Hello,

Is it possible or has anyone ever tried to use the AV500 as an USB hard drive for booting Linux or Windows XP from it when it is attached to a PC that supports booting from USB?

Any tipps how to approach this would be very welcome.

My first worry is that I might loose the standard mult media functions on the AV500 or that it even does not start at all anymore when I start messing with it.

As a start I ran testdisk and found already some special things in respect to the formatting of the hardrive on the AV500. In the FAT it says 240 heads/cylinders instead of 255 and the partition is marked as primary bootable but it isn't.

TestDisk 6.4, Data Recovery Utility, June 2006
Disk /dev/sdb - 99 GB / 92 GiB - CHS 12128 255 63
Current partition structure:
Partition Start End Size in sectors
check_FAT: Incorrect number of heads/cylinder 240 (FAT) != 255 (HD)
1 P FAT32 LBA 0 1 1 12127 254 63 194836257 [AV500]
No partition is bootable

TestDisk 6.4, Data Recovery Utility, June 2006
Disk /dev/sdb - 99 GB / 92 GiB - CHS 12128 255 63
Partition Start End Size in sectors
* FAT32 LBA 0 1 1 12127 254 63 194836257 [AV500]

Structure: Ok. Use Up/Down Arrow keys to select partition.
Use Left/Right Arrow keys to CHANGE partition characteristics:
*=Primary bootable P=Primary L=Logical E=Extended D=Deleted
Keys A: add partition, L: load backup, T: change type, P: list files,

Any tipps are most welcome.
