Help Ultra66 and RedHat6.1

Post by Pier Naut » Sat, 18 Dec 1999 04:00:00



I have bought a Dell Dimension XPS T500 (1113) with
a Ultra66 (ATA-66) Controller Card for a 20.4 GB MAXTOR harddisk
(ATA-33 Ultra DMA with 2046 cylinders, HEADS 255, SECTORS 63)
Currently the disk has 1 partition of 960 cylinders (FAT32)
I try to install RedHat 6.1 and to create a next partition for Linux
with Linux fdisk, but the disk is not detected after choosing
the type of installation (Custom).

By typing cat "/proc/pci" the following message has displayed on my
monitor:

 PCI devices found:
   Bus  0, device  15, function  0:
     RAID bus controller: Promise Technology IDE UltraDMA/66 (rev 1).
       Medium devsel.  IRQ 15.  Master Capable.  Latency=64.
       I/O at 0x1429.
       I/O at 0x141d.
       I/O at 0x1421.
       I/O at 0x1419.
       I/O at 0x1081.
   Bus  0, device  11, function  0:
     VGA compatible controller: etc.

Restarting the installation by adding the following parameters after

the bootprompt:

boot> linux ide2=0x1429,0x141f

does not help and the disk has still not been detected.

Is there anyone who has solved this problem and can help me?

 I have a Gateway Performance with the Ultra 66, and I got the Linux to

 I used partition /dev/hda4 for the install but nothing has worked.

I used the patches of hedrick to allow usage on my Gateway performance
with Promise U66.

My disk is at hde, not hda. Lilo installs OK.

Look at:
