Booting From CF Card Doesn't Work Anymore Suddenly

Was happy tinkering with my OS 3.9, did a reset, and then I see that red Vampire logo and nothin happens.

I can mount the card on my Macbook and boot into the OS on FS-UAE with no problems.

Anything else, that I could try here?

Ah, and it's a V1200 were are talking about here...
 
  add/edit: When I start the A1200 without the Vampire, the CF card is booting normally into workbench (although it's looking shitty, off course).
 
  So, the IDE port seems to be okay.

add/edit2: now with two screens, one on the analog output and one on the Vampires DIGITAL-VIDEO, I noticed that the OS seems to be loading on the analog output, and that's the reason probably I don't see anything but the bat on the DIGITAL-VIDEO out.

Why is that happening? :/

Well, found out that all of my non stndard modes are suddenly gone.
Anyone any idea where these are usually located?

Yes! In the cloud Michael! :)
Or you have deleted Devs:Picasso96Settings, file that contains the custom screen modes
Or deleted ENVARC:SYS/Screenmode.prefs, that contains the screenmode defined trough Prefs:ScreenMode
Or....
Maybe you have defined the sscreenmode to Pal

Hello Pedro, thanks for the help.. :)
Seems weirdly enough, some OS stuff was installed on my CF card, and when that ceased to work, it took that part of my OS with it..

Well, learned a bit about that yesterday when finding out... :D
