    Hi at all,

    I tried to install ZeroShell (beta 16, also tried beta 15, beta 14 beta 9) on my ALIX 2D3 board ( http://www.pcengines.ch/alix2d3.htm ). Writing the image on the compact flash card (4GB) with physdiskwrite was not a problem (tree new partitions createt by the image as described in other threads).

    However powering on my ALIX I get the message via consol

    Can anybody help, what am I doing wrong?

    Using monwall http://m0n0.ch/wall/ the ALIX works just fine.

    Thanks a lot,

    This device again is working fine with monowall…

    I saw zeroshell advertised with a ALIX 2d13 board , I understand it is simply the ALIX 2d3 with added batterie, so it is working on the ALIX 2d structure.

    What is my mistake?

    Please help, anyone any idea?

    Thanks a lot,

    Problem solved 😆

    short:
    using a 2GB CF card ZeroShell strats up on the ALIX 2d3 now.

    long:
    OK, after quite some sophisticated idea ping-pong with a friend, we figgured trying a smaler CompactFlash card. They are hard to find in local stores these days, but finaly I could get my hand on a 2GB CF card. This CF is from the same brand as the 4 GB CF I tryed before. And with this 2 GB CF ZeroShell fired up and runs smothly on my ALIX 2d3 while I am writing these lines. I have not tried the 2GB CF card on the ALIX 2c3 yet.

    So it seems, the ALIX 2c3 and 2d3 do not like lange CF cards. I don#t cnow about the bios or the firmware of these ALIX boards. However the ALIX 2d13 ais advertised with a 4 GB CF crad running ZeroShell and other software, PC Engines The developer of the ALIX boards)has donated the 2d13 board a smal update. If there is realy a size limitation I don’t know.

    So hoping this might help some other frustrated hobbyist…
    I am looking forward having fun seting up my new ZeroShell ALIX…

    Bye
