Title: Troubles getting ML to run on komputerbay 1000x 128GB!
Post by: jamessuperior on December 22, 2013, 09:33:18 PM
Hi awesome folks,

First of all shout out and thanks for the awesome ML hack to Alex and all the other contributors!

I have a problem though, i have a 5d mark II running ML through two different 8GB cards so I'm familiar with installing and running ML.
The problem I'm facing is with a 128 GB 1000x Komputerbay card, i've read all topics i could find about this, but still can't get it to work, thats why I'm trying with the best of the best, your guys here at the forum.

I've tried formatting the card 2 or 3 times, copying the ML files from the 8 GB cards and doing a "clean" install.
I've run Macboot and EOSCard from Mac and Windows computers, i too checked the card and the MBS is 000000000, regarding this topic.

So hopefully some one, can help me solve my problem.

Please help my in some direction.

All the best,

Jonas

Specs/gear used:
5d Mark II with firmware 2.1.2
ML 2.3 (tried nightly build and newest day)
Komputerbay 1000x 128 GB

Correction to card format... I checked my cards and they are FAT32 not ExFat.  Thanks Walter for the correction.

Just realised how old the post I responded to was - feel free to ignore  :-[ .

Which version of EOSCard were you using? How many cards 128gb cards do you have?

When you say that you can't get it to work what does this mean exactly e.g.: ML won't load or it loads but won't run etc.

 I have recently purchased 3 x 128gb 1000x Komputerbay cards and all have successfully been made them bootable with EOScard v1.40.

The process that successfully worked for me on all three cards follows:
I don't own a Mac so all of the above is done using a windows PC.

Note that it is important to always eject usb devices from the computer correctly or corruption can and from 1st hand experience, does occur.

Also you might want to try a different card reader. If the one that you are using is a bit old then there may be some compatibility issues with it.

I appreciate that you may have tried any or all of the above but sometimes the sequence of events can mean the difference between success or not.

It can't hurt to give the above process a try, if it works, fantastic, if not then you may have a dud card.

Cheers

AFAIK ExFAT isn't supported by Mark II.
