i just updated and i can't boot!
i updated my hardware.
here is the story-
look at my specs below first of all from below.
i am running mandrake on a 74gb hardisk. It was attached to a maxtor ata133 pci card. I removed this card and i put it on the motherboard so i can use its bios powermanagement to shut down the hardisk because i leave it on all the time and the hardisk was spinning all the time. It seemed under linux, the pci card won't shut it down or something. (if you guys know of a way, let me know)
okay, i moved the ribon from the pci card to the onboard ide.
when i boot up, my pc identifies the disk as 74gb and also shuts it down when it is used for a long period of time. my mandrake os wont boot because it says something about ....darn i forgot so i figured it needs to be remounted or something. i can't even get a logon or the kernel wont load or anything. I can how ever boot up if i run it off the ata 133 pci card from maxtor.
is there a way to update it without reinstalling?
