When the USB-drive is connected at boottime the eCS bootmanager selection screen appears normally, but the boot of both JFS-partitions fails. Something is displayed on the screen which looks like the bootsector of the selected partition! When I select another partition (WinXP-NTFS, eCS 1.2 HPFS, SUSE LInux Reiser2) booting succeeds normally.
The eCS bootnamager and all bootable partitions are on the first primary PATA drive. The first slave drive does not have a bootable partition (only 1 JFS data partition), the USB drive does not contain a bootable partition, only 1 JFS data partition.
When the USB-drive is _not_ connected at boot-time the boot of all partition succeeds normally. When I connect it later after bootup this drive it is accessable normally.
So it is only a JFS-boot-problem.
Didn't see any reaction so far.....

Today I installed eCS 2.0 beta3: the problem is still there!
Who doesn't have USB-drives these days?
Who thinks this lack of response/activity motivates me to report more problems?
