The article you linked to talks about low level formatting using utilities provided, which I haven't used as I only have old cards, which have been formatted umpteen times already, so Support my Product Technical Support Centers Download Drivers Download User Manuals Forum LAPTOPS, MINI-NOTEBOOK and TABLET Portege Series Portege R Series Protege R100: How to boot OS from PCMCIA card If That could be worth checking, and could indeed explain why some CF cards work and some don't. Well thanks for trying I was really hoping it would work but I suppose I cant have everything.

which i don't have. I have checked the user manual of Portege R100 and there I can find some interesting informations and I must say itís possible to boot from a PCMCIA HDD.

So a PCMCIA card with a bootable OS on it can be viewed in explorer, however, when trying to get it to boot from this I get an "insert system disk" I've seen issues with larger cards before. The HDD sub-option has "PC Card" and "Built-in HDD" as options. I am trying to install Ubuntu on a 8 gig CF card mounted in the PCMCIA slot.

Being an eSATA shouldn't make a difference. I have tryed the tech support but they didn't replay. Do not insert the removable media during normal operations. It can boot from the Toshiba PCMCIA ATA flash card, from a 1GB Microdrive, from the 500MB and 1GB CF cards, and from a Maxtor MXL-105 PCMCIA hard disk.

I've followed various install-media readme.txt files and done several searches on the KB and here. I know that they are all essentially a generation or two before your test subjects. My hard drive is technically e sata in an encosure which I then have a cable that goes from the esata on the enclosure to the sata pcmcia card on my Rajah is currently working as Senior Technical Trainer/Technical Support Engineer with Ericsson IP Infrastructure.

Only True IDE mode ought to allow the CF cards to behave more like regular IDE disks. http://songstersoftware.com/trying-to/trying-to-dual-boot-xp-and-win98-using-two-physical-drives.html Adv Reply January 3rd, 2012 #6 Rgibbons View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message Just Give Me the Beans! Superior to floppy booting in every way, especially when many of these laptops don't even have a floppy drive built in and need either an external one or a dock.

Here's what I tried so far. Does anyone have relevant experience? I wonder what's wrong with the 760 TPs.

If you can't see the drive in the BIOS, it probably won't work.

The only way I am going to get it to boot from the PCMCIA is to figure out a way to mount the device in open firware before I attempt to He also holds Cisco and Ericsson proprietary certifications. Thread Status: Not open for further replies. My 760E/760ED/760EL manual explicitly mentions that it's possible to load an OS from a PC Card, but no details are given.

I'll have to try to find the PCMCIA ATA spec though. The readme for the 1103 SATA driver just says to hit F6 when Windows displays that, then insert the floppy. I found this IBM document which suggests that booting from PCMCIA ATA cards should be generally supported by 300/500/600/700 series ThinkPads. When your laptop has only USB 1.1, then you can speed up the boot process with an USB 2.0 PC-Card.
