I seem to be getting constant errors on systems with UDMA66 or 100 drives.
I've switched between standard, ATA-66, and ATA-100 cables and still
recieve the errors. I'll try a new kernel within the next couple of days
to confirm if it's the kernel or another problem
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Restart system
Actual Results: Drive Status Error (drive not ready) for about 5 seconds
then everything goes on as normal.
Use only the 80 wire (66/100 Mhz cables)!!
What controller do you have ? (if unsure, please paste the lspci output)
What drives ? ("cat /proc/ide/hda/model" (or hdb etc) will tell you)
Are you using hdparm or something similar?
Do you have something "append"ed in lilo.conf regarding IDE?
Can you attach your dmesg output please?
Not ready, timeout, working isnt necessarily indicative of anything more than
very aggressive power management by the BIOS
