Re: TF536 booting but no fast ram

AddMem made the extra RAM appear and it tested out fine! I needed to find a Kick 1.3 compatible version first and found it as part of 'yKick' on Aminet. Its unfortunately not reset-resident and "CPU FASTROM" does not work - so everything workbench is dog slow :-) IDE is working, too. I'm using a ca....

Re: TF536 booting but no fast ram

Cool, I'll try that tonight! Would it be possible to support ZII space (accepting only 8mb Fast RAM) via a separate firmware? Or - way cooler - via a jumper (or keyboard press during coldboot) at runtime? Thank you! I also want to add that the board build was a very pleasant experience. Having no Mi...

Re: TF536 booting but no fast ram

Would AddMem as a crutch help (I don't have a 3.1 ROM handy)? If so, what are the address ranges that TF536 decodes?

TF536 booting but no fast ram

I received my board this week and built it last night. It booted on first run (I love the flashing colors on reset 😃) but no fastmem is reported (no Autoconfig board is being found). SysInfo is reporting 7mhz, but I think this is the down-clocking on chipmem access in action(?). This is a Kick1.3 A5...

Re: Problem Terrible Fire 534 Amiga 500 rev6

Yeah, I know :-) I'd like to build one, though... After the nice experience with the TF530 I quite enjoy soldering. Do you have any tips on a modern DIY +1MB expansion solution (ideally with an RTC on it... I enjoy knowing when I last touched a file - "oh man, I did this 15 years ago?!?!?"). Can the...

Re: Problem Terrible Fire 534 Amiga 500 rev6

Ok, that confirms my experience. It works well with my Kick 1.3 A500. IDE works as such, but autoboot doesn't - I need a boot disk that mounts DH0: and then forwards booting into the 'Harddisk' (SDCARD adapter). This is a Rev 8.1A board, internally upgraded to 1mb, plus an additional 500kb ram expan...

Re: Problem Terrible Fire 534 Amiga 500 rev6

Kickstart 1.3 is a no go!
Does this also apply to TF530? Or is TF530 working because of using ZorroII address space?

General soldering advise

This may be an old hat for the more experienced, but was a good lesson for me. I am using a ChipQuick "Tacky No Clean Flux" for most stuff. Its ok for soldering but leaves a sticky goo behind. The good thing is, it is non-conductive. But that can also be a bad thing... What happened to me is that af...

Re: DCache/Burst with Kick 1.3?

"SetCpu" from Aminet did the trick for me. It also has a nice FASTROM option to map Kickstart into RAM.

SetCPU CACHE BURST FASTROM
Brings SysInfo on a 50Mhz TF530 on par (if not above) a Blizzard1230-IV.

The IDE speed is also phenomenal... up to 4.8mb/s via ide.device
