Hello all, I am trying to use OS 3.1.4 using Vampiremap on StartUp-Sequence but when I boot the system just keeps recycling power.  I noticed there is a VampireMap to use coffin rom, should I replace that?  Thanks.  This is for Vampire 500 v2+ on Amiga 2000 and yes I do have an image of my Amiga 2000 3.1.4 rom that I purchased.  It worked fine under R54 Coffin.

Only one VampireMap instruction on startup sequence.

So should I replace vampiremap coffin.rom with the ROM (3.1.4) I want to use?  Thanks.

Yes, but coffin is 3.9-based. I don't see reasons to use 3.1.4 kickstart with a 3.9 based system. But yes, if you want to use it this way you have to maprom the 3.1.4 rom (and not the coffin.rom)

In addition to what was written already, you should use the A1200 version of 3.1.4 ROM with the Vampire, not the A500 version, even if it is a V500. This is also written in the release notes for OS 3.1.4.
