Ramdisk error on bootup

Ramdisk error on bootup

Post by Zahir Lalan » Thu, 04 Jun 1998 04:00:00


I am trying to install Slackware 3.4 onto my machine. The LILO instruction
screen comes up fine waiting for extra parameters. I press enter and the
system shows that it is loading the ramdisk. then it gives error 0x10. It
does this every time. I have tried with version 3.02 and same problem.

I have a PC with 233Mhz MMX chip, Intel Motherboard, 3G SCSI disk (1G dos,
1G NTFS, 1G linux), 128M RAM, ATAPI CDROM.

Any clues about the Ramdisk - I cannot see where to interpret error codes
from the docs.

1. Error while loading ramdisk: Error 0x08

Hello, world.

I am having some problems with my slackware 1.1.2. I wanted to Linux this
morning (new verb), but my root filesystem came up as read-only. So I
tried to boot with the bootkernel to be able to edit some files on my
root-partition. But after I typed mount root=/dev/sda2, which is my
Linux root-filesystem, I get the message Error 0x08. After that it
continuously tries to boot, but the same error message appears.

Then I tried booting the ramdisk, but no results either. In fact, the
same error message appears. I really don't understand this, because I
installed Linux with the same bootkernel flop.

I anyone has any suggestions, thanks in advance.
