You mentioned that you hooked up the HD cables, what are they hooked up to right now?
One of my power supplies was giving me a problem.. for some reason I had to have a CD-ROM drive hooked up to the power supply in order for the board to boot. It was as if it needed the extra power load, it didn't even need to be plugged to the board, just the PS.
Did the extender come pre-installed? If so I would assume that the board is already updated w/ Newboot. Otherwise you need to update it to newboot, before attaching the extender board.
As far as the lights go, that sounds like the proper operation. I can't tell for sure because my board is with Jens right now.
Do you see ANY indication of an attempt to sync to a video signal, a flicker or anything?
Did you try reseating the SIMM module?
When I mentioned the HD cable I meant the HD led cable/wires from the LED on teh tower to the HD activity pins on the C-One.
Everything came pre-installed, including the latest hardware mods.
I got no signal whatsover and no flickering of the screen - just a "no input signal" message.
I got a reply from Jens suggesting using different CF cards or a multisynch monitor, plus letting me know the LEDs on the mobo were correct. Assuming from this that my board was working and that I just couldn't see the Newboot menu selection I decided to change the CF card files so that it would boot directly into a Minimig core on startup. As per teh read me I deleted all teh root files with the exception of the 2 directories, copied over the contents of the PAL Minimig core (and I tried the NTSC core) along with some game ADF files and the KICK.ROM (the same one I use on the Minimig v1.1) and switched on...
This time I got a blue screen and the following text:
Minimig by Dennis van Weeren
Bug fixes, mods and extensions by Jakub Bednarski
FPGA core FAA000000
Agnus ID: $20 (PAL) Denise ID: $FF
and then the boot sequence hangs at this point.
IT's inetresting that the extender.rbf file copied from the Minimig core is larger than the file originally unpacked from the ZIP archive to the root for Newboot selection.
Anyway, I have a display now, but does anyone have any other ideas on how to get the "insert disk" logo?
