Acer Altos 7000 and AIC-7770 SCSI controller

Acer Altos 7000 and AIC-7770 SCSI controller

Post by Kalamoukos Dimitri » Tue, 28 Mar 1995 18:39:06



I have an Acer Altos 7000 computer (Pentium, 32Mb RAM, 3.6Gb HDD
Micropolis 1936)

I have tried to install Linux Slackware 2.1.0, using the scsi boot
disk, unsuccessfully.

I got the following messages while trying to boot:

aha274x warning: ignoring channel B of 274x-twin
aha274x: extened translation disable
AHA274X AT EISA SLOT 9:
      irq 11
      bus release time 60 bclks
      data fifo threshold 100%
      SCSI CHANNEL A:

aha274x: attempting to reset scsi bus and card
scsi: aborting command due to timeout: pid 0, scsi 0, lun 0, test

Only a hard reset will correct the situation....
Acer's BIOS is : EISA Pentium Bios V1.2R3
                       Adaptec AIC-7770 BIOS v1.1

Anybody with the same problem...???

1. Adaptec aic 7770 scsi controller

    Well, does anyone have this problem?  I have an hp netserver (old)
and it has one Adaptec aic 7770 scsi controller.  I need it to work in
order to install redhat 6.2.  I can install turbolinux, and open BSD,
but I can't get the controller to work with redhat 6.2.  Any
suggestions?
