eComStation BootCD testtrack

July 23, 2002 by BootTeam

eComStation BootCD Testtrack

Hard work is being done on the next release of eComStation, eCS 1.1.
One of the things where big changes are being put in place is the bootprocess. The new system that has been developed creates a RAM drive before eComStation starts. Then 2 diskette images are unpacked to the RAM drive. You will get a preboot menu (multipage) in which you will be able to select the required drivers for your system to boot.
You can also load a driver from a diskette that is copied to the RAM drive with which you will be able to boot eCS. This will mean that if your system supports booting from CD you should in most cases have no need to create bootdiskettes anymore. This new boot system requires testing by a big group of users.
When booted from CD you will get a pmshell (blue background) with a command line. You need to have at least 32 MB of ram in your computer for this CD to work.
You can use the CD on any system since it will not write data to harddisk.

Please note only registered eComStation users will be able to download this track (its about 10 MB in size).
To get it, please login and login with your userid and password as usual.

Two other options that require testing are MiniLVM and a new PMFormat.
Its strongly advised that you are careful with these tools since they can erase or corrupt the data on your harddrive. So booting from CD is harmless, however be careful with these tools. The tools can be found in ecsinstall on the boot CD.

Please do NOT send bug reports to us via email. We have put a web frontend where you can report any problems you have encountered. To access this, please login and select the BugTracker menu option. When filing a report to the BugTracker, please take note of the guidelines in the accompanying project documentation.
You may want to print that information for reference.

Thank you all for your cooperation
