New install boot failure on HPT374

New install boot failure on HPT374

Post by skaffma » Mon, 06 Mar 2006 04:17:24


I'm tying to install Debian Sarge on a machine with the following spec:

Abit AT7-MAX mobo (built-in HPT 374 fake-raid)
2x 300GB SATA Seagate

I can boot from the CD fine, and install a base system fine, but when I
reboot, it gets through POST, goes to the hightpoint's BIOS screen,
detects the two disks, and then immediately reboots.  There's no error
message that I can see, but it may be that it just happens too quick.

When setting up the partitioning, I tried something very simple - a
single 1GB ext2 partition mounted on /, non-bootable, on the first disk
(/dev/hde).  When the installation gets to the grub install, I told it
to install grub to /dev/hde.

This is the result of a successive number of install attempts, each time
simplifying things down further, but this is as simple as I can get, and
it still fails to boot.

Does anyone out there have experience of this sort of Highpoint hardware
with SATA disks?



1. Boot failure (possible IRQ problem, new sound card installed)

I recently installed the latest NetBSD release as part of a multiboot
system (in other words, NetBSD co-exists on a HD with about five other
OSes). The installation went 'OK', then I later installed an old pnp
soundcard (based on Opti 82C929 chip).

I have the following error message which I don't understand :

ltp0 at isa0 port 0x378-0x376 irq 7
sb0 at isa0 port 0x220-0x22f irq 5 drq 1: dsp v.2.01
audio0 at sb0: half duplex, mmap, independent
opl0 at sb0: model opl3
wss0 at isa0 port 0x530-0x537 irq 10 drq 0 panic : intr established :
irq can't share level triggered with edge-triggered

And then it drops into the debugger.

What is NetBSD doing differently that is causing a problem not
affecting the other OSes I have on this disk ?

Help appreciated.
