I boot from floppy and it still works.
You can search for the macro name in configtool using 'Edit/Find'.

OK, now I understand, I had to select for GRUB startup... But what if I
want to boot form floppy????

Marcin,
I had a similar issue that I think I solved by checking on
CYGHWR_HAL_I386_PC_LOAD_HIGH (This option enables building RAM
applications which have a start address outside of the area used by
redboot_GRUB.) The other description says 'Load into higher memory
(2MB)'.

Have you tried that?

I really stuck on this problem for i386 target. I've searched maillist
several times and found only this thread:

http://sourceware.org/ml/ecos-discuss/2006-04/msg00184.html

Which is about exactly the same problem as I have.

I tried also both types of discovering available RAM - bios and
hardcoding. No results. All I need is about 1MB for application...

Thanks in advance for any help

Marcin
