Installing RH5 on SCSI HD with AHA2920a card

Installing RH5 on SCSI HD with AHA2920a card

Post by Sciences Support Assista » Fri, 17 Apr 1998 04:00:00

Hi, I was trying to install RH5.0 on a new SCSI HD, I have a adaptec 2920a
card, it is a future domain chip based card.  When I boot the machine
with the installation floppy and install it, the program can't recognize
the 2920a card.  How do I get around of this problem?
By the way, I have an IDE disk on the same machine with RH5.0
on one of the partition of that IDE disk. (the other partition is win95).
I used to re-compile the kernel to build the driver for 2920a directly
into the kernel after the installation on the IDE partition, but now I
want to put RH5.0 on the new SCSI drive, how do I do it?


1. RH5.1 install pb : scsi hd parity error


My problem is that I can't install Debian 2.0 or RedHat 5.1.

In my computer I have a 2940UW, bios 1.23
id 0 : a Quantum Fireball ST 4.3 harddrive
id 3 : a 12/20Plextor CDRom
id 5 : a Traxdata CDRW4260 cdwriter.

I presently use RedHat 5.0 without any problem.
When I try to install RH5.1, using the cd to boot, an error occurs, when
its scans the SCSI bus

    scsi 0 channel 0 id 0 lun 0
    parity error
    aborting command
    inquiry 00 00 00 ff 00

    infinite ( Host 0 abort (pid 1) timed out - trying harder
    loop    (SCSI Bus is being reset for host 0 chanel 0

On RH5.1 to those errors, I have to swith to console 3 or 4.

I had the same problem with I once tried to install debian 2.0, before
installing my cdwriter.
Does my hd need to be repaired or changed ?
