The romdisk Project

Boot your Amiga from ROM

Written by Christian Vogelgsang under the GNU Public License V2

This projects provides a romdisk.device you can place in an Amiga Kickstart or external ROM. It will autoboot a disk image that is stored next to the device directly in the ROM. You can either store a raw OFS /FFS disk image (ca. 500 KiB size) or a compressed image that holds up to a whole Amiga disk (ca. 880 KiB size). While the raw storage is ultra fast, the compressed images allow you to deploy whole disks into ROM.

Additionally, a tool for modern systems is available that allows you to create those romdisk image easily from existing .adf disk images or from a directory of files.
