CHDK don't work on SX1 IS!?

Please, need help.

I downloaded SDM Installer and did everything like it said,
(downloaded 'common_files.zip & sx1-200h-0.9.8-794-full_BETA.zip',
extracted them in the same directory,
created 2 partitions on the SDHC card 16gb,
formatted them
and at the end it said ok your card is ready,

lock the card and put it in the camera) but when I put the card in the camera and press the power button there is no reaction, my camera is simply dead and can't turn her on.

I am from Europe, my firmware is 2.0.1.0, SDHC SanDisk 16gb and just don't know how to make this CHDK work.

Please, help me.

Thanx.

That is not your firmware version. See http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#Q._How_can_I_get_the_original_firmware_version_number_of_my_camera.3F

Your camera probably uses 201a, not 200h. This is supported in CHDK, not sure about SDM.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

You're right, my firmware version is ''Firmware Ver GM2.01A'', so that means that I have to use ''sx1-201a-0.9.8-794-full_BETA''?

I also saw that SDM is having on the list only 200h and if SDM is not supporting 201a with what software can I install it on memory card?

Thanx.

Yes.
The CHDK package filename scheme is like this:
s2is-100e-0.9.8-780-full.zip
  |    |    |    |   |
  |    |    |    |   +-- package type, full means: complete package incl. lang files, fonts  etc.
  |    |    |    +------ SVN trunk version, the development build number (automatically set)
  |    |    +----------- CHDK version number (manually set)
  |    +---------------- firmware version
  +--------------------- camera model

To prepare your SD card you can use the SDM installer (sdminste.exe) from the "common_files.zip" package from the SDM homepage.

a) Partition your card, format the first (small) partition, make this small partition CHDK-bootable;
b) unzip all files from the 'full' CHKD package ("sx1-201a-0.9.8-794-full_BETA") to the root of this partition
c) then swap the partitions and format the 2nd (big) one,
d) unzip all files from the 'full' CHKD also to the root of this big partition
e) swap the partitions again, lock the card

...don't forget: store additional files (e.g. grids, scripts, text files...) always on the "big" partition, this is also the partition with the CHDK config file.
