This is a straight forward process and, unlike the i-series upgrades, you cannot destroy your keyboard, however it is important to back up all your USER data first.

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) if you wish to clear your PA1XPro before the installation....
The general download area for the PA1X OS/Resources is here
http://www.korgpa.com/pa_root/en/extra/korgstory_Pa1X.html?en NO LONGER AVAILABLE HERE - PM me
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Download the following file to your PC from:
http://www.korgpa.com/pa_root/software/history/os/pa1x/Pa1X_os_v301_PC.zip NO LONGER AVAILABLE HERE - PM me
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"

If you want to check the contents of the diskettes they should be like this:-
    On diskette 1:
    FDBOOT.SYS
    PA1X_1.BIN

    On diskette 2:
    PA1X_2.BIN
    On diskette 3:
    PA1X_3.BIN
    On diskette 4:
    PA1X_4.BIN

    and so on

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 press the "Intro 1" button
INSTEAD of pressing the "OK" on the screen if you wish to 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 see a "no style" and no sounds - this is OK.
MAKE SURE YOU RE-CALIBRATE THE TOUCH SCREEN NOW (seems to always be necessary when installing OS3.01)
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/history/preload/pa1x/Pa1X_res_v300_hd.zip NO LONGER AVAILABLE HERE - PM me

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.
(If you do not have a hard drive you can create Resources diskettes - see:-
http://www.korgpa.com/pa_root/software/history/preload/pa1x/Pa1X_res_v300_fd.zip NO LONGER AVAILABLE HERE - PM me for the "FD" version for the PC or
http://www.korgpa.com/pa_root/en/extra/korgstory_Pa1X.html?en NO LONGER AVAILABLE HEREfor other versions (Mac etc..)

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
