I have my PA1 Xpro loaded with version 2.5. Tried several times upgrade to 3.0.1. Changed floppies/formated it/saved again - nothing happened. Floppy's control light greens for a second; then machine loading with same old version.

Cannot understand what's wrong!!!

thanks for any help

Hi Bulo

This means that your PA1X is not recognizing the diskette 1 as a boot diskette.
Did you create the diskettes by executing the diskette build programs. Some people in the past have simply copied the files directly to diskette - this does not work. Hopefully it is not a problem your diskette drive.

Here are the instructions - hope this helps:-

SAVE ALL YOUR USER DATA FIRST...

You may already have the diskettes prepared etc but here are the details anyway.
MAKE SURE YOU OBEY THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR DISKETTE #1 AND PRESS "Intro 1" INSTEAD OF THE "OK" ON THE SCREEN (see below) - this
will clear your PA1XPro before the installation....
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download the following file to your PC from:-
http://www.korgpa.com/pa_root/software/pa1x/os/Pa1X_os_v301_PC.zip

Unzip this file and you will see 5 files like this:-
Pa1X_os_v301_Dsk1.exe
Pa1X_os_v301_Dsk2.exe
Pa1X_os_v301_Dsk3.exe
Pa1X_os_v301_Dsk4.exe
Pa1X_Upgrade_Procedures.pdf (instructions)

I strongly recommend that you read the "Pa1X_Upgrade_Procedures.pdf" upgrade
instructions in conjunction with the steps below...

Prepare 4 blank diskettes
Insert first diskette and double click Pa1X_os_v301_Dsk1.exe
...this will build diskette 1
Remove the diskette when finished and label it "OS3.01 Disk #1"
Insert second diskette and double click Pa1X_os_v301_Dsk2.exe
...this will build diskette 2
Remove the diskette when finished and label it "OS3.01 Disk #2"
Insert third diskette and double click Pa1X_os_v301_Dsk3.exe
...this will build diskette 3
Remove the diskette when finished and label it "OS3.01 Disk #3"
Insert fourth diskette and double click Pa1X_os_v301_Dsk4.exe
...this will build diskette 4
Remove the diskette when finished and label it "OS3.01 Disk #4"

These four diskettes will be used to build your OS 3.01

Make sure the PA1XPro is powered OFF
Insert OS3.01 Disk #1
Power on PA1XPro
Follow the prompts on the screen
(Note: for diskette #1 you MUST press the "Intro 1" button
INSTEAD of pressing the "OK" on the screen - this will clear your PA1XPro before building the new OS)
The remaining 3 diskettes will be prompted for and all you do is simply insert them when requested.
When finished loading all diskettes, power OFF the PA1XPro.

Remove diskettes and Power ON the PA1XPro
The keyboard should start up but you will not see a "no style" and no sounds - this is OK.

Now you must load the OS Resources file into the PA1XPro

Download the resources file to your PC from:-
http://www.korgpa.com/pa_root/software/pa1x/resource/Pa1X_res_v300_hd.zip

Unzip the file (using folder names) and you will end up with a folder on your PC called "pa1x_300.bkp"
Connect your PA1XPro to your PC (USB) and copy this folder to your PA1XPro hard drive.

Disconnect your PA1XPro from your PC
Go to the PA1XPro Disk > Utility page and select “Full Resource Restore”, then press "Execute".
The hard disk contents will appear..
At this point, select the “pa1x_300.bkp” folder you previously copied to the hard disk.
At the end of the Restore operation, turn the Pa1X off and then on again.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All should be OK.

Cheers & good luck

Pete Very Happy

Appreciated your help, Pete! That was my mistake: I just copied extracted files to diskettes and tried to install. I followed up your instruction and will upgrade OS as soon as I get home after work.

Thanks a lot!

Hi there.

I've read this whole post and everything is understandable. Only one question. My PA1X doesn't have a build in Hard Drive. How do I do a resources thing then?

Thanks

BTW. Mine still has got Version 1.52 or 1.54 installed. Not 100% sure.

Thanks for the info. I've seen it there but wasn't sure how the floppy one will work.

I'll probably get myself a Hard drive anyway.

Thanks again.

Hi guys.

I've just updated the OS. Now I'm just busy restoring the resources.

So far so good.
