PC164 + IDE Hard Drive + Redhat 7.2...How do I boot?

Post by Charles Erw » Fri, 04 Jul 2003 00:37:44

I can install linux by cdrom fine by booting a floppy and
continuing...however there is no way to boot the hard drive once it's
installed.  SRM Cannot see any hard drives and every milo I've used
cannot read them.  If ANYONE can help me I would appreciate it.  Here
is some info about my setup:

Enorex 433mhz alpha using pc164 board
maxtor 40gb ide hard drive and 52x ide cdrom
Redhat 7.2 installed

Please help if you can.  Email welcomed as well.

1. Win2k and RedHat 7.2 on different hard-drive dual-boot with LILO??

Hi, I am trying to install Win2000 and RedHat Linux 7.2 on two different
hard drives so in the future when I don't want one of them I can just simply
format one hard drive. Both of my hard drives are IDE. At first I installed
Win2000 on Primary master(hda), then I install Linux on hdb. I choose to
install LILO on MBR and default boot is hdb(linux). But after install Linux,
I reboot the computer, only Win2000 come up, LILO didn't even show up. I am
wondering if LILO was installed to the MBR of hdb instead of hda. How can I
fix that so I can use LILO to dual-boot both operating system? Or if I need
to reinstall, what settings do I need to change to make it right? If LILO
couldn't pull a job like this, then which boot-manager can? BootMagic??
