X15 attempt at SATA boot failed


I just tried to set up the X15 for a direct boot from eSATA. I purchaed an external SATA drive and eSATA cable and wrote the latest X-15 debian image to it via dd. I removed the R444 and placed a jumper from J3 1-2 and attempted a boot - FAILED. The power LED illuminates. The LED between the power connector and the RAM briefly lights up for a few seconds then goes dark. No activity on the screen and the hard drive does not spin up. Am I missing a step or did I just fry my board?



Same answer as before.
