  • The good news is that it is starting to boot, but then stopping.

    It looks like you have the OS set to do something with the CF card that you no longer have in the system.  That could be hive registry.

  • Thank for replay,

    I am not aware that I am doing somthing special for CF card.

    I have the Hive-based Registry catalog item in the image, are this make any problem with the DISK?

    The procedure I prepare the Disk for booting is same as I made the CF.

    Thanks,

    David.

  • I changed the Hive-based Registry to RAM-based Registry.

    Not helped.

    Thanks,

    David.

  • Besides to Hive-based registry, make sure you are using Object Store (RAM based filesystem) instead of CF card as root file system.

  • Thanks Kmos,

    How I control the CF card as root file system or not.

    In my File System and Data store I have: (This currently load from CF, which I am tring to load form DISK)
    Bit-based
    Compression
    Database Support
    Ram and ROM file System
    Ram Based Registry
    - in Storage Manager I have
      Binary Rom Image File System
      CD/UDFS File System
      FAT File System
      Storage Manager Control Panel Applet
      Transaction-Safe FAT File System (TFAT)

    Thanks,

    David.
