LILO gives error 0x10 with boot disk every time

LILO gives error 0x10 with boot disk every time

Post by Rabi Lahir » Thu, 15 Mar 2001 17:54:32



I'm trying to install Redhat 7.0 on my computer and I cannot get the thing
to boot after installation no matter what I try.  I have several SCSI drives
attached to an adaptec 2940UW.  One drive (sda) has win2k installed on it,
and I'm trying to install Linux onto a different drive (sdd).  I know it's
not the 1024-cylinder problem because the drive I'm installing to only has
522 cylinders.  Installation appears to go fine - I choose to install LILO
but not to the MBR and I create a boot disk, but then when I try to boot
from the boot disk it starts loading linux (it gets to the point where it
says "Loading linux.................") and then it says "Error 0x10".  I
tried installing mandrake 7.0 and the same thing happened.  Anybody have any
idea what's going on?

thanks,

show us your lilo.conf, and the output from `/sbin/lilo -v -v`

I am on Redhat 7.0 updated with a Adaptec 2940U2W.

I changed myself the connector on which the Ultra 2 Wide scsi disks
where
located during setup (on Ultra Wide only) to the connector Ultra 2 Wide.

It was an installtion mistake that I found when I wished to install a
DAT backup
on the 50 pin connector.

Then Linux can not launch anymore.
What I need to do to be able to change of connector from Ultra Wide to
Ultra 2
Wide my disks ?
As I have the same problem as you...

I think your problem seems related to mine.

My lilo.conf is : for Ultra Wide connection

boot=/dev/sda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
timeout=50
message=/boot/message
linear
default=linux

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.2.16-22
        label=linux
        initrd=/boot/initrd-2.2.16-22.img
        read-only
        root=/dev/sda7

/sbin/lilo -v -v :

I have no clue what the implications of this are, but I would expect that
running /sbin/lilo would change any differnces.

Did you have conflicting ID's ?
Did you perhaps not terminate the chain correctly?
