Default Nook Tablet stuck with no OS

So here is my issue. Last week I formated my ROM, so for a while it was stuck in internal flashed CWM 5.5.0.4 Than I flashed some restore file which fixed that issue.

However I was dumb enough to exit the internal CWM before flashing any Andoird OS zip meaning it has no Os inside. Since restart it gave me B&N factory reset option. I did. Than it gets stuck just past account log in info. No surprise because there is nothing on the EMMC.

Now I was able to boot CWM from SD, but when I try to install any zip file it says Aborted. Also there is never enough room left on my SD after I image the CWM image file.

So here is my question one. How can I actually have enough space to copy the Stock OS zip and flash it.

Most importantly I did have internal CWM 5.5.0.4 inside. Now when I hit B&N reset I am assuming it got wiped. Is there a way to access that internal CWM if not.

You can resize the partition of the SD card (after you flash CWM on it) using a partition manager, that will give you full access to all of it, or format the SD card and put these files onto an SD card.

So I able to boot on sd card, but when I try to flash anything this is the message I get. So once again I am stuck at best on CWM because it's not letting me install anything.

That (status 0) error sometimes is solved by mounting /system manually.

Those two zip files will also do nothing. The former is the zip file to root, which will do nothing if you really have no stock os installed. The latter I'm not sure about but again I don't think its something that can be flashed without an OS already installed. Try flashing cm7 or another rom.

edit: now that I've looked at my files on my computer, the latter is not a flashable zip file for clockworkmod. Its the cwm image for burning to sd card.

You gotta do some reading man if you're going to be flashing stuff; don't just try to flash any zip file you see.

Did you try bypassing the registration screen?

Yes that's what I thought. Problem is after I write the Boot.rmg for SD CWM 5.5.0.4 there isn't enough space left to put the Os.zip on the SD. Tried a CWM SD I used to flash my Nook Color which does leave me enough room, but with that Nook Tablet just boots up normalls

DO NOT USE STUFF FROM OTHER DEVICES UNLESS IT IS STATED IT WILL WORK FOR YOUR DEVICE

Theres no harm here but going down that path is a very very bad idea. The devices are different.

So I finally managed to find the right SD CWM Boot that allows me to boot in CWM and leaves me enough room to put ROM zip and what not in the card after imaging.

So I tried flashing Nook Tablet stock os and here is the message I get.

E:Eoor in/sdcard/nookcolor_1_4_1_signed.zip
(Status 0)
Installation Abroted.

As a last resort I flashed CM9 which does finish the installation, but than when I restart it shows the black B&N screen saying device must reset and I am back to square one.

So now I am good with botting inside CWM. Just need help with successfully flashing the Nook Stock zip.

By the way me personally can't stand Nook Stock OS. I use a CM7 Mirage on my Nook Color. This is for a friend who I convinced to use Cyanogenmod on his Nook Tablet. He doesn't like CM, so I am trying to get him back to his stock os.

This is for a nook tablet yes? Why are you using a nook color zip file?
