Booting a Qube 2700 from hard disk
Well, it's the better developemt for the Qube I've seen in a lot of
time... thank you for your work!!
I've followed Martin Michlmayr's intructions on how to boot Debian in a
Qube 2700 without serial console, connecting the hard disk to a host
computer, with little modifications from the mips-debian list:
mkfs.ext2 -r0 /dev/hdc1
mount /dev/hdc2 /mnt
mount /dev/hdc1 /mnt/boot
mkdir /mnt/proc /mnt/home
[download and verify base.tar.bz2]
tar xvfj base.tar.bz2
When I install the hard disk to the qube, without network wire connected,
it sometimes shows the first menu list (CONSOLE STATE) and sometimes not.
The LCD sequence is:
CONSOLE STATE -> Console Off
BOOT SELECTION -> Disk (hda)
! UNIT BOOT FAILED !
