NEWBIE: Get error "Error 0x04" when booting from A1

Post by David N Meze » Wed, 23 Jun 1993 21:30:37



Hello, all.

I've downloaded the latest SLS release and have been trying to install
Linux on my system. When I boot from the A1 disk, I get the LILO instruction
screen all right, but once I press enter I see the following:

        Loading RAMDISK
        Error 0x04
        Loading RAMDISK
        Error 0x04
        Loading RAMDISK
        Error 0x04
        .
        .
        .

        forever!

My hardware:

  486SLC-50 motherboard
  ST-02 drive controller
  ST-296N SCSI drive
  4 MB RAM

Does anyone know what his "0x04" error means? What can I do to solve the
problem?

Thanks in advance,

I removed the st01 I had in my system and installed onto my IDE...
then booted up a non-Lilo setup using bootlin and mboot. Someone told
me that the "compress" in the A1 disks lilo configuration file causes
the problem so if you can boot on *some* machine and fiddle with that ...
maybe you could get around the hangup.
