I'm installing OpenServer 5.0.0 on approx 1 gb of a EIDE 4.2 gb hard-drive.
The remaining containing windows.
I'm using the following oss451b btld and the boot-string :
biosgeom restart ahslink=wd disable=dptr
Everything works fine, including a thorough, destructive scan of unix
partition, however, having created the filesystem table, the system goes
off to make the filesytem, the hard-drive light goes on, and after a delay
of a minute or so, I'm presented with the following :
warning : wd0 : Timeout on fixed disk dev 1/42
The continues to occur until eventually i'm provided with a reboot message.
I've hunted for a solution everywhere, but no luck so far, I believe the
disk is LBA enabled though, I'm not sure if that's relevant.
Thanks in advance
