My SD card on which I kept Windows Phone 7 is probably broken because it is not readable even though I connect it through adapter and not through the phone so I can only use USB to install the old system.
On HD2 I can boot Windows Phone but only to make an emergency call and not further.
Do I need to install some drivers on my PC? Are there any for linux?
Thanks in advance for help.
you should be able to flash wm6.5 from your sdcard.
look in your downloaded extracted wm6.5 folder for a file called RUU_signed.nbh, and rename it leoimg.nbh and put it on the root of your sdcard.
Go to bootloader screen and it should flash it.
Be sure to use the correct wm6.5 rom for your phone, tmous phones can be bricked if wrong rom flashed.
good luck, and welcome to the forum
Edit; Sorry, just re-read your post and sdcard is duff, try https://www.winehq.org/
Edit2; which wp7 rom was it? If it was an early rom, it might be storagelocked, and inaccessible. All of the latest wp7 roms do not lock your sdcard so that you can still access the 200mb fat32 partition, you can resize it to the full extent of the sdcard using gparted, and re-format it. Then flash from sdcard as above.
Else unlock sdcard with an old nokia phone, or buy/borrow an sdcard
