I have a rather strange problem with my CFFA boot drive.
I purchased a V1.2 CFFA card several months ago and have been using it happily in my Rom 3 IIGS for a while now.
However, due to an unrelated problem (flaky floppy controller) I switched motherboards yesterday and am now having issues on bootup.
In particular, when I boot up GS/OS 6.0.1 on my CFFA card, I get messages such as "Sorry, system error $0027 occurred while loading the FST file HFS.FST" I also get errors about loading the files T2 and T3 but with less frequently.
After much trial and error (and reinstalling and restoring) I found out the issue was not due to an I/O error but rather only happens when the CompactFlash driver is present in the Drivers folder.
If I take it out, the system boots fine, but then I cannot see my last large drive or get the speed benefits of the driver.
The CompactFlash drivers boots fine with my old motherboard. Both motherboards are ROM3 and I am using the same cards in each.
I am using a V1.2 CFFA card with a SanDisk 512MB compact flash card.
I also have a ZipGS running at 9Mhz and a ~6MB Applied Engineering RAM card in the RAM slot. I have tried setting the slots speed of the CFFA card to both normal and fast and it doesn't seem to matter.
I have also tried switching slots for the CFFA (1,4,7) but to no avail.
As long as I take this driver out, the CFFA card works fine for the first four drives. But I would really like to get this running properly and have access to all of the space on the flash card.
Has anybody else experienced this?
Any light anyone can shed on this matter is greatly appreciated.
