Verily I say unto thee, that Bernd Schmidt spake thusly:

I'll give it a spin.

It's set to all zeros as instructed here:

If the specified hard file is an RDB hard file, that is, it's the image
of a partitionable hard drive, you do not need to specify the geometry
(the RDB - the Rigid Disk Block - in the hard file itself specifies the
geometry). If <blocksize> is 0, then the hard file is assumed to be an
RDB hard file. All other components of the hardfile2= option will be
ignored apart from <path> and <access>.





Mine is indeed an RDB hardfile (I have several), and this worked fine
with WInUAE, and still does with E-UAE.

Sorry, no. The kickstart is one of four I've ripped from my real Amigas
(3.1 4000T, 3.1 A500+, 2.04 A500+, 1.3 A500). They all worked fine in
various versions of Win/E/UAE over the years. The only other thing I
could do is step through the debugger, if you think it might reveal
anything useful.
