Description of problem:
I have a VMIC 7766 VME processor (Pentium III @ 800 MHz) with 1GB of
compact flash disk (1025 MB SanDisk SDCFJ-1024). The BIOS claims UDMA
is disabled. I'm trying to boot RedHat 8.0, but we crash with a
partition check in the flash disk with the standard message
"Serverworks OSB4 in impossible state ... ". I can't find in the BIOS
a way around it.
What do I do next?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from floppy created from 8.0 disc 1
Actual Results: partition check in the flash disk with the standard
message "Serverworks OSB4 in impossible state ... ".
Expected Results: continue with boot process
The standard message regarding disable UDMA and send the message to
firstname.lastname@example.org, but this noede does not exist.
You don't specify which kernel this is; this is supposed to be fixed
in the current kernels for RHL8 and later
