we've used crucial cf cards for a couple of installations.  Either it was
finicky about the reader we used or the mainboard(s) we used were.  Still
not sure which, but a crucial cf will work with the right reader for sure.
We don't use the net45xx platform so I can't attest to that.

I have not had problems with a Crucial CF...

I have had problems booting net4501s after upgrading to comBIOS v1.28 I had
to "set bootdrive=80 81 F0". I know your show indicates it is correct, but
try it anyway.
