It is possible that the backup does not contain the MBR?
If I make a backup with dd if=/dev/sdd1 occupies 128991744 bytes (129 MB)
If I make a backup with dd if=/dev/sdd   occupies 129024000 bytes (129 MB)
The difference coincides with the 63 boot sectors.

I've read that can be done with the following command from linux
dd if=/dev/xxx of=mbr_63.backup bs=512 count=63

Could you make a backup of the MBR of your compactflash.

Thank you very much.

The Igel: 25,- Euro via Ebay +
29,- Euro Intel PCI-X Dual 1000 GB LAN Server Card

I put some pictures of how I put the LED network (I have already drilled to put another led more) for what it's idea.

Picture of the front which is also where I have placed the hard drive of a laptop.
Detail of the LEDs. I put a female sockets by the distance to the front to change without weld again.
The holes on the front are the plastic outer 2mm and 4mm on the inside to fit all the LEDs.

.



Best regards.

The 564 LX Premium has VIA C3 CPU, while 4210 LX Winestra has VIA C7 CPU inside.

The third LED is to indicate the IDE port activity. It is necessary to solder two resistors and a diode to operate and the LED is connected to J2. It's a bit difficult because SMD components.

R20 = 33 OMHS
R22 = 10 Komhs
D1 = 1N4148

I have not proven to work with the compactflash. With the ide port works perfectly.

I need to backup the MBR 63 sectors of the original card IGEL to recover the original system. A full backup including the MBR also helps me. It must have 129024000 bytes. Thanks.

Best regards

Alright. I dumped the CF again under native Linux:

Code: [Select]
$ sudo dd if=/dev/sdb of=Igel_Winestra.img
252000+0 records in
252000+0 records out
129024000 bytes (129 MB) copied, 9.21551 s, 14.0 MB/s

I hope this time it will suit you fine. Grab it from here: CF_dump_dd_linux

How have you been configured snort?
In my config, if I enable snort, cpu goes all up to 100%, and all connections die.

Thank you very much, Robi.

Now starts perfectly and I can play with. I'll see if I can install new programs through the upgrade process. Now I will tell you if I make some progress.

Best regards

Can you please share a photo which shows more precisely the way you mounted the hard drive mechanically?

Top view. I put it there because the IDE cable is usually short and do not cover the tabs of the plastic front. Could also be putting up the parallel port connector.
Side view. I had to put a few nuts to separate the disc and the cover has a tab.
Details of the placement of components to test the operation of port activity LED IDE. When shopping for the SMD components change and get nice ;-)



I'm waiting for the IDE-SATA adapter and a new compactflash.

Best regards

Aren't you afraid that the drive will be toasted by the CPU and GPU heatsink? They can get pretty warm...
Also, unfortunately right below the HDD there are some electrolytic condensers, which don't really like warm weather. They are already too close to the heatsinks (bad placement IMHO by design), placing a HDD there would minimize the air flow, and get even warmer, wouldn't it?

I thought I'd place it under the PCI card. Where the optional PCMCIA slot would have been.

The hard disk touch just 1.5 cm with the cpu heatsink and coincides with a flap on the other heatsink. I do not think that affects him because heat rises and the CPU will never be below the disk. I'll tell you when I reach the parts that I need and I finish it.

A greeting.
