Problem installing PLug-and-play

Post by Jean-Paul Bi » Tue, 17 Jan 1995 23:02:01



I have problems with my CD-ROM (which works fine under MS-DOS/Win)
Here is my config.
    486dx33 4 Mb RAM
    amibios
    hd1 = IDE Western digital Caviar 420 Mb
    hd2 = IDE Conner 170 Mb
    Master Boomer Mediavision (~sounblaster)
    fd1 = 1.44 Mb
    cdrom PANASONIC CR-562-B

     Linux Yggdrasil Plug-and-Play november 1994 (including support of 'mscdex' CDROM)

    1. I made a boot floppy from the cdrom with the files bootflpy.720 (also with bootflpy.144)
       Then I restarted the computer, LILO loaded itself and then hang up with a kernel panic.
       I started again with a 1.44 Mb : idem
    2. I removed the sound card , and then restarted the computer, this time the kernel loaded
       itself without panic but it didn't find the CD-ROM, instead it looked for a nec210
       IDE CDROM, and tried to read the hard disk (I don't know itfit was trying to read the
       first or the second disk). After many tries the system hang up with a 'VFS' message
       stating that the root filesystem was not found.
    3. When I try to run the runlinux utility, the system reboots.
    4. When I try to run bootlin, the system starts to load the kernel and then hangs up with a
       message : ... kernel loaded too high ....

Can anyone help me ?

Thanks

Jumper your drive to ID 0.

Because most "boot disk suppliers" obviously are not able to handle
drive IDs and multiple drives upon one cable, I do it for them;
but only since 1.1.81.
