were do i put this file boot=/dev/mmcblk0p1 disk=/dev/mmcblk0p2 ssh quiet,thanks mickh
The file is cmdline.txt, open it with a text editor (I suggest Notepad++) and edit it, make sure everything is on 1 line.

Everything but the SYSTEM-file needs to be on SD.
SYSTEM-file can be on SD/USB/SMB/NFS, if you have SYSTEM on USB/SMB/NFS you need to specify it's location in cmdline.txt.

Great! Enjoy. Maybe in the future you'd like to try my custom version? I dubbed it "OpenELEQ": definitive version is still under construction but a I have a working version posted in the OpenELEC forum.

I recently got a second pi. Pretty good deal for the entire setup. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00L87YMGM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 However I's starting to think the board is bad. I am trying to use the same setup as on my first pi and with two different flash drives I have received the same error. ***Error in mount_flash: Mount_common:could not mount label=SYSTEM*** Does anyone have any ideas?
That error usually means you have not labelled your sd card 'SYSTEM'

I'm guessing in this case it means something different since in the error it sees the sd card is labeled SYSTEM I found another way to try to get it going. I;m going to try https://www.squirrelhosting.co.uk/hosting-blog/hosting-blog-info.php?id=9 tomorrow and see if it works. Not sure if i will notice a performance difference in it, but at least it will give me an indication if it's the pi or my configuration. It's just so odd that the set up on my other pi is identical and yet it won't work on the new one.
