SuSE 7.3 LILO on floppy instead of MBR
Hi everybody. Just installed SuSE 7.3 on a Dell Latitude c610. The Laptop already had Win XP loaded.
When I installed, SuSE detected XP and advised that I install LILO to a floppy. It boots from floppy fine. It also boots to XP without the floppy just fine.
I want LILO on the MBR, not on a floppy. How do I do this? :scratch:
Thanks and Merry Chistmas everybody...
You should be able to change that by editing the /etc/lilo.conf
In particular, yours seems to be set to boot=/dev/fd0, you should be able to change that to boot=/dev/hda
Then you run the command:/sbin/lilo -L
Also, there is probably a boot loader configuration tool in YAST if you are not comfy editing these files directly.
Here is an example of the /etc/lilo.conf which may look abit different on your system.
Thanks homey... I did try editing using vi. I then used YaST2. This is the error I got:
Warning: device 0x0306 exceeds 1024 cylinder limit.
Use of the 'lba32' option may help on newer (EDD BIOS) systems.
Fatal: geo_comp_addr: Cylinder number is too big (1397 > 1023)
Lilo config says:
linux /boot/vmlinuz Linux/i386 Kernel, Setup Version 0x202, bz Image
