I'm trying to use ipodpatcher to install the bootloader but getting an error.
I ran a few passes of badblocks in read write mode on /dev/sda1 with no errors
so I suspect my drive is okay. Any ideas on what to try next?
Also, I'm able to read/write using dd with no errors.
I'm using firewire to connect.
Thanks for any pointers.
