Nope, all is not lost and believe me, a little perseverance will pay back big time. The Vega with a custom ROM is a completely different beast and is far more capable than the stock ROM.
To see what the problem is, open install-windows.bat in Notepad, go to the end, add a new line, add "pause" (without the quotes) and run it again. You will be able to see what the errors are and report back.
The alternative is to jump straight to a "modern" custom ROM like Corvus5. The mcr ROMs are long abandoned and don't have many of the latest fixes and tweaks.
Do stick with it, you won't regret it!
Hi All, Don't know how to post my problem but maybe someone will pick it up here and advise me!!!!!!!
I am a 62 years young newbie, but have been into computers and Gadgets for some 22years now, my 1st MP3 track was in the early days of 1989, how technology moves on.
Here's hoping someone can tell me what i am doing wrong. I have baked the R8 Rom for my Advent Vega and followed Paul's install guide to the letter.
However here is what happens and i cannot move past it.
Following the Command Prompt instructions
*daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037*
*daemon started successfully*
- flashing cursor
That's it, nothing else happens.
Command prompt just remains that far into the install.
I think it has to be something i am not grasping so please point me in the right direction.
