Asus A7V Promise ATA-100 Controller not recognized even with boot parameters
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:39 EDT
The Asus A7V onboard Promise ATA-100 controller is not recognized or seen
even when the 'correct' idex= boot parameters are supplied.
cat /proc/pci shows ioports 8800, 8400, 8000, 7800.
According to the various instructions I am supposed to boot with the
following command from the boot disk
linux ide2=8800,8402 ide3=8000,7802
But only the 'regular' ide0, and ide1 controllers are recognized.
Support for these newer IDE chipsets will come with the 2.4 kernel.
Deferring for now.
