I recently had the same issue with the SanDisk cards on an Intel Mainboard
and many other mainboards. I found that the CF card would autodetect to run
PIO mode 4 - and it didnt boot correctly using a generic CF to IDE adaptor.
I manually specified it to run PIO Mode 1 and it ran correctly!

Try that if you can - or set it to the slowest possible hard drive access
mode you can

Firstly, Thanks Don and Jack for pointing out what I had done.

Secondly, here is my question:

I'm trying to use a VIA VT-310DP motherboard with m0n0wall
(http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/mainboards/mini_itx/vt_310dp/). I follow
the normal procedure with the CF card etc etc. However, when I turn on the
machine to boot m0n0wall, it hangs after doing the CPU and memory tests. It
does recognise that the CF card is there and is the primary HDD. I've tried
playing with the BIOS settings and have checked for a BIOS update (there
isn't one) but it still hangs at the same point. I'm using the Casetronic
FB-4652 CF Adaptor and a Scandisk CF Card. I have also tried about 4 or 5
different IDE/CF adaptors (1 SATA/CF adaptor) and CF cards. All my
combinations of adaptors and cards work with the WRAP boards I normally use.

If anybody has had this problem (or similar) and got it working, has
m0n0wall working on this board or has any advice it would be VERY much
