In 2018 we got a surprise from Hyperion with the release of AmigaOS 3.1.4. for our Classic Amigas. In 2021 they gave us AmigaOS 3.2! An updated OS for our 1980s machines in 2021.
I ordered the KickStart ROMs and WorkBench disks for my Amiga 2000B Rev 6.2 and my Amiga 4000/040. The other Amigas in my collection I leave original as much as possible.
The upgrade process is very easy. In my A4000 I have a CD-ROM but I installed it via WinUAE on my CF Card which was even more convenient.
The software upgrade went very good. I had only 2 issues:
- My Startup-sequence was not upgraded but renamed to .OLD resulting in X-Boot not starting anymore but changing that again works like a charm
- If I have X-Bench in my startup-sequence the colors of the background image doesn’t appear correctly, like it misses some colors. This was in WinUAE but also on my A4000.
I had these issues when installing the ROMs:
- When I installed the 3.2 ROMs some of my CF cards wouldn’t boot because of missing libraries, manually add them from 3.2 disk solved it.
I order it via https://www.retro-updates.com/product/4582867/amigaos-3-2-preorder (no sponsoring or affiliation) but this is located in The Netherlands so shipping was for me the best option here. Good software deserves support! Local support.
UPDATE: AmigaOS 3.2.1 Update is available!
