Alternatives to the AmigaOS 3.9 CD Alternatives to the AmigaOS 3.9 CD Introduction This tutorial explains some alternative methods of making it possible to install AmigaOS 3.9 on a real Amiga by using the Emergency Disk II boot floppy, and it's mainly intended for those who doesn't have a CD-ROM drive connected to their Amiga. The tutorial is really not completely finished yet, among other things, it will in the future include some instructions on how to make a customized AmigaOS 3.9 ISO image. Let's start off by debunking a couple of myths that seems to be floating around: Myth 1: The AmigaOS 3.9 CD contains copy protection. This is not true, and I belive there are two reasons why some people seem to think so. The first one is the fact that although it's possible to browse the CD on a Windows PC, there will be problems when trying to copy all files from it. But what causes this isn't copy protection, no it's quite simply because Windows doesn't 100% support the file system used on the CD (there are problems with international characters in the file names for example).
The second reason has to do with the Boing Bag updates. Upon installing them, the installer will ask the user to insert the AmigaOS 3.9 CD, and then it will try to verify if it's a genuine CD by simply checking for the presence of certain files on it. One example of the files that will be checked, is the AmigaOS3.9:Videos/Angels.avi file, and if it's missing, the installer will complain. Myth 2: You need the AmigaOS 3.9 CD for installing AmigaOS 3.9.
