I have got my old Rev 6a A500 working again, along with a kickstart 2 from an A600. It boots fine into workbench, even though I have only 512k ram at moment.
I am curious, every time I try to get into the boot menu it crashes. A reset brings up guru error. Is this standard behaviour?

Yes, you are curious. :)

No, I don't think it's "standard" behaviour. If you reboot and hold both mouse buttons to access the boot menu in an A500Plus (which is supposed to have KS2.04 in it) then you get a boot menu. :)

Hmm, I recall my r6a A500 did the same thing when it had a KS 3.1 ROM in it. Maybe the boot menu needs 1MB Chip? Seems unusual, but not impossible.
