: AS Subject, can linux boot from 2nd EIDE harddisk ? I think the 1024
: cylinders barrier is not a issue here since the Eide, but boot from 2nd
EIDE does not in and of itself save you from the infamous BIOS 1024
cylinders restriction; LBA does, by converting some of those "extra"
cylinders into "extra" heads/sides. However, most new BIOSes support
LBA, and most newer drives (EIDE) support LBA at some level, so this all
can be quite academic...
If you're using LBA on your hard disk, remember to check out the "linear"
option in your lilo configuration.
Me, clear as mud today.
