pc 40df1200 fpscr 00000000

to be precise it does boot i get the grey screen with the little smilling mac then i get the bigger welcome screen for like half a sec and poof thats it

ok tryed three form of ramdrive formating fat32 ,ntfs ,ntfs-c with out result
also tryed all ram size from 32mb to 128mb cannot go further as this would be more then the ramdisk permits me due to the 700mb size of my hdd but i could always make a 1gig ramdrive as i have 1.5 gig of ram

my pref file

extfs c:
disk install.hfv
disk MacOS.HFV
rom MacOSROM.rom
windowmodes 7
screenmodes 63
seriala FILE
serialb FILE
bootdrive 0
bootdriver 0
ramsize 67108864
frameskip 0
gfxaccel true
nocdrom false
nonet true
nosound true
nogui true
noclipconversion false
ignoresegv false
jit true
jit68k false
keyboardtype 5
keycodes true
mousewheelmode 1
mousewheellines 3
idlewait true
enableextfs true


ok sometime you do thing and you feel dumb about it the thing and here is what was my problem the install.hfv that i used at first was the install.hfv from my basiliskII installation so i finally got to boot 9.0.4 and did some benchmark with the install on the hdd and the one on the ramdisk and here is what i got
*********basilisk score old build*********
the ram disk gave me

as for the hdd

**********basilisk score new build from nov 2005******
these were done with speedometer 4.02

and you feel even dumber when you realize that writing all those number on a small piece of paper will make you do mistake here are the number for sheepshaver the other were for basiliskII

the bench

these were done with speedometer 4.02

those were done with ppc code runing the bench with 68k code resulted in score 10% to 20% lower

also it is worth noting that the math score for basilisk was better in the ramdisk while it is the opposite in sheepshaver
