I see an earlier post with somebody talking about new Nvidia drivers and I see that the Alpha has recently been pushed, so seems to me like the perfect time for somebody to update the Live installer for this scenario.
That was me who was talking about the Nvidia Drivers... If you notice, they're actually already included. See This Post: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=60991

One problem is after I use putty then next time I boot up it goes into a console/terminal mode and after I type in my root (or xbmc) name and password then I don't know how to get it to start up XBMC.
I am really a Linux newb. I don't know the commands or evan the most basic things. I was able to change to xorg.conf file but then it was like I said, can't get reboot without knowing the commands.

Just got my new Revo.
I've got a good live bootable USB drive (it can boot XBMC from my laptop), but when I try to boot this same USB drive to my new Revo, it says "This is not a bootable disk"
Any ideas why this would work on a different PC, but not on the Revo?
Also, since the Revo has an SD slot, I was going to intstall xbmc to an SD card, but the options on the XBMC install are to install xbmc on either a fixed HD, or a USB drive. How do I get it to recognize my SD card to install on to?
Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

You have to go into the BIOS and change the USB emulation mode to HDD. Or something like that... It then becomes bootable.

This may seem like a really stupid question but I was wondering is XBMC compatible with an external HD?
I am running XBMC on an xbox and I was thinking of upgrading to an acer aspire revo. However if I cannot plug my 1TB WD my book hardrive into it then I dont think I can be bothered. The one really annoying thing about having XBMC on my old xbox one is that it doenst have a USB port.
So to summarise; Can a plug a USB HD into the acer aspire revo and watch media directly off the USB HD via XBMC?

Can't you just use one of these?

Any chance you can just reply to my question?
Yes you can - fig32 - 2009-11-09 15:50
I have a WD 500GB passport plugged directly into the Revo and it works fine. I can view and play all of my movies and music.

Working but have a question - fig32 - 2009-11-09 15:52
I purchased the Revo and have it working just fine now. The installation went on without a hitch and all is working. I have been playing with the interface and wonder if this would be even better if Windows 7 with a full blown copy of Media center were installed? Would there be a real benefit or would this thing choke on that? Any ideas?

My response was based opon your comment:
Quote:However if I cannot plug my 1TB WD my book hardrive into it then I dont think I can be bothered.
Which made it sound like the only reason you wanted to upgrade was so you can plug an External HDD in. And if that's the case you can do that with your xbox.
But to answer your question, yes you can.
