Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9811
lilo unable to load from floppy if no IDE hard drive
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:12:48 EDT
I originally installed Linux on an IDE hard drive. I later moved Linux
onto a SCSI IBM DNES-318350 hard drive with a Adaptec AHA2930U2 SCSI
controller. I created a boot floppy using lilo. After removing the IDE
hard drive I rebooted the machine with the floppy. Lilo never loaded, but
instead I got a series of 1 0 1 0 ... I reinstalled my hard drive and
booted from the floppy and lilo loaded correctly.
I have an EPOX EP-MVP3G2 system board.
CORRECTION: I do not recieve 0 1 0 1, I recieve 01 01 01 until I reboot.
I downloaded, compiled, and installed lilo-21.4-2. Seems the problem is fixed.
