I have a problem installing Redhat. I am running an Adaptec 1542 with 2
scsi cdroms and a Micropolis 3gig scsi hard drive. I can create the linux
partitions fine and install all of the files. Then it gets to the final
step "Installing Bootloader" and fails. It says I can try again, but I can
not install it. I've tried installing it to the Master Boot Record, to the
first sector of the partition, and to a floppy, but none will work, it
doesn't even seem like it's attempting it.
This is consistent, I've tried three times.
After all of this, I reboot, and in DOS my partition table is corrupted. I
can repair it with Nortons, and then my linux partition no longer exists.
It's a loop. Make linux partition, install it, fail on bootloader
installation, reboot, partition table corrupted. As soon as I fix it, back
to the beginning.
Any suggestions are much appreciated.
