My cdrom only recognized after dos recognizes it

My cdrom only recognized after dos recognizes it

Post by kendall sh » Thu, 21 Dec 1995 04:00:00

I have an Acculogic sIDE-2/PCI card. On the
primary channel are two hard drives and on the second channel there is
a single Sony CDU55E cdrom jumpered as master. If I cat /proc/pci, it

Host bridge: Silicon Integrated Systems 85C496 (rev 1).

Something about my diamond stealth 64 dram, and:

IDE controller: CMD 640A (rev 2). 8259's interrupt 15.

I've added

append = "hda=serialize"

to my lilo.conf (as README.ide instructed me to do)

append = "hda=serialize hdc=cdrom"


Detecting CD-ROM: DRDY error: status 0xff

Anyway, if I start up from power off and boot linux, my cd-rom drive is
not recognized. But If I boot dos with acculogic's driver (which
recognizes the cd-rom drive), and then reboot and enter linux, the
cd-rom drive is recognized. The same has been true for NT, however I
found a driver for NT for this card on acculogic's bbs and now NT
recognizes the cd-rom after a cold boot, and there after linux does too.

Does anyone have any idea about how I can remedy this situation. I
suppose I could start using loadlin...


1. dos won't recognize my extended dos partition

  I'm getting a trouble in my comp.  Any help is welcome.
  I have a HD with a dos primary partition (+- 1100megs ), a dos
extended partition with 170 megs ) and 500megs for ext2 and linux
  My problem - windows or dos simply can't read from the extended dos
partition.  I don't remeber why, but the extended  partition is on
/dev/hda6, so i guess that is the problem because Partition Magic give
an error telling that when the dos partitions are not chained by order
some data could be inaccessible.  Also, the dos fdisk doesn't work,
and i can't mount the partition from linux ( it always gives errors ).

  Is there any chance to recover the data in that partition ?  Does
anyone know any program to link the partitions by my desired order, or
some other soluction?

  Thank you very much!
