update from 2.1.3 to x-mass edition HD errors

I had icaros 2.1.3 installed and it was stable on my acer aspire one and i than decided to update system files from x-mass edition and my icaros stops booting half way on boot.

Than I boot my xmass edition cd and boots ok from the cd and my harddisks which was there before and gives me read errors and  it just won't show any files, btw I have installed and formated my hd's while my bios was set to sata mode = AHCi and now if I set my bios sata mode = IDE and boots via xmass edition cd and I can see my files and no errors and my question is why AHCI gives me errors but IDE don't? 

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hello

Please notice upgrading from 2.1.x to 2.2 is a totally unsupported and not-suggested operation.

Aside of this, your problem might mean there's been some regressions in AHCI management which, if confirmed, should be investigated.

Since you've now completely messed up your old installation, I'd suggest to copy your data elsewhere and try re-installing Icaros 2.2 from scratch, using AHCI in BIOS to see if it's still correctly supported or not.

Keep your current jfif.library from Libs:, because you will need it with the Xmas edition (see the other topic about OWB graphic corruption).

I have really tried hard not to format my harddisks because I had alot of half cooked on going projects and I know I can resolve the problem but I can not remember size of the 2 partitions I had and I did wrote somewhere but I can not find that little book .

Just want to ask is there way to find previous harddisks partition size?

I know we don't have sfs doctor but 68k has some tools can they do the job?

I'm confused: I thought you said in your first post that you could read your files from HD if you set IDE mode in the BIOS? If so, why don't you copy them somewhere safe?

Have you tried Testdisk ?

It may be worth giving it a try to recover your Partition information.

How I would recover your HD!

1) Get a Linux Live Boot CD and boot from it.

2) Plug in an USB stick and mount it.

3) dd if=/dev/sda of=/path/to/usb/stick/backup.img

To keep an Image of the Partition (you can use any other method if you like)

4) Run Testdisk and let it process your HD. It might (or might not) be able to recover your partition table or any unknown partition it might detect (the unknown one may be the AROS one).

5) Recover and write the partition table.

In worst case you can put your image back on your harddisk and re-try again.

Yes, it's a good idea to make a backup image of the disk before you do anything potentially destructive.

I think our SFS filesysten is compatible with the original Amiga SFS, but Amiga recovery tools probably won't recognise AROS partition tables.

There are generic file recovery tools for Linux/Windows (e.g. photorec for Linux), but they might be better at finding media files than plain text etc.
