Description benti 2000-01-25 20:05:45 UTC
I just upgraded to redhat 6.1 from 6 and now I can not boot from my dos
partition. The linux partition works fine and linux comes up ok. When I
type in dos at the lilo prompt it comes back with " Non bootable disk
please boot from bootable disk. I checked with fdisk to see if the
partition is still there and found it was. I booted from floopy and went
into the c disk and all the data is still there. One more thing, when the
system is booting up my cmos reports a virus in my boot sector. I had this
problem once before when I upgraded fro 5.2 to 6 and it was cause by
selecting a custom loader during the install. When I reload the default
loader it worked fine. I don't know if this is causing my problem now but
can someone help with my problem.

What sort of hardware was this on and what does your /etc/lilo.conf look like? 
Do you continue to have problems with more current releases of Red Hat Linux?
