I am having a problem setting up my IO. Before anybody suggests using the search function, I already have...many times...and found lots of useful info, unfortunatle non of it helped my particular situation. I have several IOs:
winchip c6 (180mhz on chip 200mhz reported)
one set of mini dip switches
several that have not gone thru tutorial
I also have 1 IMOD3 and 1 hitachi DK237A (3.2 gig) HDD, 1 Tosiba MK1926 (810 meg) HDD and 1 (full sized) Conner CFS420 (420 meg) HDD.
My problem is that I cannot get any of my IOs to work with any of these drives (they will not autodetect). I have tries using the drive Geometry reported by the sandisk (15,32,63 and 490,2,32) I also tried setting the drive geometry manually (to drive specs - even tried some suggested on this board) and constantly get disk boot failure (IO boots fine without HDD). Any suggestions?
One more thing. When I install my IMOD3 without a HDD attached, the sandisk disappears and will not autodetect. When I set up the geometry manually, I still get Disk boot failure. Once I remove the I-Mod, everything works great. - Defective I-Mod??? Anybody else try to boot Io with IMOD3 only (no drive attached)?
