I have a Naomi with a CF reader and want to change this to a Netboot setup with a Raspberry Pi.



I already have a Pi that I can use, and although the LCD screen looks nice i'm happy to begin with a laptop connected via WiFi to confirm its all working as it should.

I'm not sure whether the Zero Key / Null Pic in my Netdimm will work for Netbooting.  I've read that a CF setup uses a different pic and that to Netboot I will need another one.  Can anyone confirm please?

Some will - the only way to find out is to netboot a game, if it crashes after a few minutes then the pic is incorrect.

You'll need to change the jumpers in the dimm to netboot instead of booting from cd/cf and then set the network settings in the bios menu.

If you need a netboot pic I can program one for you
