Dear J??n! I have the same question but in case of AmiKit XE. I tried to install it on a vampirized Amiga 500 without the help of WinUAE (I'm a real Amiga enthusiast ). The partitioning is well done, I have an "AmiKit" named PFS3 partiton on my 32GB CF-card. The next step would be easy, just "copying the files from LZX" and then boot from it. I have just a simple 44-pin IDE cable for connecting th CF-card adapter to the Vampire. Do I need an IDE cable with two connectors and another CF-card (which is the place for the LZX before the copy) or is there any solution with only one CF-card? One could be the usege of the Vampires SD-card for it but do you need an easy solution to make a floppy to see tha SD-card and then use it for te LZX and for the copying during the installation of XE?

Hello! Perhaps you can create two bootable partitions on a CF card? Copy the AmiKit files to the second one and then boot it.

Thanks, it worked! I copied my Hyperion ZIP (all together!) archives and P96 to the proper drawer and rebooted the system. Boot is okay, it finds and try to map my kick.rom after an ENTER. Then I get blank screen both the normal Amiga RGB output and Vampire's HDMI. I tried it with my proper P96 settings as well with the same result.

I guess it could be a screenmode problem because the system doesn't crashes (Caps Lock is changing the LED after pressure). What could be the next step? How can I setup a proper screenmode for first booting?

Thanks in advance!
