I've tried again with a fresh install of RPCEmu 0.8.9, running on Win7
HP 32bit. Starting with 4.39 rom-image, and boot sequence, I ran the
6.20 Install application, aborting prior to installation of the rom. I
then copied the 6.20 rom-image to RPCEmu\roms, on the Windows side, and
to !Boot.Softload, on the RISC OS side. All this is, I believe, as you
described it earlier. However, on re-booting, the sequence stops, as
before, with the same Error: DataAbort: Abort on data transfer at
&0380BE64 (Error number &80000002). Maybe I've misunderstood something.

Has anyone else succeeded in running 6.20?
