Unhappy booting dvd-r on no-solder v5/6...

sponsored links

 
...can someone let me know what a 'dongle' is?
I can't seem to get dvd-r to boot with ar2v2 trying various booting methods. Some say insert 'dongle' in port 2. What is it and how do I get it to work? Tried faq's but still nun the wiser!

a dongle is the device that stores all the codes. looks like a memory card.
if you dont have one, then i think you are out of luck, but i may be wrong, and no doubt someone will correct me

Yea the dongle is like a memory card. You need to have the dongle I believe in order to boot dvdr. There is a way to boot dvdr without dongle, but thats only for a certain version.

What method of boot you using? are you sure your original dvd (use for the swap) is bigger than the back up?

check here for alternate boot methods:
