Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:57:25 EDT
Description of problem:
Hardware: Compaq DP2000 200MHz, 10GB IDE, IDE CD-ROM, onboard video, Compaq
Used ISO images dated 3/14/2003 (shrike-i386-disk#
Unable to install OS either desktop, workstation or Server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
More 50% will give debug dump, the balance will fail during the image
installation ( after format and sector check ) and indicate 'maybe out of disk
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 94282 [details]
Data saved from installation
It appears to come down to the hard drive.
SEAGATE MODEL: ST310211A U Series 5 10 GB
16383 CYL, 16 HDS, 63 SECT
Installation Ok - or at least it starts to install modules
MAXTOR MODEL: 83201A6 3GB
6218 CYL, 16 HDS, 63 SECT
I have finally figured out why I am having problems with the Seagate drive. It
has to do with the drive being in Cable Select mode. In Master mode I have no
problem with the installation. I don't understatnd why, but that's that
solution to my problem.
