Hello,

I have 3100 that I am trying to install Zubunt. Ihave tries numerous different SD cards and everytime I boot with them it states no SD card found. Here is the process I followed:

Format 1 4gb SD ext2, install/extract the root and desktop files to it. No issues

Format another 4 gb SD as Fat and places the Zimage.bin and updater.sh files to it. I boot off this SD.

What am I missing. I have read Omegamoon website thuroughly and cannot find what I am missing.

Thank you for any comments good or bad.

It's been a while since I installed Zubuntu though I use it daily . . .

Have you tried putting the Fat stuff on a CF card? I don't remember the SD being formatted fat. I do vaguely remember that the sd card was a no go in a situation where the CF worked, and perhaps it was with this initial startup stuff.

Good luck.

I have a CF card but do not have way to read or write to it. I don't have a universal card reader or port to read it.

Do you need the fat files if you don't want the multiboot function? Can you just do 1 sd with the desktop/root extracted to a EXT2/3 SD


Thank you for your response and help.
