EComStation 2.0 - Installation Issues
These are the commons problems you may find installing eComStation.
- Insert eComStation Installation CD-ROM and press any key - Does not work
- Disk problem layout: The last partition extend beyond the expected cylinder boundary
Insert eComStation Installation CD-ROM and press any key - Does not work
When booting it says:
Insert eComStation Installation CD-ROM and press any key
After that you can no longer continue with the installation.
eComStation 2.0 installer does not comes with AHCI support, so the SATA CD-ROM drives do not get recognized by the eCS installer.
This was fixed on eComStation 2.1 that included an open source AHCI driver that can be enabled on the installation process.
Disk larger than 512GB and incompatible geometry
You can not install eComStation because you get an error that says "The disk is larger than 512GB and has been partitioned using a geometry which is incompatible with eComStation."
eComStation 2.x has a 512GB HDD limitation.
There are two posibilities:
- Erase all the partition and create them using eComStation
- Resize all existing partition to fit on 512GB.
Information about this are on the eComStation Quick installation guide included on the eCS CD. Check the chapter "1.2 Using a Hard Disk Larger Than 512 GB"
