If it only worked (on my PC). I have been trying release after release after release but this OS does not boot on my hardware. I have GA-965P-DS3 mother board with two SATA burners. IDE port disconnected due to JMicron, E6600 Dual Core. It won't budge. All I get is a blank screen with the cursor blinking on booting and it just stays there. My previous PC was an Intel Pentium 4 2.0 with Intel board I think, worked fine...eCS also won't boot ;) I think it's JMicron or the SATA devices that cause the problems. My HD is also SATA.

Last I heard, there was no support for USB, SATA, or NTFS. And it is "alpha". So don't be too surprised if it doesn't work perfectly (or at all, even).
