Description of problem:
On a compaq 4500 with the scsi-2/e controller (ncr 53c825 chipset). I have
tried all the modules included (just to be thorough) and even an updated
AIC driver from compaq. Cannot install because cant find CD
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run standard installation
Actual Results: No results cant load module
Additional info: Ihave added "mem=exactmap mem=640k@0 mem=511M@1M" to
syslinux.cfg so installation can run per bug 36940
Try making a boot floppy from the boot.img file in the /images directory on the
cd. Boot from this floppy and then select CDROM install. Make sure that the cd
is in the drive. Does this help?
That is how I tried it. The install proceeds to the select cdrom screen. It
displays "SCSI or Other" This is a scsi cdrom so I select SCSI. I then tried
the appropriate module NCR53C8XX without sucess. So just for laughs I tried all
the scsi modules, no success. I then downloaded an updated adaptec driver that
I found through linuxdoc.org still no sucess. I always make sure to have the CD
in the drive when booting.
Try booting with 'linux ide=nodma'. Does that help?
