Have a look in the guide, chapter 2 IIRC.

You should be able to pass settings to kernel before downloading it, just choose a suitable boot line like

Icaros Desktop (Legacy 800x600 resolution)

and press E. Then have a look into this setting


and kill the @60 part, maybe this is forcing AROS to a video frequency your monitor does not support. To continue booting, press Ctrl+X.

Thanks, but it seems, that you didn't read my comment carefully enough.
I wrote, that using third setting my monitor, well, shows the messages, just OS stops boot process at some particular point. And no: removing "@60" didn't help. As I wrote: I tried Icaros also with the other monitor - which hadn't problems with the frenquencies - and Icaros didn't work there neither.

Anyway IMHO the default settings shouldn't be set to such demanding values, that without reading some manuals it's not possible to take a look at what Icaros offers. Quite opposite: it should have settings "easy for everyone" (well, for the most, at least...), and when one needs something more sophisticated, in such case - after the lecture of manuals etc. - he can change some command-line parameters, selecting higher frequency this way (or whatever).

Sorry, I thought the problem was the video frequency. Unluckily the new kernel is not as tested as the old one (it's much younger), so something may have gone wrong.
