Swap Magic Free MC Boot 1.8 install problem
Swap Magic Free MC Boot 1.8 install problem –
I am having this small problem with booting the Free MC Boot Installer using Swapmagic 3.8.
I'll try to describe every step I do:
I did pretty much everything by the instructions... Or atleast I think so
1. Format the USB stick (Kingston, 1GB) FAT 32.
2. Download Free MC Boot ("noobie" one).
3. Create the SWAPMAGIC folder and copy the BOOT.ELF file from the "noobie" pack and rename it to SWAPMAGIC.ELF.
4. Put the FREE_MCBOOT.ELF in the root of the USB stick from the "Noobie" pack.
5. Put the INSTALL folder in the USB Stick.
6. Stick the USB Stick in to the PS2, run it with Swap Magic. I get to the LaunchElf menu, find the FREE_MCBOOT.ELF, run it and... nothing.
The only thing I get is a big black screen. I thought it's "just" a black screen and the instalation is still running, tryied to press the install button, nothing happens.
This is pretty much what happens. I am most probably doing something silly with it, but I have no idea what.
I will appreciate any help that anyone can provide as I am goddamn stuck.
oh and to add: I am doing all this under (Dum dum duuuuum!) Windows Vista x64.
If you have another USB Stick try it, Kingston brand is one of the Hardest to get compatibility with the install program of FMCB.. DJ
Thanks for the reply
I wanted to do that with a HDD, but unfortunately failed probably because I can't format it to FAT32 (only NTFS). So Swap Magic doesn't see it.
You can't format what to FAT32? Your USB?
the HDD. The USB stick was formated to FAT32 without a problem.
OK, so you also have a HDD, hooked to a Network Adapter?
You lost me on the HDD being formatted?
You can check the link in my signature on my youtube page on how to format HDD's using Vista 64.
I am sorry, I was probably not clear enaugh.
I plug the HDD via the USB stick and thanks, I'll try to format it your way.
I used it for UsbeXtreme (which sucks monkey balls).
ok, thanks all for the support, I solved this with a PSP (didn't have a USB cable before, had to go buy one)
Remember kids, don't use those f*cking Kingston usb sticks, they will make you go bonkers.
