  • I installed the buddha ide on my 4000 and connected a hard disk and on the on board of the 4000 the cdrom and the iomega zip. The 4000 works perfectly and boots regularly. The problem is that the 4000 obviously first scans the integrated ide (cdrom and iomega zip) and then boots from the Buddha Ide. Is there a way to boot directly from the Buddha without scanning the built-in ide of 4000 before?

  • There's no easy way, no. The scsi.device in the Kickstart ROM will always scan for these devices, and it will take it's time (I assume you want to speed up the time for a cold boot).

    Using an A1200 Kickstart may give you a shorter boot time, but you'll also lose the IDE, which I believe is not your goal :-)

    Maybe you can move one of the devices to the Buddha and have the boot device on the internal IDE? This will also reduce boot time. Speed-wise, the two controllers are about equal.
