Description Need Real Name 2000-10-13 06:42:13 UTC
(I didn4t do any "starting disk" :( )

I tried to install RH7.0 (in server and "everything" modes) to my computer 
and when everything look fine after installation program, I reboot my 
machine and Lilo didn4t work, only letters "LI" came out after system 
checking. Eg. RH6.2 works well in this machine.

My computer has celeron 400MHz with 64MB SDRAM. It has trhee hardisk 10GB 
(1) an two 6,4GB. At the begin I have Windows on my 10GB hardisk and 
another 6,4GB (2) was formated for Windows. Another 6,4GB (3) hardisk have 
31MB for /boot, 100MB for swap and rest for the root (/). 1 and 2 hardisk 
are in same IDEBus and 3 hardisk is mastermode in another bus where CDROM 
driver is in slavemode.

I tried to install lilo to /dev/hda (=hardisk 1) to mbr, but it failed to 
start at the boot. /dev/hda (windows) was default option. I make my mbr 
again and now windows start right away.

In another my machine my CDs4 worked fine.

Does anyone else have the same problem?

Had same problem once. Try to configure in BIOS all disk's mode to mode 2. Also 
CD-ROM... This solved my problem.
