Re: Updating a Riscos installation in Pi3

The best way to update your Pi3 if you haven’t got system disc is to download a complete new Image and write it to a new SDXC card but the image is only 2Gb, but this will give you a working copy with all the required files in place. The system uses EDID to set your monitor up see this page https://...

Re: Firmware changes?

The whole idea is to create a working system from an existing release candidate this being RC 14 as the user already has a Pi 1 It's a simple task to update it to work on the Pi 3 which is the whole point of the question. The size limit is something that we cannot control this is set by the image if...

Re: Firmware changes?

Sorry to but in but the last post is incorrect RC14 image will run on the Pi3 3 But you have to change the firmware. As you have a Pi1 one your best option is to create an image using the RC 14 image file write this to an SDcard use a small one in an Micro SD adapter so that you can use it later in ...

Re: Connecting RISC PC hard disc to Ras Pi

The Risc PC IDE port will take two devices running in master slave configuration on one cable ( be careful about the cable not to long), but you do need to check the drive types because some of the early drives Connor i think (been a long time so hard to remember) don't like western digital drives, ...

Re: Trouble installing RISCOS on Pi3

So you said in your last post that Bad news: stuck with perpetually filling hourglass. This is caused by the Zero page build of the OS that you are using and you will need to retrieve the image4.zip that I ask you to save at step Six in the loader folder inside !Boot on the SD card. So let us begin ...
