Thanks Mateusz,
  I have the the ARCHs definitions properly set  in the config file, so
this is not an issue. What I saw is that you're not initializing the 2nd
partition which I did in the past and it worked.
Hence I will try again with just 1 partition, I have set my console speed
in the board BIOS to 9600 bps. If not successful again. I will set both to
38400.
Dzienky,
Dimitar
