|Rationale is - dont mess with startup sequence if you dont need it!|
If you do, boot with no startup sequence and in any text editor edit the startup sequence so it works. You can test it by setting echo on command in AmigaOS (actualy a environment setting) and then executing the startup sequence.
This is quote from my x1000 manual, but works with OS 3.x too ;)
2011 x1000 quickstart guide page 12
1. Problems During AmigaOS Booting - In case the computer repeatedly freezes after the CFE Boot Menu, ×on AmigaOS splash screen, this problem can problem can be diagnosed by adding the following command at the beginning of the “startup-sequence” script in the System:S/ directory:
set echo on This command will cause each command in the script to be displayed in a console window, allowing you to see the progress and any hold up in the execution of this
So you boot with no startup sequence, type echo on (enter) execute S:startup sequence and see what happens after each line, seeing exactly what blanks/crashes/prevents AmigaoS from loading.
Then you can reboot again with no startup-sequence and delete, edit out faulty lines. And voila, you should be able to boot AmigaOS again (with working startup sequence).
Technical AmigaOS exponation of echo on
