RISC OS 3.5 Original Boot Sequence: Instructions for Installation
This document only covers the RISC OS !Boot sequence originally supplied with the Acorn RiscPC 600 running RISC OS 3.50. It is not applicable to the Universal !Boot Sequence.
Every effort has been made to ensure that the information in this leaflet is true and correct at the time of printing. However, the products described in this leaflet are subject to continuous development and improvements and Acorn Computers Limited reserves the right to change its specifications at any time. Acorn Computers Limited cannot accept liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any information or particulars in this leaflet.

The enclosed disc contains an archived copy of the RISC OS 3.5 !Boot hierarchy, which can be uncompressed and installed on the boot hard disc (usually ADFS::4) should the original be accidentally erased.
To decompress the archive and restore the boot sequence and applications, follow the procedure below:
The "disc1" directory contains two archives; "unarchive.zip" needs to be decompressed and its contents copied to the floppy, rather than just copying the archive. It contains all the necessary support bits for decompressing the other archives on a machine which has no boot sequence or other hard disc resources available.
