You can do a DualBoot between AROS and Amithlon ? perhaps adding it to the AROS GRUB?

I've seen people mention using AROS grub to dual boot aros/amithlon, but Im no grub expert so I can't offer any assistance sorry.

Another option could be to simply change boot drive priority in your bios to swap between aros and amithlon.

Hi,

Going from this http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=31613&page=26
I would guess that the x in set root= is the partition number and linux16 line adjusted to suit the kernel, etc you are using

menuentry "Amithlon" {
set root=(hd0,x)
linux16 /boot/kern310 console_level=0 init=/linuxrc root=/dev/ram0 mem=768M vga=769 ramdisk_size=2310 leavepages=5200 cachesize=65536
initrd16 /boot/smallird.gz
}

Thank you, what I wanted to know is whether it can be done without using Linux

Hi,

Assuming you are using two partitions (small fat16 boot and $76 for os3.9)

format c: /s

substitute the drive letter eg, D: if more than one fat partition

so that the fat16 partition is wiped (be sure which partition) and the msdos system files are copied and the amithlon/isolinux CD files are copied there as well.

MSDOS:
-------
AUTOEXEC.BAT
COMMAND.COM
KERNEL.SYS
LOADLIN.EXE <- kicks the Amithlon Kernel into life

Amithlon:
--------
AMITHLON <-like 'SMALL' but for 'BIGIRD.GZ
SMALL <-Contains boot-params for Amithlon, used by 'LOADLIN.EXE'
EMUBOX.GZ <-The Amithlon Kernel itself
SMALLIRD.GZ <-Amithlon files minus internal minimal AmigaOS install
BIGIRD.GZ <-The whole thing (only really useful when you have issues)

So, you're booting MSDOS which then calls LOADLIN.EXE to boot the Amithlon kernel itself...

loadlin @small

FYI, bigird has a small internal os3.9 within so one fat16 or possibly fat32 partition would be needed

loadlin @amithlon


grub entry would be something like

;set root=(hdx,y) for the fat16 partition
set root=(hd0,1)
chainloader +1

Only tried amithlon once a very long time ago so hazy over the details now.
