Boot from compactflash


Here is a simple question for you. I am trying to boot Debian from an onboard CompactFlash drive on an Advantech PCM-9579 board. The Drive currently comes up as Secondary Slave and I want it Primary Master. How would i do this with Award Bios v. 6.0?

Why does it need to be Primary master ? why not just set it as the first boot device in the BIOS ?

Consult your user manual under Advanced BIOS Features setup.
