Could Someone Test Aros On V2?

It is only a try and I do not know if it works

I have created a HDF that is identical to V4 but activates Turtle mode in s-s and I hope Aros boots (slowly)

Would be grateful if someone can test it and report

Hi Olaf,

I just tried it and I get the following errors:
Please insert volume PIPE in any drive (pressed cancel)
Please insert volume ENV in any drive (pressed cancel)
Could not open version 0 or higher of library "stdc.library" (pressed exit)

Then it stops booting and the machine hangs.

Hello Olaf and thank you for your work.
    I tested your aros for v2, but doesn't work.
    I identified than arosbootstrap are bad. Error when is loading the hunk.
    My command :
    Sys:boot/amiga/arosbootstrap ROM sys:boot/amiga/aros.hunk.gz
    I used arosbootstrap of CD aros vision amiga and that work! But is not really stable...
    I continue for find a stable combination.

bootstrap _does_ work. its aros.hunk.gz which is corrupted. use aros.elf instead.
  why none ever listens to me..

i have posted 060 aros.elf image on amigadev/aros slack a while ago already.
  of course bootstrap command needs then to be edited to

  Sys:boot/amiga/arosbootstrap ROM sys:boot/amiga/aros.elf

I downloaded your hdf and I'm going to write it to CF and test.

I tried using some bootDelay code in the dosboot_init.c file but without Serial Debug on my V2 running AROS I don't know what it's doing. But it still doesn't boot. Maybe Turtle Mode will work?

After inserting the CF card the V2 went to the Vampire Logo briefly then acted like it was doing something. The Logo disappeared and it seemed to reboot. But it stopped at "no signal" for the monitor and I just hear clicks from the floppy drive. It has been going for about 15min now with no change. How long should I wait in Turtle Mode?
