I found that my problem is exactly as PR: 126972 and increasing NKPT
solves it. Even I am able to boot from USB.
I have question about setting NKPT. The default value is 30 and
according reply to this PR it should be able to use mfs root with size
up to ~120Mb.
My uncompressed mfs root image is ~70Mb and it should work with the
default value of NKPT.
NKPT means "Actual number of kernel page tables" but how it affect mfs
root? And how to calculate needed value?
Also this board definitely has problems connecting IDE HDD!
