Re: Dans XP 2003

The USB Boot version worked fine with the EFI boot rom. Switching to using Seabios you do not need to use the USB boot stuff. Just install XP ISO on a boot stick and install it to the SSD card.

Yes today using an Octocore S912 chip set for running Linux Kodi at home. Works great with 4K.

Re: Dans XP 2003

Still using an embedded XP tweaked image on my OF1's here. Works the best here with MS SAPI / touchscreen interface and remote controllable from a Windows server now running in a Virtual box running on Ubuntu. Tried Windows 8.1 embedded yesterday. Works but slow. Logged in to MS account and it dropp...

Re: Writing a MAC address to Joggler NIC

Hello @Andrew1971, Weird here posted a step by step response yesterday and do not see it today. LS is lower case ls and is the same as dir in windows. It is easiest to boot in to a dos boot stick. Before you can do that though you have to write the seabios rom to the joggler rom. I have put both rom...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Today write the new build on an Openpeak device (which looks like a Joggler but isn't). This Openpeak device is using a 16Gb SSD drive inside connected via ZIF cable. I just moved the OS partition to the 16Gb SSD and expanded it. Changed the boot UUID numbers in grub and fstab. This one has a 5 port...

Re: Ubuntu Bionic for OpenFrame

Interestingly, I can't seem to get this image booting on my OF2, but that is a Telio model with the default EFI that requires blind typing into the EFI shell (as I previously rewrote the stock OS to internal storage in a moment of madness while testing something) so I'll put that down to user error...

Re: Joggler's wifi has stopped working

I have seen the USB WLAN stick move after shipping a Joggler. That and typically is is positioned under the Joggler motherboard on the right side of the WLAN stick which can move it a bit from the USB socket.

Re: Broadcom BCM70015 mini pcie card

Here tested way back on the KODI 14.X build and only tested 1080 video to work fine. No stuttering. I did modify the Openframe 2 motherboard adding another USB port to the top (camera port), removed the combo WLAN/Bluetooth card and installed the Crystall 1/2 sized video card. I don't even remember ...
