hde not responding


Ok, I just installed Mandrake 10, and I get the message during boot that hde is not responding. What does this usually correspond to?

I don't have a device that I would recognize it as. Meaning, my CD-ROM, HD, and floppy are all booting and registering fine..

After I know where it is. How do I disable it?

It greatly slows down the boot process.

Thanks
David

Possibly an entry in etc/fstab for /dev/hde causing your computer to attempt
mounting a nonexistent/unformatted partition?

ARRGGG!!!

I did..

Primary Master is my real hard driver

Primary Slave is the CD-ROM

Nothing extra..

Wan't happening under Windoze.. So I'm thinking it must be in the linux config.

Other thoughts?

OK. My curiosity is now full-bore. Redirect the output of dmesg to a file --
like "dmesg > tmpmesg". Search for hde. If it pops up, give me a window
of, say, 5 lines before and 5 lines after. We'll see if that illuminates the
problem.

Are you using LILO or Grub? If LILO, are there any append lines referencing
hde?

I'm off on a fishing trip. My father (who is 89) is dragging me along. I'm
getting too old for his antics.

Does your motherboard have 3 IDE controllers or do you also have a PCI IDE controller installed?

What is the make and model of your motherboard?

Ok, I'll start with micaelk's question first. I'm on a ASUS A7n8X-deluxe board. No PCI IDE controller.

Here's the output of demsg. I"m running grub, and can't find any references to hde in the menu.lst file.

NFORCE2: 0000:00:09.0 (rev a2) UDMA133 controller
ide0: BM-DMA at 0xf000-0xf007, BIOS settings: hdaMA, hdbMA
ide1: BM-DMA at 0xf008-0xf00f, BIOS settings: hdcMA, hddMA
hda: SAMSUNG SP1203N, ATA DISK drive
Using anticipatory io scheduler
ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14
hdc: Hewlett-Packard CD-Writer Plus 9100, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15
SiI3112 Serial ATA: IDE controller at PCI slot 0000:01:0b.0
SiI3112 Serial ATA: chipset revision 2
SiI3112 Serial ATA: 100% native mode on irq 11
ide2: MMIO-DMA , BIOS settings: hdeio, hdfio
ide3: MMIO-DMA , BIOS settings: hdgio, hdhio
hde: no response (status = 0xfe)
hdg: no response (status = 0xfe)



Hmmmmm

Your motherboard has a SATA 2 port RAID controller in addition to the standard 2 port ultra DMA IDE controller. Thats what the ide2: and ide3: is referencing in the output of dmesg. It looks like the master on both ports (hde, hdg) is configured for something other then auto. There should be a section in the motherboard manual for configuring the BIOS settings.

Hmmm..

Now during boot up Satar Raid does come up and try and detect drives. Of course it never finds any and goes on it's way.

I've searched throught manual before (and now) trying to find a way to disable it.

Either through BIOS or Jumper, but haven't been able to..

Anyone ever find this setting on one of these MB's??


(Thanks for pushing me in the right direction!)
