As an academic exercise, as I am learning how to build CE platforms, I decided to choose the Gateway connected TouchPad as I have one lying around. I managed to build an image and it can boot to it. The keyboard and mouse works but the display is small and the audio and mini-pci card does not work. Does anyone want to join in the fun just for the kicks. See the thread on News on where to get the WinCE .NET evaluation Kit. It's quite easy.
How are you getting the image over onto the CF card? It seems that the platform builder wants you to transfer directly to the GCT instead of via a CF writer. I've been tinkering with CE .NET for a couple of hours, but am still very new to it....
I used a harddisk for this purpose. My GTCP has an IDE connector soldered on by the previous owner.
I have not tried the CF way yet. I want to use the harddisk to get it to work first before tranfering the image to a CF card. To use a harddisk, do this:
On another PC make the setup disk using the setup.144 image
then boot with this floppy. after booting to the DOS prompt, fdisk and format the hard disk.
The do mkdisk.bat c: from the setup floppy.
After that somehow copy the Nk.bin file to the harddisk root directory.
Put the harddisk into the GCTP and it will boot.
