I currently have 3 hard drives and a CD-ROM on my machine. I am
using LILO to boot from my 1st hard drive to select between:
Windows 95 (on the first hard drive [C: in DOS] by itself)
Windows 3.1 (on the third partition on the 2nd drive [D: in DOS])
Linux (on the second partition on the 2nd drive [/dev/hdb2])
OS/2 (on the third hard drive [C: in OS/2] by itself in HPFS)
Windows 95, Windows 3.1 and Linux work just fine, but when I do
/sbin/liloconfig I get a warning message about BIOS and my OS/2
partition and sure enough it will not boot to OS/2.
I know the OS/2 is on the drive as I installed OS/2 on this drive
by uninstalling the other two hard drives and installing it as the
C: drive. Then I re-installed the other two drives and moved the
OS/2 drive to the third drive position.
Now: Is the problem caused by HPFS? Is it caused by Lilo not
recognizing /dev/hdc? And better yet how do I get out of this
without having to reformat either of my first two drives. (Drives
1 and 2 are both over a gigabyte and are both at least half full.)
All ideas are welcome.
