Re: Please report any SD boot success
I got a new fit-PC2i the other day (don't know what version, but I assume it's recent) and now have it booting Fedora 13 from a micro-SDHC card in a mini-adapter in the slot. The card is an 8GB class-6 from Kingston. It works fine, but the filesystem is quite slow, as you'd expect.
To do this, I booted a Fedora 13 live-CD image from a USB stick, and then simply installed Fedora 13 onto the SD device. This made the SD card bootable just fine.
But, there was one other step to make the installed F13 come up: I had to add two modules to the initial ramdisk image: sdhci and sdhci_pci. Before I did that, the kernel would stop when it tried to mount the root filesystem, as it had not found the device for the SD reader. (Also make sure mmc_block and mmc_core are included, but that seems to happen automatically.)
The dracut command line would look something like this:
dracut -v -H --add-drivers "sdhci sdhci_pci" <img file> <kernel version>
Then make sure to add the drivers to your dracut.conf, so that they get included again for future kernels.
I didn't have to do anything special in the BIOS, aside from making sure the boot device order was appropriate.
I hope this info helps you!
PS: Now I have to figure out why the ethernet ports keep disappearing on each reboot, unless I disconnect the power.
