How do I boot MorphOS from a CD?
|Insert the CD, copy the Boot/ directory to a normal partition
|Do a hardreboot or powercycle the machine so that all resident modules including a softkicked ROM are flushed (you must NOT use blizkick or similar tools before booting MorphOS!)
|Boot with no startup sequence and type something like... (Click image below for the exact boot command.)
Create a bootable partition and copy all the files from the
CD to it. Now launch a text editor and read the instructions in partition:s/startup-sequence to tweak it to
meet your needs. The partition may have a low boot priority - remember to set the
bootdevice option in that case! It is better not to set the MorphOS partition as
your default boot partition on the initial install. In order to
boot, go to the early startup menu and boot from the MorphOS partition.
Limitations and Registration
MorphOS 1.4.5 PowerUP edition is limited to 2 hours per session. After that period it will
slow down considerably.
If you would like to remove this limitation, install and configure a network stack.
Then, launch the RegTool utility found in the root directory of your MorphOS partition.
