Already have a 1D4 mainboard with RP for recapping and 3.1.4 ROM upgrade. Sent PM to change the 3.1.4 ROMs to OS 3.2 instead

No harm, no foul :)

great stuff.

would be interesting to know what is actually changed, is it just bug fixes or new features ??

can you still boot from a floppy disk without it complaining libraries are missing.

Steve, i've placed my order for the 3.2 cd today, just wondered if you knew, is it a pressed cd or is a cdr with a label?

I got questions about Hard drive Amiga OS 3.2 and if I order it as does it mean I need AMIGA OS 3.2 Rom Chip?

Will all games work on Amiga OS 3.2 Rom Chip?

will there be a download available for the CD ? or do we have to wait for the "real" CDs to be shipped?

The CD is part of the whole package, no download required.

Hyperion website says that digital versions (machine specific) will follow later.

not my question...
i was asking if it it would be possible to download the CD (an image of it or the contents of it) before the shipping is available ...
so .. maybe right now, instead of waiting for the CD to be produced and shipped.

The answer is still the same:)

The CD is part of the whole package.
You buy AmigaOS 3.2, you get a physical CD and ROMs.
There is no pre-shipping download of the CD available.
Hyperion have stated that there will be downloadable, machine specific ISO's of the CD made available at a later date, presumably to registered OS 3.2 buyers only.

Hope that's cleared that up for you.

BTW: i placed an order at a local (german) dealer.. so i'll wait for it :)

Order placed Steve - the description has slightly changed (for the better BTW) from when I placed my order and good news the CDROM covers all Amiga models. I ordered a physical room for an A1200, presumably I can add eeproms for A500/A600 to the order. Canít go mad though as have several Amigas and have 3.1.4 roms in a few A1200 but would like to make a start on my A500s and A600s. And if Iíve read this correctly OS 3.2 can be installed on those models without physical kickstarts. Looks an excellent upgrade.

... make a start on my A500s and A600s. And if I’ve read this correctly OS 3.2 can be installed on those models without physical kickstarts. Looks an excellent upgrade.
just keep in mind, that this OS needs a lot of memory and storage space - an harddrive is adviced to be used... running OS3.2 on an A500 only makes sense in combination with an accellerator (TF or Vampire or something).
You can use 3.2 without a physical rom, but you need at least 3.1 as ROM and ~1MB of fastram to have "loadmodule" do all the job of loading the new libs and parts reset-resident.

Thanks for the advice, much appreciated! Storage space not an issue nowadays. I use ACA plus with ACA1221 on my A500+ And has 3.1 rom so could get away without physical rom but a tenner isn’t going to break the bank - I must say the hardware add ons for the A500 are incredible. My A600 has basic expansion so would struggle without physical rom but eeprom won’t cost a leg.
I’ve requested an invoice from Retro Passion anyway so the order can be easily amended.

It is recommended that a 3.2 kickstart is used with 3.2, however you can still use 3.1 and 3.1.4. The advantage of 3.2 it manages chip ram far better.

Only a physical CD will be available which is the the ultimate package. and the digital later for specific Amigas. I understand what your saying but Hyperon are keeping it 'real' :-)

You can store the Kickstart ROM 3.2 in the ACA 500 Plus. I did the same with Kickstart 3.1.4.

We are waiting on more EPROMS which will take around 10/14 days too arrive. We had a batch on order but only made aware the shipment was canceled 5 days later, we have another batch on order so any order with ROMS will be delayed.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused!

Thanks!
