Re: Cobalt Qube 2

What about putting the disk from the working install in an USB closure and dd'ing it to the disk of the non working Qube2.
If I recall correctly, there used to be a root image you could dd to the disk of the Qube2 (using an USB closure for example) in case you didn't have enough memory to startup the installer (apparently this does not exist anymore :( ). This is how I installed my Qube2 a long time ago :)

in fact it deffinately is - this is from the self diagnostics before
it's tried to boot:

pci: unit type <Qube2>
>> tulip: {00:10:e0:00:bf:04}

and this is from my dhcpd.conf:

hardware ethernet 00:10:e0:00:bf:04;

though for some reason my original post showed both as the same in
dhcpd.conf - I will double check tomorrow but I'm certain it's
