Fat Frog hangs at boot

Recommended Posts

I have just tried to make a custom ctf file for our Fat Frog consoles.

 

Loaded the file into the first console, and it loaded with an "ok"

 

restarted the console and it hangs on the boot, not starting, no response or anything.

(luck has it, I can still use the other console)

 

not sure what went wrong here, fear it might have scrapped the firmware image somehow....

 

 

Any suggestion on how to get the console working ?

Could you PM the on the address below with the serial of the desk and a copy of the CFT file as well.

When you say the desk is not responding do you get any information on the displays or VGA output?

Just tried once more, with a fresh disk (the 15'th I tried), and a fresh download of 10.12 incl. the common CTF.

As well as changed the drive in the console.

And finally it worked, after initial setup the custom CTF I made worked as well, so it seems to have been a combination of 3 things:

1: bad floppy drive in the console

2: a bunch of bad disks

3: a slight tired techie around 3:00 AM

 

 

Before it stalled at the startdisplay with the Bios version + age.

Bottom line of the display where it shows how far the upgrade has progressed, was stuck with only a ( on the left.

 

Oh and the console is the old without VGA option.

 

 

Anyway it has returned to life, and the one in charge of the money is happy we can skip getting a more modern console for now ;)
