32. First Quit WinUAE by pressing F12, then go to the misc Properties and click quit winuae. (Called 'Quit' in Winuae 0.8.22r5) or the bottom left Quit button in WinUAE 0.8.26.

33. Next, via windows, make a new directory in C:\Program Files\Winuae\Hard Disks and name it i.e. temp

34. Now re-launch the program, left click the config you made and click the Load button, then go back to the Hard Drives Properties.

35. Click Add Directory...

36. In Volume Name: type in temp

37. In Path type C:\Program Files\WinUAE\Hard Disks\temp (or click ‘...’ button and point to this directory) And then click OK.

38. Select Disk Drives (previously known as Floppies) Properties.

39. On the DF0: slot click the ‘...’ button on the right and select your Workbench v1.3.3 A.D.F (Amiga Disk File).

40. Then Click OK (Start in Winuae 0.9.90) to start the emulation.

41. When the Amiga has booted you should see Ram Disk, temp (this is a blank HD directory) and Workbench1.3

42. Double click on Workbench1.3

43. Double click on shell

44. Type in: COPY L:fastfilesystem temp: and press Return/Enter.

45. Then Type in: endcli and press Return/Enter.

46. Quit WinUAE by pressing F12, then go to the misc Properties and click 'Quit Winuae' button. (Called 'Quit' in Winuae 0.8.22r5)

47. Now via windows, go to the directory in C:\Program Files\Winuae\Hard Disks\temp and move the fastfilesystem file to your Roms folder (by selecting the fastfilesystem file, go to edit>cut on the menu, go to the Roms i.e. C:\Program Files\Winuae\Roms directory then go to edit>paste on the menu.)

Why do I need to copy fastfilesystem to my Roms directory? Because without this file the HDF will not show up in Workbench 1.3. See this thread on EAB.

(If you downloaded your pre-formatted HDF then skip to Chapter 2)

48. Now re-launch the Winuae program, left click the config you made and click the Load button.

49. Select Disk Drives (previously known as Floppies) Properties.

50. On the DF0: slot click the ‘...’ button on the right and select your Workbench v1.3.3 A.D.F (Amiga Disk File).

51 Go to ROM Properties and click ‘...’ button and set the path to your kick-start 2.x ROM File. Then click OK/Start to start the emulation.

52. When the Amiga has booted you should see Ram Disk, DH0:NDOS (this is your blank HDF) and Workbench1.3

53. Left click once on DH0:NDOS to select.

54. Now go to the top of the screen and hold your right mouse button down.

55. Hover your mouse over Icons and then to Format Disk...

56. When Format Disk... is highlighted let go of the right mouse button.

57. When Please insert disk to be initialized in drive in DH0: shows, click Continue.

60. Delete the word Empty and type in WB1.3 then click ok.

61. Press F12 Go to ROM Properties and click ‘...’ button and set the path to your kick-start 1.3 ROM File.

62. Go to Misc Properties and click on Reset Amiga. (Just click reset button at bottom left in WinUAE 0.8.26)

63. Now you are ready to follow Chapter 2
