Great news! Will update tonight!

Please confirm: V2.2 now supports an OS re-install, right?

Yes, for "non-destructive" re-install you use the Update Menu.

For complete clean install there is now the Erase menu to clean partition.

So, let me know how it works out for you!

I actually meant whether this update supports re-installing a particular Amiga OS.

That also wat I meant :-)

So, if you for example wan't to do re-install of AOS31, then you now can choose "Update" and then "AOS31" and it will do a re-install of AOS31 without deleting the partition.

But if you wan't a complete clean install of AOS31 you choose "Erase" and the "AOS31" to clear the partition completely, so you can then click "AOS31" in main V4BL menu to start a fresh AOS31 installation.

Hi Tim,

My bad, your registration has come through, but somehow your access link and mail were not sent.

Please check your mailbox and enjoy V4BL.

Let me know wat you think of it. Have FUN.

Hello Willem,

i can't install Apollo OS.. I put the image on SD Card and start the installation... V4BL can't mount the SD Card.. when  take the same SD Card for Coffin or EmuTos, it works. Have you any idea?

Thx for help

Christoph
