Post Booting from SD/SDHC with fit-pc2i
Hi,

I just received a few Fit-PC2i's in the mail. According to

http://www.fit-pc2.com/wiki/index.php?t ... _Revisions

there will be support for bootable SDHC in the May-2010 revision (1.2). How can I tell which revision I have now (it's almost may). Also, is this simply a BIOS update, and if so, will this update be made available for older pc2i revisions?

Your fit-PC2i is revision 1.1
It does not incorporate SDHC boot.
There is no intention to enable this through BIOS upgrade.

Due to licensing issue CompuLab does not support SD boot on fit-PC2i rev 1.1

Does it work on new fit-PC2s?

If it buy one now, will it be able to boot from SD?

This is an essential feature for me because I want to put the OS on flash storage and data on a disk.

All current models of fit-PC2 and fit-PC2i support SD boot.

Hi,

I have received my fit-pc2 early 2010. I'm guessing it is a rev1.21. The Serial number indeed starts with 09091x-xxx.

Am i then correct saying I can't boot Linux on a miniSDHC card? What about a miniSD Low Capacity card (till 2gigs)?

Thanks for the support.

Sebastien.

[EDIT]: by reading this:
http://www.fit-pc.com/wiki/index.php/Fi ... _ROM_Files

I can conclude the SD and SDHC boot is only for Revision 1.4. Meaning I can't do that. Fair enough...

Can I then boot from USB stick? I want to create a very minimal server and i don't need/want install a hard drive in it since i'll be only using between 2 and 8Gigs.

Thanks for the feedback,

Sure!

FitPC2i supports boot from USB thumb drive. You can check this by running a live Ubuntu version from a USB drive.

Please refer to http://www.ubuntu.com/download/help/cre ... on-windows for creating such USB drive

Thanks a lot.

Could you also please confirm I can't use the SD or SDHC boot on old motherboard revision (1.21)?

I'm maybe planning to buy a sata to SD adapter:

So i won't block a usb port for the operating software.

Thanks!
