All I know is that there were some problems with IDE in original 6.20, so it was patched by some in past. I recommend that use ROM IMG files from 8bitchip.info for now - they are tested with ACSI .
I need to trace complete boot process in Steem Debugger to see what exactly happens. Then maybe will be able to compose version which is OK for ACSI and IDE autoboot. + Will be with full English translation. Otherwise will have 2 versions - ACSI and IDE . That will take some time ..

Sounds like you're using an older version of this tool. Mag!X is the name used for old (v2?) versions of MagiC. I bought a Falcon in November 1994, and remember that there was no MagiC with Falcon-support at that time. That came with MagiC 4 in the following year. I can see that the tool from Crawly Crypt which was linked to above is from 1994. I suspect it only supports MagiC 3. So it is not the same as I use. I just noticed that now. The second link posted (http://atari4ever.free.fr/hardware/zip/magrom5.zip) is the version I used.
