MFE Distro SD boot

Post by yamaharacer » Mon Apr 05, 2010 4:16 pm

Hello,
i have got a problem. I searched the whole day on the internet how i can start mfe distro without burning a disk just by booting everything from the SD card. Then I have found several sides which linked me to tehskeen, but tehskeen is dead.
Al this sides said something about mortimor mfe distro. I have found this distro and tryed to run it on my cube but it doesnt work. It ends with an i/o error dev sdslotn or something and stops loading.

Does anybody know how I get this thing working?

no problem its a spanish site:

could it be that this software just loads of slota but when it boots it recognizes that the sd card is in slotb.

ok I resoldered it on slota but it still doesnt work.
i have a viper gc extreme installed with that chip i start sdload. after that i load mortboot.dol. in the root of the sd card is the mfe-fs.bz2 data. but it still ends with the same error only with sdslota instead of sdslotb.

If you're using a SDHC Card it's probably not going to work.

thats what i was going to say, since this is a linux standard error...otherwise it might be the filesystem on the sdcard?
