I thought I should start a brand new post instead of continually threading.
Plus, this post will show everything I have done and what's going on to give
you guys a better insight:
Amiga 500 rev 5 board.
BigFoot Power supply to supply power to the Amiga, CPU Fan, and Hard Drive.
VXL30/25 Accelerator with the VXL RAM32 (8MB) board with the modified
Kickstart 3.1 ROM on the 8MB board (has a socket for the kickstart on it,
and the system will not work if the Kickstart is socketed on the mainboard
of the Amiga).
Slingshot Zorro II Extender.
A2091 SCSI card with v6.6 ROMS and version 4 of the WDC chip (Yes, the card
3 connector 50-pin SCSI cable from A2091 internal 50 pin to the Seagate hard
Seagate Hawk 2LP 2.1GB Hard Drive.
System will not come up when the A2091 is jumpered for autoboot.
System will come up when the A2091's autoboot jumper is disabled, but of
course will not see the hard drive then.
A2091 set for 0K mem, all other jumpers set for off.
Seagate hard drive all possible settings I have tried.
With it all together and the A2091 set for autoboot, the computer comes on
for about a second and then the screen goes blank and the whole thing sits
there (I've waited for up to 5 minutes at times). Can't get into preboot
settings by holding down the two mouse buttons while powering on the system.
When the hard drive is jumpered for Enable Motor Start, it won't spin up.
Taking the jumper off that setting, it will spin up on its own. Tried every
termination possibility on the hard drive with no success of the computer
I tried unplugging the hard drive...won't boot. I tried unplugging the
Disabling the A2091 autoboot jumper, makes the computer boot up fine in
OS3.1 from floppy as if the A2091 wasn't plugged in at all. Can get into
the preboot settings when I do this and all the boards show up in the
config. The VXL30, RAM board for the VXL30, and the A2091.
Place the autoboot jumper back on, and I'm back to not booting at all again.
The exact same thing happens to my other Amiga 500 I have, when I plug The
A2091 with the Zorro II Extender into it. It's a standard A500 rev 5 with
1.3 Kickstart & 1MB RAM.
I'm getting a 540MB Conner SCSI hard drive later on in the week. I'm going
to hook that up when I get it and see if I get any difference.
I got the A2091 from Software Hut. I originally ordered a different SCSI
board, but something got messed up and I got the A2091 instead, which was an
upgrade from the ADSCSI board I was going to get at no extra cost (says
right on the receipt).
With all the info on one post, this should make things clearer I hope.
Am I missing something here? What am I not doing right? Do I have a bad
HD, A2091? Anyone ever hear of this happening before?
So far I appreciate everything that everyone has tried to do for me here.
