 +====== DBBC + Linux on 8GB CF ======

 +~~DISCUSSION~~
 +I went out to the observatory again on Friday and had another go at making the DBBC boot Linux off our 8GB CF card.\\
 +
 +I failed.\\
 +
 +Investigation of the hopeful error message which was observed previously revealed that instead of being useful it is a generic "​confused hardware"​ message. There seems to be no good reason in the images'​ configuration for these problems. Extensive tweaking of bios settings (ACPI off, DMA off, etc) did not improve the situation.\\
 +
 +My feeling is that before I spend more hours struggling with this, that we should buy a cheap 4GB CF and see if we have more success with this.
