If you can boot fine in 2.11 have you tried just doing a exe core update install from the Amiga shell?

Likely need to do the power modification to the capacitors on the V600.

I solved it. The problem was I had to add the Setpatch in my startup sequence.

I have a similar problem.
  I updated my 600v2 to gold2.12 using the USB Blaster successfully, but when restart, I get the vampire image with v2.12 at the bottom, but in the RGB I get nothing... it just stays there for ever. CF does not boot nor floppy.
  I go back to gold2.11, everything works fine.
  Please help!
  Note: how do you add the setpath in startup sequence when it does not even get to asking for floppy or tries to boot CF at all?
  Note: will the capacitors solution work or what about using a more powerful PSU? (I just ordered one)
