Re: [irlp-embedded] Re: Install Image
- I could, but it would need to go onto a 256M Transcend flash drive with
the exact same bit count as the ones I use. For some reason some of the
other models have different sized boot sector, and the DOS partition
that launches the whole thing fails to initialize. Even when I tried to
transition the 128M drives I used to use to the 256M, I had to basically
rebuild the whole image from scratch, as writing the 128M image to a
256M drive failed.
I would also offer no support as to how to transition the PGP key, etc,
because it does not follow the standard IRLP format of using a backup
Chris, I have tried this before twice, and it did not work with the
client's equipment. I do not offer it as a download because I can not
support it on hardware I do not configure myself.
What size of DOMs do you have?
