I'am trying to install SCO OpenServer 5.0 on a PC
(DELL Optiplex GXL 5133), using an IDE cd-rom.
The hard disk (Western Digital caviar 31600) and
the cd-rom (Nec Corp. CDR-273) are on the same (primary)
IDE controler (Master and Slave).
No problems with the boot sequence (loading BTLD ATAPI
driver with the defbootstr ahslink=ATAPI)
I 'Identify the installation media device' as
'SCSI CD-ROM' with these parameters :
host adaptater type : wd
host adaptater number : 0
SCSI-ID : 1
SCSI-LUN : 0
SCSI bus number : 0
I have the first graphics screens, but the PC stop
when I have the (graphic) message :
'testing media installation device...'
did I do something wrong ?
I don't know if the problem is the ATAPI driver or
the hard disk driver...
I see something strange (?) in the system hardware report
The %adaptater and %disk have the same address...
(The %adaptater parameters seems to be OK when I read
the 'Release note')
I have already check the hard disk jumpers and the cd-rom
Should I add something like this at the boot prompt (?) :
defbootstr ahslink=ATAPI hd=... Sdsk=...(0,0,0,0)
I searched some informations on the Western Digital WEB server :
they say that NOVELL NetWare and UNIX do not work with the
translating BIOS feature (LBA : Logical Block Addressing (?))
Is it true for SCO unix ?
Should I disable this in the CMOS setup ?
Did someone have the same problem ?
Thanks in advance,
PS: I hope there is no mistake in this text, I'am French...!
