I have an A2088 Bridgeboard in my (German) A2000 Rev 4.0, which works fine, but not when my GoldenIMAGE RC-2000 memory card is installed. It's running the v3.5 BIOS (380788-04), and I now want to try v3.6.1 (380788-06) instead, since it's described as having fixes for third-party autoconfig card compatibility.
However, I can't get the Bridgeboard to start at all with 3.6.1. I've tried a couple of different EPROMs and I've verified their contents, as well as burning a 3.5 EPROM as a control. The 3.5 works, none of the 3.6.1 works. Does anyone know of any such issue? I'm using the latest Janus software from http://amiga.resource.cx/exp/a2088xt
and I do not have a clock mod on the board, and no ISA cards installed. I'm testing without the GoldenIMAGE card, of course. The symptoms are
- No activity on the floppy drive
- Janus.library fails to load
Also, does anybody know anything about the compatibility problem with the GoldenIMAGE card? Does anyone run a BridgeBoard together with a SupraRAM card, which is more or less the same card, only (apparently) newer? I know I can't use an 8MB expansion together with the A2088, but I only have 4MB on this card, and I've even tried setting the jumpers to 2MB with no difference. The symptoms when I have the memory card installed is
- ZaphodServiceTask crashes on startup, but Janus.library loads
- The PC console shows only garbage
