Please help, am I missing something? Pa1x has NO hdd and Pa1xpro HAS hdd. So if Pa1x has NO hdd where the hell is the OS and MS installed? I remember from past topics of the matter on the forum that everybody was talking about installing OS and MS on hdd. So where you install OS and MS on Pa1x if you don't have hdd? Sorry if this topic is outdated but it is quite interesting.

I think there is a small amount of Flash Memory to store OS plus User Registrations. I had the Pa1x pro at one stage and like you I found it difficult to get my head around what was happening under the hood.
Come to think of it I'm still not sure exactly what happens on my Pa3x which doesn't have an old fashioned hard drive but does come with a USB stick hot-glued inside! I was always confused why they used such a tiny (I think it was close to 2gb) stick so I replaced mine with a 32gb one and it works fine (I did have to re-install the package files) and all the memory is available! So why the hell would I need the model with the Hard Disk.

As an interesting side note - the 3x comes with 128mb of Ram plus a back-up battery to keep user samples available. But if the battery goes flat or is taken out the Ram gets loaded automatically and I have also wondered how it knows to do this and when it last took a copy of the Ram to store in the internal USB.
Korg keeps it as a mystery.

I think its like modern cars - don't ask how it works - just drive it!

on the pa3x the usb drive was 4Gb and you are right the OS was there, you can take it out and look at it on a computer if you like and for the sample on boot up it the os see the battery is dead the os know ( you will see the led blink ) so if battery is dead os will load the ram ,, and if you shut down the keyboard you see a dim screen for a little time ... that the time were it save , house clearn up..
if you do sample and do not save it wile in the sample mode you will lose ,just that one sample..
but
your are right
don't ask how it works - just play it!
