Hi Guys.

I have followed the instructions from the TRISoft howto restore HD to the letter but still getting the dreaded HDD1 Error!!

Just to sum up, I wiped the drive, used fdisk to make 3 primary partitions, formated them as instructed, created .sys dir's on hda1 and hda2 and copied the files into them. Still getting a HDD1 Error!!

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I read on one of the threads that pressing CTRL+C+D will bypass the HDD1 Error!! but when I do the Z simply counts from 5 to 0 and reboots.

I found a GREAT walk trough here: http://figlabs.com/restore/ and now have a fully working Zaurus with original software in Japanese happy.gif

Thought I would put the update here as the above link was not easy to find.

It is -extremely- important to do the following when formatting the hard disks --- mke2fs -j --- If you do not enable journaling on the filesystem, you will get the HDD Error. If you do not copy the files into a .sys directory on each drive, you will get the HDD error. The Zaurus C3x00 is really picky about this, when using the Cacko/Sharp rom.

So, remember:

First partition (/dev/hda1) is cylinders 1-20 type 83
Second partition (/dev/hda2) is cylinders 21-40 type 83
Third partition (/dev/hda3) is the rest of the drive, type c

What if you format ext3? I assume that since ext3 is a journaling fs (I think it's actually just ext2 + journaling) you shouldn't need to do anything additional. Let me know if I'm wrong, because if I am, then I probably fscked up my drive. blink.gif
