Default SDHC - 04-26-2009, 10:16 PM

Installed OS X and bought a an SDHC card (PQI 16GB) but I run into a problem when I boot my dell mini 9 with it. I use my imac to place files (video, text etc) on the card then I put it back in my mini9 and start it up. When I do this the mini 9 stays stuck on the apple logo. I have to remove the card and start it up w/o. Any solutions?

I do this all the time and haven't encountered any problems like this (although I used to in the early days).

A couple of quick questions ...

1) What version of DellEFI are you using?

2) What happens if you boot without the SDHC card and then insert the SDHC card later, will it read the card okay then?

3) Okay ... more than a couple of questions ... how is the SDHC card formatted?

Dell Mini 9 | OS X 10.5.8 | DellEFI 1.2a5 | BIOS A05 | 16GB STEC SSD

1)Unless this sites install guide has been updated in the last couple of weeks I'm running DellEFI 1.07.1. How do you check?
2) If I boot without the card then insert it later it works no problems.
3)Mac OS X Extended Format
