SD card boot with compact 7

May 1, 2012 at 2:12 AM

Hi,

 

I follow the SD card preparation with this http://gumstixbsp.codeplex.com/documentation but the gumstix is still boot to nand. I don' t know whether there is anything I was missing. I use 4 gb uSD.  Thanks.

 

If I can boot up and test the windows CE, I would like also purchase the BSP. Could you also guide my on the cost?

Make sure the uSD card is properly formatted. There are some special requirements that the partition be marked as “active”. Windows native formatter does not mark partitions on removable media as “Active”. You can use the HP USB formatter tool or manually modify the boot sector or use the Linux procedure. Information on line.

You also need to copy the “MLO” file first. It must be the first entry in the FAT table or the on chip bootload will not find it.

Cost of the BSP is $300 payable via PayPal. No formal support although I will help with initial installation and checkout.

Thanks David, initially I tried with TI util and select all files to SD card. But it seems doesn't work yet. I tried another method you suggest later. Once I test the windows ce to verify it is suitable with my application, I will then purchase the BSP.
