Can anyone please help me with this.
I've installed Solaris 7 x86 on my PC and been using it for a while.
Without any reason it now gets to the secondary boot and after the (b)
or (i) prompt it says
Run Error: File not found.
could not run now
The setup of the PC is
ide1 - master: IBM 10G Hdisk
ide1 - slave: cdrom
ide2 - master: ibm .25G Hdisk
ide2 - slave: none.
(all ide are on the motherboard)
The 10G is partitioned
part1 - Dos Windows (2G)
part2 - Dos extended (4G)
part3 - Solaris (2G)
part4 - Linux (2G)
the .25G is partitioned
part1 - Linux (100M)
part2 - Type 82 made Solaris swap
part3 - Type 82 made Linux swap
After a lot of trouble getting it to install on the 10G drive Solaris
has worked for a number of weeks. The only difference I can think of
is that I shut down Sol with reboot rather than the usual halt. I've
only seen this error before if I try to swapon the solaris partition
from Linux but this time I hadn't even booted to linux before the
I've tried to do an update from the Solaris CD and it can see the
hdisk partitions and slices fine.
Any help on how I can get this system back to booting without a whole
re-install would be gratefully received.
