FA: StrongARM RiscPC, RISC OS 4

Morning all.

Selling my RiscPC. As mentioned it's a StrongARM one with RISC OS 4.
Also has ethernet, 48MB RAM, 2MB VRAM, 1.2G HD, 32x CD ROM, keyboard/mouse.

Yours for 99p! Worth it for the ROMs alone :-)

Thanks

1. FA: RISC OS software and RISC OS 4 ROMs

2. RISC OS 5.17 on an SA RiscPC

I have a RISC OS 4.02 SA RiscPC.

It has a fresh !Boot

I have downloaded the HardDisc Utility, and soft-iomd.5.17.zip archive and decompressed it.

When I install the soft load and reboot, I get a postmortem.

I cannot read what the results are as it boots into RISC OS 4.

If I run ADFS::HardDisc4.$.!Boot.Choices.Boot.PreDesk.!!Softload in a task window I get:

Would you like to softload the new OS (y/N)?
(booting will intinue in 10 seconds)

Yes - softloading...

Softload version 1.13

Internal error: abort on data transfer at &000085F0

Postmortem requested

I am not too surprised to see an error when run like this, but how do I get my machine to boot into RISC OS 5?

Is it possible to do this? or am I forgetting something like it doesn't like StrongARMs?

Cheers
Michael
