SOLVED: PowerShot SX 110 is won't boot

Hi everyone,

I can't get my SX 110 to boot from the card.
That's what I've done:
[Note: my card is /dev/sdb1]

I made 2 partitions
1.) create a     16 MB   FAT 16   bootable
2.) Rest    3.73 GiB   FAT32   
I format partitions respectively   
 mkdosfs -n CANON_CHDK /dev/sdb1
 mkdosfs -n CANON /dev/sdb2
      
Put data in Bootrecord   

[I noticed, that the actual filename is DISKBOOT.BIN and not - as stated in the FAQ - "BOOTDISK", so I altered this - I tried it also the other way round but it didn't work either]

 echo -n DISKBOOT | dd bs=1 count=8 seek=64 of=/dev/sdb1
      
then I mount the device      
   mount /dev/sdb1 /media/CANON_CHDK
   cd /media/CANON_CHDK
      
   unzip /media/work/work/10_canon/chdk.bin/sx110is-100b-0.9.9-908-full.zip
   cd ..
   umount /dev/sdb1 /media/CANON_CHDK
After that I remove the card from the reader, make it read-only and put it into the cam.
When I turn it on in Display-Mode I can access the option to upgrade to CHDK Firmware.
Pressing <ALT> will bring the CHDK Menu.
But after shutting down the cam - or switching to record mode - No CHDK stuff anymore.

Any help is appreciated.

Note that on a 4gb card, you can just format the whole thing FAT16, which will be much more convenient (at the expensive of wasting a bit of space)

No. The file is called DISKBOOT.BIN. The canon bootable flag is the literal string "BOOTDISK"
Don't forget what the H stands for.
