SLS 1.01 won't boot

SLS 1.01 won't boot

Post by Stei » Fri, 30 Apr 1993 19:21:39

I have obtained the latest SLS release, rawrote a1 to Floppy, but
when I try to boot the a1 disk, I see
LILO Loading ramdisk
Error 0x04
Loading ramdisk
Error 0x04

I know that my system can run Linux, and I was able to boot and install
an earlier SLS version (.98.5 and .99.6). However, the a1.test
and H.J.'s boot/rootdisk show the same results.

Unusual configuration items: ST-02 SCSI-controller
The rest: 386-20, 8mb, 240 & 85 mb SCSI-drives

Please help me with this problem. Thank you for your attention.

All people that have this problem seem to have Seagate ST-02 SCSI
controllers. The only solution I know so far is: Go back to a pre-LILO
SLS release.

1. SLS 1.01/Phoenix boot won

I have a Gateway 2000 486/33 with a Phoenix BIOS.  Linux works fine except
for one thing:  I can't reboot.  CTRL-ALT-DEL invokes shutdown, and shutdown
invokes "reboot".  "reboot" always fails, either locking up the system or
scrambling my CMOS setup (or both).  It has worked fine, though, on all AMI
BIOS machines I've tried, so I think the reboot program simply doesn't work
on Phoenix.

I posted a month or so about this and got a bunch of "me too's" but no actual
answers.  If I get an answer, I'll post the solution.
