Can't overwrite MBR
I'm running Red Hat 8.0 on a system with a Promise fasttrack 100 raid controller with two hard disks in mirror mode. Previously win2k Server was installed on this system.
My problem is that I can't seem to get the Master Boot Record changed so I can boot without a boot disk, because every time I try this the machine will try to boot windows and hangs itself when it can't find the correct next stage boot loader.
I've tried overwriting the MBR using a grub boot disk but grub complains that it doesn't understand the partition type on my hard disks first partition (hd0,0) which is ext3. So next I tried using lilo. /sbin/lilo runs fine with my current lilo.conf, but when I reboot without boot floppy the machine will still try to load windows...
I'm kind of out of idea's what to try now...
