How can I install the Workbench 3.1 with the original Apollo core?
It works with Apollo Boot Solo.

How can I do that manually?

I don't understand that. I understand only that I have to start the vamire map from a disk. But how can I start  a start a disk from Vampire V4 standalone or an adf-file?

You don't need a disk. Put VampireMap as first line in your OS 3.x Startup-Sequence.

But Workbench 3.0 should run with Aros.Rom too.

Can I put VamireMap Icon in the Startup drawer or does I have to put it with the folder in the startup-sequence?

In the Link from above....

Method 1 and there is also an example.


Example usage in S:Startup-Sequence:

; Kickstart 3.1.4 has expansion.library V45.  For other Kickstarts, use the appropriate version.
Version >NIL: expansion.library 45
If WARN
  ; Use the correct Kickstart file path.  If mapping an extended ROM file with Kickstart 1.3, add the appropriate arguments.
  C:VampireMap DEVS:Kickstarts/kick.a1200
EndIf

You will need a Kickstart-File for this.

You have to edit the file 'startup-sequence' that is in the 'S:' folder with the lines above.

I want to add the Kickstart for the Amiga 1200-
Can you tell me, where in the startup-sequence I have to add which instruction and I want to prepare the workbench in Winuae from this tutorial:
EXTERNAL LINK  The vapmireMap is in SAGA-Driver. Can I install the Saga-Driver at the point, after I have to install the P96-Driver in Winuae or the driver must me installed after I put the CF-Card in my Apollo V4, and I have to add the VampireMap before?

Sorry, I think, that sounds confused, but  but I hope you understand what I mean.

Thank you!
