Description rnagise 1998-12-06 11:53:23 UTC
I tried to install redhat 5.1 on my system which includes 2 SCSI hard drives whose ID's are set to 0 and 1. I have windows 95 on ID 0 and dedicated ID 1(2gb) entirely to Linux. Installation boot disk program itself does not recognise any SCSI's. But during installation, autoprobe does detect the SCSI Drives. Installation goes smoothly-- lets me make a boot diskette and asks me to suggest a place where to install LILO-- I suggest the first block of the root partition which probably is the first block of sda? Now when I want to boot linux from floppy, it trie to start but gets snagged by error 0x10. Then I try rescue, again it gets stumbled by 0x10. What is this error 0x10 and who is responsible for this? I swear I would not have done it if I knew I was upto this. Please, you people out there, drop me a line asap. Thanks. Rao

We will need to know what the hardware is that you are installing with. Also the scsi support is improved in our newest release of 5.2 it may work better for you.

After talking with a developer. He said that it is most likely a floppy media problem and suggest using new diskette. The 0x10 is not scsi related. Also if you installed Linux on the second scsi drive you would want to install lilo to the boot record of the root partition of Linux which is probably /dev/sdb1 or some other number. You should also be safe to use LILO to the master boot record of the first drive since you are only using Windows other than Linux. This configuration has been tested to work properly.
