I agree but the board no longer boots.

Perhaps it should be.

To be honest, I don't know. To quote the manual, "The system wills entry 
OpenLinux automatically if no any boot devices exist. (ex. SD card/USB 
memory stick/SATA hard disk)" and that was the case prior to my attempt 
to install centos.

I'm not bothered about not being able to boot into OpenLinux. I'll try a 
few more things.
