Hi,

I bought a double pack of 16GB 800x on a good deal. Still, over-kill. You can only have 4 GB of usable card space for Kernels. 8 GB is more than enough. You also have the USB Thumb Drive option for Kernels as well.

Cheers!!

If you format the CF with Ext2 you can use it up to 32GB (more of 32 is too expensive)
And boot the Kernels with CFE is also possible , Change --fs=fat to -fs=ext2 .

A Good Choice are CFs with Industrial from Transcend. I have a 4GB with 2 Partitions (2GB Fat16 and 2 GB Ext2).

But an Linux on a CF in our X1000 is slower than a USB3-Stick with a PCIe-USB3-Card.
I can boot Linux from a USB3-Port (initrd & Kernel on CF) ;)
