SDHC cards work differently than standard SD cards, and I’m told are not supported currently.  Most cards above 2GB are SDHC.  Creating only a 2GB partition is no good either, as it does not change the technology in use.

When I boot up, it boots directly to the OE/Whatever preinstalled *ON THE GUMSTIX*, which according to a previous respondent was corrupted.

> So, I've stayed up all night trying to get Ubuntu on my microSD card. I succeeded, my 4GB is partitioned into two partitions, one that is 32mb and set to boot with the three files needed, and the other that is 3gb+ and has the operating system files in it. I followed this page exactly. It is strongly based on this page, so I am assuming it is correct.

When I boot up, it boots directly to the OE/Whatever preinstalled on the SD, which according to a previous responded was corrupted. It doesn't even notice the SD card. I am suitably frustrated.. What can I do? > -----------------------------------------------------------------
