Adaptec AIC-7870W (AHA-294x) Trouble

Adaptec AIC-7870W (AHA-294x) Trouble

Post by Brad Garc » Tue, 12 Dec 1995 04:00:00

Ok, I've tried a number of things now.

I'm trying to install RedHat 2.1, and I'm using the boot0027.img for
a bootdisk, replacing the included kernel with...
  The 1.2.13 kernel with the 2940 patch applied.
  The straight 1.3.35 kernel.
And I've also tried the boot image for RedHat called 2940.img.

Nothing works.  But the hardware works fine under DOS.
I'm using an Intel motherboard with the AIC-7870W built-in (INT3180).

Here's what I'm getting on bootup (using 2940.img):
(Sorry, it won't let me scroll back up to see more)

ANY help would be appreciated!

1. AHA-294X/AIC-78XX PCI SCSI Controller

Dear all:

        I'm sorry first if this is not the right place to locate the queston.
My question is "does the current version of Linux support "Adaptec
AHA-294X/AIC-78XX PCI SCSI Controller"?
        I checked the related document and found it only supports AHA-284X
and could not find anything related to AHA-294X and could not use the boot
disk to recognize my HD controller.

        Please tell me the answer when you have time. Thanks a lot in
