|Well it was quite a PITA but I eventually got it up and running with ApolloOS, and I'm really impressed. Also its amazing what you suddenly remember from over 20 years ago.|
I needed to flash the V1200 before ApolloOs would work, forgot that uncompressing an lha on a pc then moving the files over doesnt work as it changes some file bits. So the flashrom program didnt work, so after an hour or two I eventually remembered this and managed to flash the V1200. (after 3 different WB installs, WINUAE having 3.1.4 and me having the 3.x disks)
Swaped in the CF card with apollo Os and it was up and running.
Though I did push it and try installing easynet so I could try my pcmcia ethernet adaptor, and it messed up the install and Apollo OS no longer boots, but I just need to rewrite the card and it'll be fine.
