LILO BUG at rebooting system
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:36:33 EDT
(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?
I am experiencing the same problem (tried several installs with various options
~294 meg RAM
8.4 gb Maxtor IDE HD
(all other cards/devices removed for troubleshooting)
Had same problem once. Try to configure in BIOS all disk's mode to mode 2. Also
CD-ROM... This solved my problem.
Did you have your boot partition marked active?
