AIM-CUE ,formatted 1GB CF, reiserfs partition question.
I am studying for the IIUC exam and I think I've done something stupid . I removed the 1GB CF from the AIM-CUE module, Inserted it into my 2801 CF slot and did a "format flash:". After some research I found out that the AIM-CUE CF needs to have specific reiserfs filesystem and partitions. I can load the CUE installer image using the boot helper, however it seems to be stuck in a loop when trying to boot.
I managed to reformat the CF as a reiserfs and set the partition as 0x83 (linux) partition using ubuntu and a CF reader. However I just have it as a single 1GB partition. I read somewhere there needs to be 2 partitions, but I couldnt find out what size or type they had to be. Im guessing the 2nd partition needs to be reiserfs 0x82 (linux swap) ?
If someone could please let me know how I need to format the CF that would be greatly appriciated!:), I've pulled my hair out for the last 8 hours trying to figure it out (i've learnt a hell of a lot so i guess its not time wasted).
Here is the bootloader output of the loop it seems to be stuck in.
