I can now extract the *.fwp files. Because I've got the routine for that:
Good catch! I confirm it works.
The Ram drive is the device /dev/hdc containing 3 partitions the first beeing a MSDOS part made bootable with syslinux the syslinux.conf file sets the boot parameters. Don't now what the RAM drive actually is (maybe also a USB/CFcard build in or so)?
Ram drive is a wrong name here, as Ram is volatile. It's a flash drive.
I think it's connected through the IDE bus, seeing it's name (hdc, master on second IDE chain). So that could be a CF card, or a disk on module
. An usb device would have been sdx, I think.
If you can find the first IDE port, and connect a bootable disk to it, the box might boot from it. An other option is a (USB) floppydrive. According to the strings in the bios it's supported. But of course I don't know how the boot sequence in the bios is.
You could also try a bootable sata disk, but I don't think the bios supports it. No trace of it in bios strings, while I can find IDE. I think it's only handled by the Linux kernel.
Can you post a good photo of the motherboard? (You can put it directly in the wiki
, if you like)
