Re: New AROS user
No incompatibility hardware, with Virtual Machines there is only VESA Mode for AROS !

Re: New AROS user

On Myst III Exile I also eliminated the error Play "TOHO_MUSIC2.mp3," which is the music base of the Games Menu

[quote name=Deremon post=4784]@Deremon Core2quad has a GA-P35-DS3 motherboard Tomorrow I'll check AthlonXP one [/quote] What you can try is selecting the last option in the boot menu. This will boot into VGA mode where you will see boot messages on the screen while AROS boots. Possibly you will see there any error message that might lead us on where the regression is.

[quote name=AMIGASYSTEM post=4750]@AMIGASYSTEM - Hi welcome to this, where are you from? Actually if the ISO starts from VM it means that the bootloader is correct, probably your PC is not supported at Hardware level, have you checked [url=https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Aros/Platforms/x86_Complete_System_HCL][b]HERE[/b][/url]. If you forward your software to aros archive, they will be already available from the "Uploads" tab anyway, as soon as possible I would like to test them on AROS One, thanks[/quote] Hi AMIGASYSTEM, I'm from italy, I'll check HCL thanks! :) I've uploaded scummvm-1.9.0 and residualvm-0.3.1 to aros archives if you want to test them [quote name=deadwood post=4753]@deadwood - @Deremon Hello and welcome! It is always good to see a fellow software developer joining our community. With regards to the hardware problem you mention, first it make sense to check the link that @AMIGASYSTEM posted to see if your hardware does not need some additional parameters with newer versions of AROS. Additionally at top of that page you have a list of recommended hardware which is quite cheap and possibly you'd need only to swap out motherboard. With the hardware you have, there are a few options you can try: 1) using the default grub menu item, edit it and add "bootmenu" to kernel parameters list. Does the bootmenu start? If yes, do you see your cdrom and harddrive in it? 2) try adding noapci kernel parameter in grub, often ACPI support for older hardware is problematic Also please share what motherboard you have and whether your CDROM is IDE or SATA.[/quote] Hi Deadwood, unfortunately I'm a linux/windows system engineer not a software developer, the most "serious" programming language I've used was Turbo Pascal at school (and bash scripting doesn't make me a software developer) :) I try to compile things debugging with my limited experience and *a lot* of google searches I've tested latest build also with a core2quad and nothing, it will not boot even with bootmenu and/or noapic but Icaros desktop just works, so I think I'll double check the iso, I will also try AROS One and TinyAROS aside from the "official" base builds On AthlonXP there's only IDE On core2quad I've IDE and SATA, CDROM is SATA Core2quad has a GA-P35-DS3 motherboard Tomorrow I'll check AthlonXP one [quote name=miker1264 post=4751]@miker1264 - Also, if you compile GitHub sources for vanilla AROS that is considered the "core" system. It only has the basic system files. It's better to use a distro such as AROS One x86 or even Icaros Desktop although it is based on older systems files. Tiny AROS is another one. The distros such as AROS One x86 are full of preloaded and preconfigured software. I like AROS One x86 because "it just works". Especially the sound and datatypes and themes are well done. The def_icons and descriptors are also well done. On supported hardware it just works.[/quote] Hi miker1264, I'll try them all :) Thanks for the help and the warm welcome!

Re: Presentation & Distro questions!
Lucio check [url=https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Aros/Platforms/x86_Complete_System_HCL][b]HERE[/b][/url] the compatibility of your Hardware, my advice anyway is to try AROS as first time on Virtual Machine where hardware compatibility is total. Other advice is to use VMware, easier to configure than VirtualBox, Audio and Network will be configured automatically without setting any parameters, follow the attached video ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uE_B-1x0Ss If you burned the USB image on a Pendrive, if it does not boot on your PC, try it on some other PC ! Warning !!! the USB image of AROS One was created with Rufus 3.x, so incompatible with the new versions of Rufus 4.x From the next version the AROS One image will be generated with the new Rufus 4.x, consequently it will no longer be compatible with older versions of Rufus 3.x

Re: Presentation & Distro questions!
I've tried both AROS One and Tiny Aros on DVD, but both won't boot. I'll go ahead and create two VMs. Thank you for your time :)

Re: Presentation & Distro questions!
currently Tiny Aros is updated to the latest available build in the future it depends on what will change there will be other updates but at present there are few things that will change

Re: Presentation & Distro questions!
@Amiwell79 thank you for your support so far. I'm buring the ISO file to a dvd right now. I don't have high hopes that it will work (and even if it does manage to boot, I think I wont have eth due to missing drivers etc), but I still want to give it a try. That said, I'll anyway create 2 VMs and I'll install Tiny Aros in one of them. What's your update policy regarding Tiny Aros tho?

Tiny Aros takes much less time

Re: Presentation & Distro questions!
yes you can do it only the installation process is very long, however I was referring to disk emulation

[quote name=Amiwell79 post=4763]@Amiwell79 - check whether IDE device emulation is enabled in the bios[/quote] I can't find anything like that in this EFI (IDE device emulation on USB is probably not supported). This Optiplex has a DVD-ROM drive, perhaps trying a boot from there might worth a try?

Re: Presentation & Distro questions!
Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! So, I tried booting the latest AROS One on my DELL Optiplex 5040, but it can’t boot (waiting for bootable media). Of course it was expected, and I know that this isn’t supported hardware but I wanted to give it a try anyway. I’m going to create a VM ;)
