Asus eeePC 206 MD Bootless Alpha 810
« on: May 13, 2009, 11:02:20 am »
Tried to get an Asus eeePC 206 working bootless, tries to install software, but then the screen gets black.
The diffence with the ASUS box eeePC 202, is the Network chipset and that it has an ATI onboard video chip (3400)

Follow standard MD netboot installation sequence

Check the other numbers (i.e. not only 1) and report back. Also, make sure that the display is turned on, when you turn on your PC

Did a clean install of the core with LinuxMCE new-installer 7 and alpha2.20.

The MD shows that it is booting and installing from the server, but after a while
screen loses signal.

Made a 10 minute movie of the whole process
The screen goes black after a list with [ok].

The last 4 of the list are

starting bluetooth [ok]
starting manager result [ok]
starting anachronicm etcetc [ok]
starting (i cannot read this but it has "command" in it and consists of 4 words) [ok]

Right after that my monitor loses signal and says "no signal"

Pressed all buttons, started with 1 and I ended with 9, after that just start pressing all buttons ;)
