Hi all,
New to the vampire scene, I have a vampire in my Amiga 2000. If i use the vampire the compact flash that came with it then it boots nicely into the correct dashboard, Whdload and the like. I then have a 32 GB sd card that I have flashed the latest version of Coffin onto, on the RGB display it boots into a 3.1 purple style boot screen, it lists the vampire and bringing the amiga back etc but its waiting for a disk?

What do I need to do to get it to boot into Coffin?

Thanks for coming back;

At boot up on the DIGITAL-VIDEO port it shows the vampire girl and says gold 2.11 apollo core AMMX.

So it must be sometihng else, should I expect the SD card to just boot into coffin os?

No.
Amiga OS can only boot from IDE
 
Did you flash Coffin on an CF card?

No, SD a the read me applied CF or SD, but thats fine as I have a CF card and will do that now instead.

Thanks for replying though Gunnar!

Today AMIGA OS can only boot from IDE.
AROS could probably boot from both IDE and SDCard.
We want to improve this and hope in future both OS can boot from both devices.
