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

Thanks trisoft,

I had been running OpenBSD and had blown away my partitions and needed an easy restore method.

By the way, for those not familiar with fdisk, just boot into linux (b+d on reboot) and do fdisk /dev/hda. Delete your existing partitions with 'd'. Create new partitions with 'n', all primary. Set types with 't' according to the readme in the trisoft file. Exit with 'w' when done, but print with 'p' to check before. When you're done with your partition table, run the mkfs/mke2fs commands in the readme. Mount the /dev/hda1 /dev/hda2 partitions with 'mount /dev/hd# /hdd#' where # is 1 or 2. Then for each drive 'mkdir /hdd#/.sys' and 'cp -r /mnt/cf/hdd#sys /hdd#/.sys' to restore the drive contents (assuming your CF card is mounted on /mnt/cf. Use /mnt/card if you're doing SD). Reboot into your ROM installer and you should be OK.

After 2 days of goose-chasing a bad SD card I was finally ready to install a ROM and then to my horror realized my partitions were gone, and much to my relief, trisoft came to the rescue. biggrin.gif

Thanks very much for the guide for newbies like me - I needed the extra help. Just in case anyone else is struggling, however, may I with all humility point out the typo (or at least it seems to be a typo) where you refer to "mount /dev/hd#", and I suspect it should be "mount /dev/hda#". At least, it worked for me that way.
Thanks again,
Mark

Thanks Trisoft! You guys rock! smile.gif

One thing that I'd like to add is that along with the missing partitions on the hard drive that needed to be repaired (my fault), the CF card had a messed up partition table and would not only not mount itself, but kept my SD card from mounting as well (this is where I had all of the files needed to fix my HD stored). Removing the card fixed the problem.

Today I found the partition problem (BTW, the card would format just fine in linux and Windows). I deleted the partitions and recreated the one partition and formatted it. Seems to work just fine.
