LILO & partitions starting AFTER cyl 1024?

LILO & partitions starting AFTER cyl 1024?

Post by Jered J Flo » Thu, 08 Sep 1994 01:03:07

I have a BusLogic 946C with the "DOS space >1GB enabled", but I can't get
LILO to work right! My partition table looks somewhat like this:

DOS    Cyl 1     -> Cyl 1024
Linux  Cyl 1025  -> Cyl 1654

When LILO boots, it says "LI", and hangs.

1. lilo not working on my old 486 and disk geo > 1024 cyl

Hi folks:

I installed a vanilla installation of linux (2.0.13) on my older 486 w/
16mb RAM. The installation went perfectly smooth. I installed the lilo
boot loader on the mbr of the disk. The disk is a WD Caviar with 2585
cylinders. The bios is old and does not support LBA translation. Well,
to make a long story short, when I boot up the computer, it will hang
with lilo. It gets as far as:


and just hangs after that. I can boot it up using a floppy and mounting
/dev/hda1 just fine. The disk is brand new. Any suggestions? Thanks in
