This is for emulation purposes? Nice touch. I suppose MacOS 8.1 is supported

Updated and it does not boot from the hd (StarTech CF adapter).
It shows the ApolloRom and the early boot menu does not find any drive other than the fd.
Reverted back to 7319_x13 and everything works fine again.

I believe my A500 boots since there is prolonged CF access. I am trying the Apollo OS image (Release 5B). I get the boot screen if I remove the CF. Unfortunately, there is no display from Vampire's DIGITAL-VIDEO once the boot process finishes. The native Amiga out displays a white screen. Like I said, I assume it is booting from the CF since the access led flashes as usual.

@Allan Versaevel it is slow since this is first beta release but it should boot. I think that on your side problem is with default selected resolution. Try to boot holding shift and you will get ApolloOS on native out then try to change resolution. I had the same problem.

Holding shift works indeed. Like the idea of running the same os on my v4 and v2.
The 1280x720 modes dont seem to work on ApolloOs, but it does work on coffin. Cant seem to find a way to fix this ;(
