Today I spent many frustrating hours working on setting up a new 16GB CF card for my Amiga 1200.
Got everything setup in WinUAE on my PC, partitioned the CF card into 2 PFS3 partitions (500MB + rest) and then copied the Workbench contents onto partition 1, followed by all the WHDLoad & AGS2 etc stuff onto partition 2. After all that was finished I booted from the CF card in WinUAE and - no 2nd partition found.
Now if I wasn't such a novice with Workbench & Amiga OS in general, I could have probably solved that in less than 5 minutes. Instead I tried all kinds of different things, at 1 point making the problem even worse and having to wipe the CF card and re-partition again. If I'd simply realised sooner that all I needed to do was copy a newer version of scsi.device in to DEVS on the Workbench drive, I could have saved myself many hours of troubleshooting.
At least the card now boots on both WinUAE and my Amiga 1200, now I just have to copy all the WHDLoad stuff etc back over to it. Hey on the bright side I guess, I'm learning a lot more about how this OS works.
