Help!!! with Windows CE embedded system
Hi. I have a AMD Presidian PIC-1MM Personal Internet Communicator . The reason why I got it is because I found it extremely cheap (<$100) and uses little power (the processor uses 1W). Also, no heat etc. I plan on installing it in my car. It is so small it almost fits my headunit housing (still working on that).
Now, the system comes with Windows CE installed. I cannot get a front end installed on this shtty op system. That is why I tried installing a different operating system. The problem is that ... I can;t access the bios on this device. I had to install the original hard drive on a separate computer, formated the HDD and then installed a nlite windows. It boots just fine on that pc, but when I install it in the pic... it detects the HDD but then it just stops.
What could be the problem? Maybe the bios looks for a specific file on the HDD before initializing or what?
It might help or not, but the HDD was partitioned in 3 drives, one invisible (well actually only 1 partition was accessible to me, and 2 on a separate pc).
Thank you in advance for all your help. I hope there is someone out there who knows this stuff. I am a windows wmbedded noob :(
Windows CE w/ XP extensions
I might be able to help you with the dll's from an AMD PIC running Win CE 5.0 with XP extensions. I have one taken apart in front of me and am currently working on it to see what I can do with it. I have the contents of the HD mounted on another PC. Tell me what you need offline and I will see what I can do. Maybe in exchange you can tell me a bit more about that Chinese GPS app for a CE PC. reply offline to "cphealy at gmail dot com".
