You seem to be the Freelink manual install expert.  I'm using your page and have all of the images in partitions on my hard drive.  Can't get it to boot from it.  I've changed the Uboot variables per the isntructions but it seems to find a uImage file that doesn't match what I saved to the boot partitiion.  And whatever it finds has a bad CRC.  Any suggestions?

help with manual install

You seem to be the Freelink manual install expert. I'm using your page and have all of the images in partitions on my hard drive. Can't get it to boot from it. I've changed the Uboot variables per the isntructions but it seems to find a uImage file that doesn't match what I saved to the boot partitiion. And whatever it finds has a bad CRC. Any suggestions?
