AW: [Oberon] USB Boot

The USB boot file of the Bluebottle crazy fresh release 19.12.2005 is bigger than 512KB (default size of space reserved for boot file in AosFS). Be sure, that when formatting the USB drive you want to boot from, you really have enough space for it on the volume (fsRes parameter in Partitions.Format).
The Kernel will be loaded/executed before the Bluebottle USB drivers are loaded (by the BIOS USB driver), so you should see the trace messages from the kernel even if the BB USB drivers would not work (to see it, set the config strings "TraceMode=1" and "Init=").
The only thing different from a H.D.D. installation of Bluebottle:
- Use AosUSB.Bin as boot file
- Set the config string BootFromUsb=1

>Can anyone re-link the AosUSB.Bin file in the release?
You can re-link AosUSB.Bin by using Aos.Tool under Oberon. There is a section called "link bootfile".
BTW: I'm still working on the USB stack... in the current release, there are still some bugs (in particular for EHCI controllers).

Has anyone booted from a USB stick using the Dec 19, 2005 crazy fresh release?

Can anyone re-link the AosUSB.Bin file in the release?
