Hi All,

I am new to this forum! I just brought a C3100 and was hoping to get OpenZaurus running on it, but it kill my HDD and my ROM.

Anyone here have a original back copy of the C3100 HDD?

Please help me out.


Thanks in Advance,

Abum

Abum,

the SL-C3100 HDD contains nothing important. All the stuff
there (demo pictures, dictionary files, map files, books'n'stuff)
are also on the 3 CDs that came with the device.

But even with a fresh formatted HDD, a SL-C3100 will boot
without problems. So, if your Zaurus won't boot anymore, it
will be a different problem.

Can you access the Flashmenu ?
If Yes -> Try restore to factory defaults
if No -> Can you access the Diag ?
Yes -> Make a NAND restore
No -> Post more informations.

Hi Marc,
I to nuked my Z when installing OpenBSD. I have booted using D+B and it looks like the hdd is blank. fdisk shows no partitions! When the Z boots normally (Or not) I get HDD1 error! I tried a Reset (Power on with "OK" option 3 and option 1) But I still get the error. I have also done a NAND restore and get the same problem. It looks like part of the boot process tries to mount the MD. If what you are say about the 3100 is correct then the OpenBSD must have altered the boot process to point at HDD1. But why will a RESET and a NAND restore not fix this? Is there some magic command I can type to restore my DEAD Z ? sad.gif Also can you detail the 3100 boot process?

Regards
Paul

Paul,

there're actually two threads for the same problem.
