Description Sanjuro 2000-08-09 12:40:49 UTC
When the boot partition is above the 1024 cylinder limit LiLo generates a fatal error because cylinder is > 1023.

Setup should include the keyword "lba32" in lilo.conf when installing above 1024 cylinder limit.

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2000-08-09 14:54:00 UTC
Was this using a pre-existing partition for /boot?  The installer currently does
not impose restrictions
on pre-existing partitions being used.  If a boot partition is created from
scratch then it is forced to lie < 1024 cyl.

Comment 2 Sanjuro 2000-08-09 17:31:17 UTC
I used an existing partition and mounted it as /. No other partitions where mounted.

The installer does not have to impose restrictions on creating partitions any longer because as of Lilo 21.4.2 the 1024 cylinder limit has been solved (if 
the BIOS supports this of course).
