SIO2SD Boot Error

Recommended Posts

Just got Lotharek's SIO2SD for my stock XEGS. I can meander thru with the k1-k4 hardware buttons and load ATR's - but if I just press start to get the keyboard navigation'able menu - I get a continuous "BOOT ERROR".

 

I tried mounting the card and deleting the "SIO2SD.CFG" file, thinking that maybe after it wrote a new one, that would fix things. Well, it wrote a new one, but still get the "BOOT ERROR".

 

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Dude, I am so sorry that I never got back to you about loaning you my SDrive... Glad you got a SIO2SD and that you got it working... Feel free to PM me if you have any questions (I have an sio2sd too)

The default setting of SIO2SD is to select and load files/disks with buttons and LCD screen.

This is very nice because you can do a lot of things, even make ATRs, without having to turn off the computer.

 

But to mount disks or load files it's easier to use the on-screen loader.

To do this on every boot, a simple setting needed to be changed.

That's cool. Yeah, after some more research I felt the SIO2SD would suit my needs over the Maxflash+IDE. Now with my cart slot still open, I'll probably get an 1 or 8 flashcart (maybe SIC instead) for some sort of DOS or Forth. Still have some experimenting to do before I decide. Maybe SIDE will be readily available by time I decide. Then of course there are the Ethernet and USB carts that would be fun to play with too . . .

I have both a SIC and a Maxflash, both are very cool for on the go portable usage. But I rarely use them in my main machine at home (With so many machines I do use a SIC cart to go back and forth between the ones in my basement instead of hooking up sio2pc or the like)
