RE: Cobalt RaQ2

I just have find out what was wrong.
If the disk already was used in a windows machine it just don't work!
I have tried the same thing on a new disk (80Gb) and it works fine!
Then I have tried it again wit a old HD and .... nope. It don't boot!
It seems to bee the same problem as with the XboX
Now I have tried the same installation with a RaQ3 AND a new HD and it works!!
Even with a low level format it won't boot
Write the disk with full with zero's with Dd ... it won't boot afther the installation.
Very strange, but...
I think that Cobalt only want to work with a virgin ;-)

Thanks a lot!

 - Can you check whether the "bootable" flash is set on the boot
   partition (i.e. the first partition).

 - Can you boot CoLo from the network (as you did for the installation)
   and then tell it to start Linux from disk.  Does this work?

 - Do you have a serial console?  If so, what does it say?

 - Do you have a smaller disk?  Some people claim disks over 30 GB
   don't work for them.
