OK. I've been reading the posts about writing the image to a HD and booting off that,
so I'm prettysure I did it right. Booted into linux dd'd IMAGE.IMG to /dev/hda,
used the cable from my other iop to hook the drive up...and
boot disk failure.
I've got a gooped bios, and the sans-serifed i-Opener boot image, so I'm guessing V2.
Assuming the bios has not been flashed..
Connect the 2.5" to the I-opener, and turn on. Press TAB several times to reveal the BIOS information. Make sure the BIOS detects your drive as primary slave, and that the SanDisk is not detected. If this is not the case, turn off the I-opener and change the jumper setting on the hard drive before you power up again. Once the BIOS only has detected your hard drive correctly, press ctrl-alt-esc on the keyboard to enter the BIOS.
In the first menu, change the primary master IDE drive to NONE, and the primary slave to USER. For the USER drive, manually set 490 cylinders, 2 heads, 32 sectors. In the next menu, set the boot order to D, A, SCSI.
Save the settings and reboot.
If that doesn't work, try the Dos & dolly method.
