Great find. Yes - it is a combination of MiSTer (binary) and Kick.rom (pre-2.04) that stops adfs from being recognized.

Your test MiSTer binary solves the issue. :mrgreen:

I will test with Kick 1.3. At least there is a clue. I use Kick 3.1 as i use dual-boot Amiga.

The problem is with the variable dsklen , in minimig_fdd.cpp .

If uncoment the three lines (169, 204 and 221 ) in this file, and compile MiSTer file (last version) , the adf load.

In the attachments i put a version of last mister (release 20190112) with this changes , some other people with the problem of adf not loading can test this version ?


Thanks albconde! =)
Your "test build" of Minimig works as normal (loading ADFs), just did some preliminary tests with kickstart 1.2, 1.3
Still I wonder why only a few were effected.

I guess not everybody tests all kickstart versions all the time. Most use hdds and therefor cannot use the real old kickroms.

Anyway, thanks for finding and fixing, Sorgelig. :cheers:

FWIW, though the process is a bit convoluted, you can patch 1.3 to use the A600 IDE drivers. I've done this to get a bootable 1.3 partition on MIST and MiSTer.

I did not know that. I know that my old A2000 work with an SCSI HDD with 1.3 kickrom back in the days, but that was because of the SCSI controller bios. I will have to give the patch a try someday :)
