Hi,

First of all, thank you very much for your great support.
I've got a Ferrari 800se SSL82F running OpenBlackHole 1.4 FAM5.2J and I was wondering if there is a way to move the entire filesystem to a HDD drive, if so I would really appreciate some help.

Best regards,
rowellvb

It looks like that there is few ways, one of them is moving some of the files, into an external drive, that could be USB, HDD, CF etc.

See :

and here basics of moving and creating the other device,

If you want to move ALL to an external Memory device (HDD, USB etc), then you probably will need to read this,

http://www.ourdreambox.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1576#Post1576

We don't have much experience on this, as we use only the internal flash and as you seen we try to support and release only images that fit into the built-in Flash memory, to easy things for everybody. But if you want to enter on that direction, I believe all posts (and last one) would be helping you a lot to do what you want,

As you can see in the image, I've managed to install a new SSD in my box.
First, I created two partitions using fdisk command one of 5GB (dev/sda1) and the other with the rest of the unit 240GB as dev/sda2.
Then, I changed /etc/fstab file to address new schema:
/dev/sda2 /media/hdd auto defaults 0 0
But, I've received an error when I tried to record a file using the GUI... it seems that
the GUI needs to initialize the HDD before.
So, I initialized the HDD with the GUI, unfortunately it's erased the previous layout (two partitions).
Is there any way to change such behavior? I mean, initialize only over /dev/sda2 partition?
My apologies if I've not explained clearly the problem.
Thanks in advance.

I think you have to dig on this one,

http://www.ourdreambox.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=1576#Post1576

Code:
In case of the dm7025 this means:

primary boot source : cf [/autoexec_dm7025.bat ]
secondary boot source : flash

In case of the dm800 this means:

primary boot source : usb [/autoexec_dm800.bat ]
secondary boot source : flash

In case of the dm800se this means:

primary boot source : usb [/autoexec_dm800se.bat ]
secondary boot source : flash

In case of the dm8000 this means:

primary boot source : usb [/autoexec_dm8000.bat ]
secondary boot source : flash

In case of the dm500hd with USB modification this means:

primary boot source : usb [/autoexec_dm500hd.bat ]
secondary boot source : flash


As the autoexec file will jump to where to boot, so the /hdd

and download the MEGA file, as probably you have tools and infos about how to do all this,

Admin
