    I didn't know the EPIAs had a temp saftey feature. Mine will boot up no matter how cold it is. It's get's to -30C regularly here in Ottawa, Canada.
    The problem I encounter is after the post. At the point where the windows logo appears, it reboots. Then boots back to the same point, then reboots again.
    It will keep doing this until it is warm enough, the it continues on to Windows.
    I have yet to figure out which part of my system is the culprit.

    I have a 1G Sandisk Extreme. I know it's not rated at that temp, but it passes post and starts loading windows. That means its reading from the CF card. The ram must be getting used at that point. So what's left?

    What does your system do exactly?

    Possibly PSU could be weakest point.

    .

    When testing its gotta sit there all night in the cold cant just be a few hours.


    as far as changing over to .Net, I like the functionality it gives. As far as programming I needed to learn it for my job and I fig'd what better way to get a good hands on and change my existing front end to .net, that way I can learn the language and acomplish my car stuff at the same time :-)

    yeah, .net is kinda slowish but it makes programming stuff alot easier and the functionality is pretty cool, so i can understand why someone would want to switch to .net

    It's only slow if you don't know what you're doing.
    Keeping with good programming practice, a .NET application will run just as fast as you expect any windows application.
    It all just depends on the application itself. The overhead from the VM isn't what makes things take so long to load. It just depends on what the application is doing.

    there are tons of articles on MSDN about optimizing .NET apps. People using .NET should read them. They are there for a reason. Like I posted in the Centrafuse forum for instance, you can install a native image of your .NET app in your GAC which can speed up the app startup time significantly.

    @Knubile: So what temperature will your system do the reboot thing at?

    I'm gonna be really dissapointed if I've spent all this time on a CF install only to find out that the PSU, mobo, etc don't work below 0 degrees...
