HELP! Error reading disk 129

HELP! Error reading disk 129

Post by Dan LeHuqu » Thu, 20 Feb 1997 04:00:00

Can anyone help me?

I recently reformatted my 1.2G drive on a P-100 system using DOS
fdisk, OS/2 fdisk and Linux fdisk. I partitioned the drive as follows;
1M for OS/2 Boot Manager; 100M primary partition for Win3.1;
540M primary partition for Win95; 260M extended for OS/2 V3.0;
16M primary Linux Swap & 284M primary Linux native.

I am using OS/2's Boot Manager. The Boot Manager worked great
until I setup the Linux partitions using Linux's fdisk. A message
popped up saying that a problem may occur with booting other operating
systems if I had more than 1024 cylinders on my disk and I proceeded.
I have 2484 cylinders. So now whenever I reboot my system I get a
message that states; < Error reading disk 129. Press any key. >

When I press enter, the boot manager pops up and I can actually boot
Win3.1, Win95 and OS/2 (I boot Linux from a LILO floppy cause I can
never seem to get it to boot from my hard disk). So...  I can access
all operating systems but the above message keeps coming round...
Also... DOS fdisk does not run at all and OS/2 fdisk acts strangely.
Any ideas on how I can fix the boot record?
I've tried DOS fdisk /mbr but that does nothing!



1. Kernel 2.1.129 compile problems

I'm having a problem compiling kernel 2.1.129 under RedHat v5.2 from
pristine sources (not patched).  Kernel 2.1.128 compiled without a hitch
with the same compile options.  During the compile it seems to fail
looking for a file linux/icmpv6.h, even though I did not request IPv6
support.  I did elect to include firewalling/masq/icmpmasq support.
Following is the error I got:

I'm not much of a kernel hacker yet so any help is greatly appreciated.
