    Installing on a Compact Flash

    aslankose

      Hi,

       

      I am trying to install the Intel Gateway OS to a Compact Flash to be able run on my gateway. I am not able boot from compact flash. When I point the EFI boot file, system boots. Is there any suggestion about how I should install the image on a compact flash.

       

      I am using /dev/sda1 as vfat, and /dev/sda2 as root

       

      Thanks for suggestion.

            Hi Aslan,

             

            May I know the Intel Gateway OS you use?

            May I know the type of Gateway you use?

            Could provide me the method you install the Intel Gateway OS to your Gateway?

            Could you provide the command line yo u use to install the OS to your Gateway?

              Hi Mohamed,

               

              I got my OS from IOT market place.

               

              I use IntelIoTGatewaySoftwareSuite_core64bit. I guess this ended up W7.0.0.13

               

              I restored .img file with win32, Rufus, and Linux disk image tools to USB disk. I tired this with multiple USBs and multiple times.

              I am using a Siemens IPC ( which is a din rail industrial PC with Core2 U9300 cpu 4 gb ram and a compact flash drive. NO SATA)

               

              I used deploytool command to deploy after booting into the USB image. Recovery method didn't work. I tired this multiple times.

               

              I used  multiple ways with deploytool, but my last command line is

               

              deploytool -d /dev/sda --lvm 0 -lvm-size 100%VG --reset-media

               

              Regards,

                Hi Aslan,

                 

                As you mention your compact flash is /dev/sda.

                Could it be mmcblk?

                 

                Try to run fdisk -l to get the output.

                 

                As I know, the compact flash is like micro SDcard.
