OK, burned the straight download ISO the way that works with EasyCD
Creator, but it still gives me the same message as last time, in the
same place as last time.
<snip of seg 0-3 loads>
Error: read from boot device failed( status = -4)
byteio_read: seekread() returned -1 expected 2048
error: segment 0 read() failed
The CD was burned at 2x and the discs are 4x certified (PNY). The CD is
external on the 50 pin narrow bus (core.SCSI.2.0) However, it does not
have termination on the external bus. The internal narrow SCSI devices
*do* have termination (ie the DDS2 tape drive). I have switched the CD
with the DDS2 drive before, but not this time with the new correct
burn. Could termination be an issue here and should I try putting the
CD drive internally with termination?
64Mb x 2
2.1GB FW differential SCSI
DDS2 narrow tape drive
External narrow CD drive
Standard blah blah graphics
Thanks in advance,
