Until today I used a Sandisk ExtremeIII SD card with 2.0 GB to run zubuntu via kexecboot kernel which worked like a chrm.

Today I formatted a 4GB Transcend card with ext3 and installed zubuntu on it. The result is somehow demotivating- themultiboot kernel starts, probes mmcblk0p1 and then returns with "no bootable device found". The boot flag is set on the partition.

I tried several things to solve the issue- shrink the partition to 1 GB, copied the root filesystem from the 2GB card- same result.

Interesting: Starting with the 2GB card until the multiboot display appears and then exchanging the SD cards works. So it is not the card itself, propably.

Any clues or similar experience?

I had a similar problem with a 2GB sd card while installing Zubuntu 1. I created a 1GB partition formatted as ext3 and it would not be recognized at boot time.
I re formatted the partition to ext2, and voila, it was back in the boot menu.
Looks like we're stuck with ext2 here.

I have a 4GB Transcend Card that has 4 partitions. 1st is Fat32, 2 are ext3, and last is swap. Both the ext3 partitions are viewed and bootable using both the Angstrom multiboot kernel and the Omegamoon one. So I don't think that the filesystem is the problem.
