ASUS A7M266 motherboard incompatible?

Post by Richard J. Shan » Thu, 26 Apr 2001 12:34:23



Help, I have the subject motherboard and I can't install Mandrake Linux 7.2.
The system
just hangs at the beginning of the install.  I can't find any info on the
board other than Red
Hat says it's not a goodness.  Has anyone successfully installed any Linux
on this system?

Is the motherboard working properly?  Can you, for example, boot
from a DOS or Windows floppy disk?  

When you say "at the beginning of the install", can you be
more specific?  What is the very last thing printed on your
monitor screen before it hangs?

1. Poweroff error from 2.4.20-pre5-ac1 w/ Asus A7M266-D motherboard AND question

First the question:

Why does Linux detect my AMD chipset as ONLY the MP and not the MPX? I thought the A7M266-D had the MPX?
The manual says it does

Secondly the error:

On poweroff: I see:

hdc: failed to unregister!

I have mapped hdc to sdc0 (via SCSI Emulation)

hdc: YAMAHA CRW2100E, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

SCSI subsystem driver Revision: 1.00
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Vendor: YAMAHA    Model: CRW2100E          Rev: 1.0N
Type:   CD-ROM                             ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 40x/40x writer cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray

Just to also mention I have enabled the experimental AMD Power Management:

md76x_pm: Version 20020730
amd76x_pm: Initializing northbridge Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] AMD-760 MP [IGD4-2P] System Controller
