first, sorry for my english. I’m not really used to it.
I have a small problem with my 3150SE. One year ago I bought it on ebay to set up a small home NAS.
For this I booted with an Damn Small Linux USB Stick and made an image of the 32MB Flash partition for backup. I used the dd command.
After this I installed tinycore linux on the 3150SE.
Everything worked well. But know I had the need to reload the backup of the Windows CE to the machine. The problem is, the backup was corrupt due to an broken USB Stick!!!
I tried to use the Wyse USB Imager for reloading Windows CE. Therefor I used the downloadable files from wyse support. The problem here is that the USB Imager can only handle .r2d files, but in the downloaded archive there is only an .bin file.
In an PDF for the Wyse Device Manager is written that it can be used to convert such an .bin file to an .r2d file. Unfortunatly I haven’t this program.
So I want to ask here if there is someone with who can convert me this image, or allready has an backup of an 3150SE?
Thanks a lot.

The tool to convert the image is named DOS or Windows Explorer 😉
Just rename the file, that’s all.

Thank you very much. I will try it as soon as I can.

BTW, the correct file extension is .i2d and not .r2d

Thanks a lot. Maybe my mind was in a galaxy far far away (r2d2^^)
Ok, I renamed it correctly and it didn’t work. After another hour of trying I re-read the readme file and discovered my second mistake. “You should rename the .i2d file to 3150.i2d” …
So I did it and it worked! I chose the 3150 in the selection screen and the programme loaded a lot of stuff. It finished properly and I restarted the 3150 ….
“PXE-E01: PCI Vendor and Device IDs do not match! No boot device present. Halting.”
This nice little message is now shown on the screen. I googled this error and it said that there is a problem with the boot order in the BIOS.
So I restarted again and changed into the BIOS screen by pressing DEL. And there I saw some interesting facts.
First, the usual password “Fireport” is not working! And second, on the BIOS screen it says:
Boot order configuration
2. Invalid Entry!
3. Invalid Entry!
Video Memory: Invalid Entry!
Power Control: Always On
Parallel Port Mode: Compatible
I am pretty sure that this is not correct, but unfortunately I have no idea what I can do now.
I tried to reboot with the USB stick in order to flash the image and the BIOS but the same message about “no boot device” occured. Even the USB device with my linux is not booting.
Is it possible that the battery is dead?
How can I flash the BIOS and the OS without the possibility of booting from a USB drive?
Maybe someone can give me a hint.

Is there an option in the BIOS to load defaults?

Yes there was an option to press “L” for loading the default options, but it was not working. If I pressed the “L” it was taken as an letter for the password input.
So I am stuck there. The password “Fireport” is not working and without the correct password I can’t reload the default BIOS options.
I probably should try to flash the BIOS if this is still possible :/

Try Rygel16 as a password.
