Atleast from me, no offense taken.
It is my understanding that the BIOS thinks a CF card is a hard drive,
so there really shouldn't be an issue.
What kinds of problems are you experiencing, or was this just a query
for what works.
You can also search ebay for "compact flash adapter" "cf-to-ide
adapter" . I bought mine from ebay for less than $7 each, $11 with

I did not mean to offend and do not want to freeload hence my request to be
pointed in the right direction. I did search the archives, but did not know
about the wiki. Perhaps I searched for the wrong terms / criteria. Most of
what I found had to do with embedded installations, not generic PC. But,
maybe my question to the list was not focused enough -- I seem to be having
trouble specifically with the Intel boards. Perhaps I should ask, "Has
anyone had success with CF to IDE adapters on Intel boards D865 and higher?"

Betreff: [m0n0wall] Compact Flash Adapters for PC installation
Can anyone point me in the right direction to find a compact flash
IDE adapter that will work with the generic PC image using newer
mainboards? I've tried a few different ones from Addonics which
the system at various stages during boot and a generic one which
not boot at all in an Intel motherboard. Alternatively, suggestions
properly configuring a CF to IDE adapter and getting it to work
crashing would be appreciated as well. We've settled for now on
an Adaptec USB floppy/CF reader, but have found the boot time in
motherboards to be excessively long -- + 7 minutes. We'd assumed
was because FreeBSD 4 did not have USB 2.0 drivers for the newer
chipsets from Intel (915 and higher). Anyway, assistance, thoughts,
commentary would be most welcome.
