Hi, I have updated my V1200 to Gold 2.13 and then updated my AROS install to the one on the downloads page and it refuses to boot.

I can boot on the older AROS image I have but only get the normal disk animation on the RGB out with the newer version.

Am I missing something, or should I just revert to my older image (its from last year).

I don't understand what you mean when you talk about your Aros install/older Aros image.
  If you want to use ApolloOS on v1200 you need to flash or map the ApolloOS rom.
  And as far as I know only ide on a1200 motherboard works with Aros roms (ide on vampire is not visible).
I made a video last week showing what happens when you map the Aros rom with VampireMap. System boots using the ide on a1200 mobo.
  Maybe my video can help

I have an older disk image of ApolloOS from last year which boots from my A1200 IDE on either core 2.12 or 2.13.
I downloaded the disk image from the downloads section and it doesnt boot.
Looks like I may need the AROS rom, but is it worth it? And if so where would I get the rom from?

I'm just looking around, and the Gold 2.14 for V500 has the AROS rom built in, I may just have to wait for the V1200 Gold 2.14 exe to be released before I can use the newer image.
