AHA2940UW boot problems

Post by Tracey Bernat » Wed, 21 Aug 1996 04:00:00



I'm trying to install Linux on a P166 PCI with the aha2x4x.s boot image
and everything goes great until it probes the bus andtries to find my
TEAC SCSI CDROM.

scsi : aborting command due to timeout : pid 2, scsi0, channel 0, id 1,
lun 0 Test Unit Ready 00 00 00 00 00 00

which repeats continuously

I have a 2 GB U/W IBM SCSI on LUN 0
TEAC SCSI 6x CDROM on LUN 1
SEAGATE U/SCSI on LUN 3
AHA2740UW on LUN 7

everything works with Win 95, so I suspect kernel config problems.
If anyone has had luck getting it to boot up, please let me know.

You should disable scsi-wide-negotiation for the cdrom-device in
the adapter bios

1. Starts x86 boot from AHA2940UW disk then says no boot disk

I replaced an AHA1542 card with an AHA2940UW card in a pc.

During boot, the pc loads the master boot record (MBR) from SCSI
disk 0, it in turn starts the Solaris boot process, which
then falls into auto configuration because Solaris can not
find bootable disk.

I suspect that Solaris places /devices/*isa* info into the
MBR and somehow I need to replace that info with /devices/*pci*
to recognize the new card.

I'll probably temporarily install both cards and connect
disk 0 to the AHA2940UW. That way, I bet Solaris will find /devices/*isa*
and become happy enough to continue the boot. Then a "b -r" should
install the necessary /devices/*pci*, after which, I should be able
to remove the AHA1542. One more "b -r" and the AHA1542 should be
history.

If you've fought this battle before your successful solution is
appreciated.
