Large EIDE drive installations

Large EIDE drive installations

Post by wbox.. » Tue, 23 May 1995 04:00:00



I am having problems installing linux on my large EIDE drive (disk 2). Linux does not
recognise the drive at all. I have two drives a 420Mb EIDE and a 730Mb EIDE.

The first drive has 32 sectors per track (which linux hates) and the second drive
has only 16. My first drive contains only DOS/Windows, the second has OS/2 and
hopefully one day Linux.

I have tried with the boot: RAMDISK hd= ..... option, but that only changes
the recognition of my first drive.

Any ideas at all? The FAQs etc haven't been a lot of help.

Thanks

Wayne.
