I’ve loaded the CF card image (beta 7) on a CF card as per instructions (using gunzip and dd) but my mini-pc will not load the OS. I only see “GRUB” at the top left corner of the screen and a flashing cursor. Doesn’t go any further.
The box is an ebox-3852
( http://www.wdlsystems.com/downloads/specs/1EBOX52_s.pdf )
Has an Onboard VIA EDEN Nano 800Mhz (Fanless) and Support Compact Flash Socket ( 50-pin CF Card)

I’d probably try reloading the image to CF. It sounds like something got corrupted. I’m booting from CF also and had something similar happen on my first try. Since you are getting to the point you specified it appears that the bios boot order is correctDecember 15, 2007 at 7:23 am #46062
Try with the WRAP compact flash version. It has a newer Grub release.

I tried both image versions. Still no go. I continue to get the GRUB letters at the top left of the screen and a flashing cursor.
I noticed a thread (see link below) that might help but I’m unsure on how to try what he’s done.

I don’t think you have the same problem.December 17, 2007 at 7:14 pm #46065
Thanks for the reply Fulvio.
I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong. Here’s a breakdown of my steps:
1. Downloaded CF card image to USB stick (from a WinXP PC)
2. Boot another PC with Knoppix.
3. This PC is equipped with a monitor that has a CF card reader.
4. The 512M industrial CF card is plugged in the monitor’s card port and my USB stick is plugged in a usb port before I boot with Knoppix.
5. I copy the compressed (downloaded image) to the local hardrive (this PC has WinXP on its hard drive but I’m booted using Knoppix LiveCD)
6. Using gunzip I decompress the image
7. Using dd, I copy the image over the the CF card (seen as /dev/sdc1)
8. Power off the PC and uplug the CF card
9. Plug the CF card into the mini-pc and power it up.
10. You know the rest.
I’ve tried this with both images and even tried dd for windows. I haven’t tried older versions of ZeroShell.
Any hints ?

Please, post the complete dd command with the parameters.
I suspect you write the image in a partition /dev/sdc1 and not inthe entire device /dev/sdc, right?

Ahhhh, you were right. I had typed sdc1 instead of sdc …
OMG I feel stupid now … I guess it’s good to be humbled every now and then. 🙂
Anyways, thanks so much for your help.
