I guess you were both right : I tried many possible combinations of load-base/real-base, with no success...

Of course, but I can remember I had to change the real-base on an older mac because the kernel was too big (OF was not changed, but affected)

Maybe I'll have to keep a MacOS partition :-(, but I still want to try some things :
- in OF, when I 'dev' to '/pci/mac-io/ide@20000' (first ide) and 'ls' there, i get the following :
and I would have expected:
/disk@0,0 (master)
/disk@1,0 (slave)
could this confuse quik ?
- do the limitations listed there :
still apply ?
- I noticed the presence of a quik-1.3.1.tar.gz  at http://www.cpu.lu/~mlan/ftp/
Is this version still pertinent ? I use quik 2.0... could the changes have break something ?
I just want to be sure to try everything before using BootX...
