Be handy to know the following info first...
Your system set up: ie: Kickstart 3.0 or 3.1, Workbench version, what you've got connected to the FastATA ie: HDs / DVD/ CDs
Have you got anything hooked up via the USB at bootup...
(I only run Posiedon when I need it)
Sounds to me like you'll need to edit your StartUp-Sequence by hand as it can be something as simple as it launching some things in the wrong order. Be handy if you could cut and paste your StartUp-Sequence here, that way I can have a look and even edit it for you...
I'll post my typical StartUp-Sequence in a couple of minutes so you can get an idea of how things should be "launched" in the right order but it could be lot's of different things causing your problems so best to start with the info I asked above...
Kickstart 3.1, WB 3.5, Fast ATA MKIV, CF HDD, NO
CD ROM connected at startup (via USB).
I commented out the ATA3.driver to get it to boot. Here's my StartUp-Sequence file....
Also, I am NOT running IDEFIX.
