Shuttle SN78SH7
« on: July 04, 2009, 09:36:27 am »
I just tried to use the Shuttle SN78SH7 http://us.shuttle.com/barebone/Models/SN78SH7.html as diskless MD, it booted over the internal LAN port of the Hybrid 810 latest release 2.24, when the Shuttle message came up "We announce ourself" the Hybrid displays "Data Grid Plugin Do you want to use" ???? I haven't seen this before !!!
Just to see what will happen I selected yes, then the Hybrid went into wired loop I had to force reboot and I'm still waiting for it to come up!!

Any input really appreciated.

Good update: I reinstalled my hybrid to the latest 810, after fresh installation, I powered up my Shuttle MD, after couple reboots, I  got the MD up and running with VGA (1280x1024) UI2/no alpha, and stereo audio, next step to test the surround and HDMI.
I just have one question here, I have installed AMD Phenom X3 (64bits) in the Shuttle, and my hybrid "Big Box" has Intel P4 3GHZ (64 bits), and it is using i386 architecture, I noticed my Shuttle is using AMD64 archtiecture, and both working OK, my understanding that the LinuxMCE 810 Alpha does not support AMD64  architecuture which is the 64 bits, because we installed Ubuntu Interpid 8.10 (32 bit) version, so how come my MD is working now with 64bit architecture??  ???

Few notes during the instalation, everytime I was using the keybord to enter information during the AV wizard, Sarah  went back to initial state, so I used the mouse to complete the installation, also the power down the MD from the Core Power screen does not work, and the core power up, did not power the MD's like it was doing in the 710 release.

Thanks.

short answer: its lieing to you.
it actually is using 32 bit, its just being tricked to think its using 64 bit so thats what it tells you.
