When installing Redhat 6.0-6.2 on a system with a ASUS K7V motherboard and
a Seagate ST33240A HD, drive partitioning and rest of install goes
smoothly. When reboot system, the BIOS is probed and causes a memory dump
0F 32 89 C7 89 D5 83 7C 24 14 01 75 02 89 EF 8B 44 24 18 89 and system
locks up. Am able to boot from the floppy to the HD and system will boot
normally, but cannot boot normally from HD. Have loaded Redhat 6.0 on
this drive on a older machine. Loaded on a Western Digital IDE drive and it
works fine, problem appears to be the Seagate ST33240A drive and the IDE
controller on the motherboard.
Could you give some more info on the seagate drive (geometry, size, etc)?
Honestly this sounds like a hardware compatibility issue since another hard
Drive specs are:
On a side note, I've had problems with this model drive under Windows 95 where
the OS would detect a bad sector at boot, would run scandisk and it would not
detect a bad sector, next reboot it would say it had bad sector again.
I suspect then this is a hw issue.
