Hi

I have now AmigaOS 3.9 BB3, ClassicWB ADVSP 2.5 & AmigaSYS 4 R1.3 installed on my A4000. I access to one or another simply by the Boot Menu of the mobo, all works fine & without problems (other partitions, like Work, Games, etc... are shared).

I´m planning to install also AmigaOS 4.0 Classic. My idea is to use another boot partition FFS.

I need a special configuration for the AOS4 partition?
Installation of AOS4 is from floppy or CD?
A 472MB partition is enough for AOS4?

Thanks :)

The master of the multi-boot on here is Mfilos.

His thread HERE details a brief overview on his setup. It may be worthwhile dropping him a PM.

From my own experience, setting up OS 4 can be a bit of a pain, it requires both floppy and CD but it is possible to multi-boot.

@r0jaws​

Ok, thanks, sure I ask mfilos. (y)

But I see mfilos use a overclocked BPPC & SCSI don't work?. My "comming" board is CSPPC 060/50 233Mhz & I need to use SCSI in all environments..​

You can use your non-overclocked board with the same functionality.

Or just overclock the PPC chip (ask Stachu100).
