Minimig help - n00b! HDF issue

Postby gnasher666 » Sat Jul 21, 2018 2:33 pm

Hi,

I've been following any guide I can find to create a HDF file for use with the MiST, I've used HSTWB toolkit, created blank disks in WINUAE, created a blank disk file using DD in linux and regardless of how I've created it when I add it as a file within the MiST config I just get a blank screen when the MiST resets. I have a WB Install disk inserted as DF0: but nothing.

I would really appreciate some help and someone pointing out when I n00b I am by doing x y or z wrong or not doing a b or c first :D

Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the link, I've already tried this guide and I still get the same issue.

With my MIST it worked flawless, please try another SD card (minimig core may be picky in this aspect).

I had the same problem. Hardfiles created by the emulator didn't work for me. This is how I got it to work: I used the empty hardfile from this page, installed everything on the emulator and copied the new hardfile to the MiST.

Still no luck,

I've tried a 2GB SDCard formatted as Fat16, and a 4, 8 and 16GB cards formatted as Fat32.

Followed the guide mentioned and all the advice given so far. Looks like I've hit road block.

The difference is that the MiST works more like a real Amiga and needs the RDB (partition table).

However you should be able to boot from DF0 regardless of whether the hard file is working. Do you get floppy disk animation at all? Can you get into Workbench using an ADF file?

The SDCard reading light is solid on and nothing else happens even with an ADF file mounted on DF0:

When I disable the HDD support I have a fully working Amiga which loads games and boots into Workbench as normal, including booting from the Workbench Install disk.
