LILO and Seagate Ontrack

LILO and Seagate Ontrack

Post by Joseph A. Isahac » Fri, 03 Jul 1998 04:00:00

I have to use Seagate's Ontrack software to use the full 6gigs on my new
hard drive.   I installed Linux on a second 1.2 gig drive.  I didn't
want to install lilo on the MBR because i thought it would mess up the
seagate software.  Is this true?  If so how can I get Linux to boot up.
Can I make a boot floppy?

1. LILO and OnTrack Disk Manager Woes

Hello All,

Hoping someone has some experience with a situation like this:

My i486 has a 6.4 Gig hard drive which uses OnTrack's Disk
Manager in MSDOS6.22.  I would like to have Linux and MSDOS
available from the LILO menu at boot up (Linux default).  
What happens now is that it boots straight into MSDOS6.22.
I can however start Linux using the boot disk.

I installed LILO on my root partition which is below the
1024th cylinder.  In Linux fdisk, MSDOS is set as the active
partition.  I deactivated that partition and activated my
root partition, but at boot up (after the OnTrack message)
I got the message to insert a boot disk.  I also tried a
couple of things mentioned in the LILO-mini-HOWTO to no
avail.  Does Red Hat Linux not cooperate nicely with
Disk Manager?

Thanks in advance for any pointers.
