Unable to boot from compact flash or HDD other than hold down right mouse button to get operating system to load on A500+, any help would be appreciated.

Is the partition bootable?
Any there any error messages?
What modules are you loading?
What version is vampire core?

Hi Peter,

the Vampire core is 2.5 with no error messages just no display when trying to boot.Workbench 3.1 works as normal on boot but only the r43 disk image installed on a compact flash card 32gb or hdd 60gb refuses to boot unless the right mouse button is pressed.Under the boot options only DH1 indicates as being non bootable, boot priority shows
DH2 0, DH0 1, DH1 not bootable.

Thank you for your quick reply,

Keven Wallace

Problem resolved, changed display monitor, the older monitor would not accept  any settings via hdmi. this might be useful to any new Vampire users as very little information is available at the moment.
