As a SCO newbie, I am having considerable problems trying to get SCO loaded
onto my machine.
The configuration is as follows:
Pentium Pro 200
amibios version 1.00.05.CS1
2x Quantum Fireball 3200 eide Drives
1x 8-speed atapi eide cd-rom drive
The eide controller is imbedded on the motherboard.
The problem I am having, is trying to get SCO to recognise the fact that I
have a large drive.
I have played around with all of the cmos/bios settings for the hard
drives. It allows settings for CHS, LBA Extended CHS and Auto-Detect modes
on the disk. Only standard CHS seems to work. On making this selection SCO
thinks it has a drive with 1024 16 63 (500mb) settings, This even though
the manual configuration for the drive is 6232 16 63 (3gb)
I proceeded with the installation on this basis. Once complete, the system
now hangs when I try and boot from the hard disk. Somethimes it finally
gets going after about a 1 1/2 minute pause. When I run divvy of df -v,
sure enough it only reportts the 500mb. I would dearly love to be able to
use the balance of the drive.
I suspect that the problems stem from my incorrect setup of the drives in
the first place. I eventually wish to set the machine up with a small (say
300mb) dos partition on the front of the disk prior to the sco partition.
Help and assistance will be greatly appreciated and faithfully applied.
