I have a non-responsive PPMAC (No green light, No activity indicators on Ethernet). I'd like to try reloading firmware through the Miniusb on the flash module. Is there an image available for this?

 

 

An image 1GNoVideo-1.4.027.zip is here :

Instructions on what to do with it are here:

I presume you are referring to the post by "DavisG". Is there no documentation more official than this?

 

My immediate problem is that restore instructions in this post suggest that there is a single partition on the drive (he talks about "drive E" only). However, WinImage indicates the .vhd file for 1.5.8 has 2 partitions. I'm not sure how to reconcile the two. Anyone?

smr99:

 

The PPMAC has 2 partitions, one formatted with ext2 (Linux) format, and another using FAT32 format. Windows cannot read ext2, so it will only mount the FAT32 partition. This is the E:\ drive DavisG was talking about.

 

The Power PMAC project is stored on the FAT32 partition. The Power PMAC firmware and operating system files are stored on the ext2 partition.

 

If you have problems identifying the partitions, the FAT32 partition is usually smaller than the ext2 (on a test PPMAC here I'm showing 6.5 GB for ext2 partition and 948 MB for FAT32 partition). But this might depend on which PPMAC you are working on.
