SCSI HD's not working with new CDU535 boot disk?

SCSI HD's not working with new CDU535 boot disk?

Post by Gordon Mulcast » Sun, 21 Apr 1996 04:00:00

I have installed (on a 486SX with Adaptec 1542b SCSI card and a Sony
CDU535 CD) Linux ver 1.2.1 from the InfoMagic _LINUX Developers Resource_
CDs, using the Slackware distribution and everything works fine.

I just bought the book _Linux SECRETS_ which comes with a CD containing
Slackware Linux 3.0 (Linux 1.2.13). The boot disk I made from this CD has
a problem initializing the Adaptec controller, am I seeing things or did
something change in the scsi drivers???

1. *NEW* boot disk won't, *OLD* boot disk will!

 A couple of days ago, I installed the Slackware D-series that I had
downloaded and stored on a *DOS* partition on my Fujitsu 128MB m.o. scsi
drive (hooray!).

 At one point I was told that I was required to install the Linux kernel
if I wanted to use the C compiler, so I did.

 When there was no more software to install, I was asked (and I think
advised) to make a new boot disk, which I did.

 However, when I tried to 'reboot' using my new boot disk, I got a
"kernel panic" and a dead machine, so I punched the RESET button, but the
same thing happened: kernel panic.

 So, I tried booting with my old boot disk, which worked!

 Question: How come my old boot disk works but my supposedly new boot
disk doesn't?

 Followup: Is this something I should be concerned about or can I just
recycle that "new" boot disk?
