Multiple Boot using BIOS


Hi all,

I'm still a basic NOOB when it come to Suse 9.1 trying to migrate over, so bear with me.

I have a Asus SK8V using the on-board IDE (Primary 80GB Maxtor, Secondary DVD, DVD-RW) VIA SATA (2-WD 74 GB Raptor RAID 0 XP Pro) and the Promise SATA (2-WD 74 GB Raptor Suse 9.1 Pro using Suse's RAID 0). I installed XP Pro with out the Promise drives connected, no problem, I installed Suse 9.1 Pro without the XP drives connected, no problem. Asus board will allow to choose your boot device on post. Plug everything in and it will boot to XP no errors, the problems is when i Boot to Suse 9.1 Pro I'm getting errors when it is trying to read the RAID 0 partition on XP. The system works fine, runs great just would like to get rid of the screen scrolling about the can't read the RAID partition. Is there any way to tell Suse not to look at the VIA SATA or the drives or the RAID partition?

I Hope someone can help, I have been combing all over the forums, wondering if I'm the only person trying this?

Thanks for your guys time and brain power

To stop SuSE from looking at the RAID partitions, you need to make it believe they're not there.

The easiest way to do this is probably to edit the /etc/inittab file and comment out the lines about your RAID controller by putting a '#' sign infront of them. I don't know if that will stop all the messages, but it will stop it from trying to mount the filesystem.

If it does recognise the RAID controller, you do need to have the drivers for it loaded. Otherwise, the partition numbers will change and you may find that your root partition moves from /dev/hdg1 to /dev/hde1, and so your system won't boot anymore. That problem can be fixed (by logging in with a rescue system and manually changing the drive mappings) but it's probably not worth it.

Hope this is not too long of a post, startup log if that helps but it doesn't have all the errors on hard disk it's many pages long but it is the same errors, I am not able to find anything around the net for this.

There seems to be a problem with your hda disk. It could just be a driver problem (incorrectly set-up RAID controller?) but these are almost exactly the same messages you expect to get when a hard disk is dying.

hda is almost always the on-board IDE channel (and is always a master device); this is almost certainly the Maxtor disk.

With the first error line being about dma_intr, it may just be that the drive controller, BIOS and Linux have conspired to choose a configuration that doesn't work with DMA. Try passing this option to your boot-loader:
Code:
hda=nodma
If that doesn't work, you can ignore it completely with:
Code:
hda=none
Also, do you know if your hard disk has 290422852 logical block addresses? (Your BIOS should tell you how many it has, or it may even be printed on the disk) If not, it's trying to read past the end of the disk, which obviously won't work!

Here is the list of drives and partitions.

If there is really no way to fix it then I will live, the machine runs with no physical problems.

I can't get your numbers to add up. What kind of RAID controller are you using on the motherboard? Are you sure you haven't just got a 138Gb partition on an 80Gb disk (that would cause the errors you are seeing, and worse problems down the line when the disk gets more full).

I'm having the exact same problem with a VIA SATA Raid setup. I looked all over the net, and when I realized it was going to be impossible to setup Suse 9.1 on the SATA RAID, I abondoned that idea and installed a old 60GB IDE drive (non-raid, non-serial). Installed Linux on that, and now I have the option at POST to choose to boot the SATA RAID-0 (WinXP) or the 60GB IDE (SUSE 9.1). However, Suse always complains when it sees the SATA RAID and I really don't even want Suse 9.1 touching that SATA RAID, and it annoys me that it's probing it so much. It takes Suse like 3-5 minutes extra to boot because of this annoyance. I posted this question in the Hardware section of this board, and was told to comment out the /HDA entry in the /etc/fstab, which I did with a "#" on the line that HDA appeared. It didn't work, it still probes the shit out of the SATA RAID. Why is Linux so retarded in this regard, isn't there an easy way to "disable" a device or "hide" it from the OS? Someone please help us.... I see this being a bigger issue as time goes on and more and more switch from XP to Linux with SATA setups....... BTW, this is the 5th system I've installed Linux on from Redhat 6 to Suse 9.1 and each one had a major issue with a piece of hardware. When I did my first install about 5 years ago, the display never worked correctly and I always had to manually tell it the timing with I think something called xconfig or something, and it was basically just a shell, nothing nearly as complete as today's SUSE 9.1 (which I'm running the 64 bit version). But EVERY SINGLE TIME a Linux install has ISSUES with hardware (ALWAYS!). Last time it was a WLAN card that the system didn't see. I think this will be the biggest issue to having Linux adopted..... driver support.

As a server, Linux is flawless and solid. I've run several machines on Apache and it's great, never had a problem with it. Windows NT4 to Server 2003 have had a number of issues with IIS and it basically sucks. Microsoft should stick to the desktop market, because they actually do that well with OS and office productivity and Linux (for now) should stick with the server market. Just my two cents. Thanks for listening to this ramble.

I tried that lastnight hda=none and it worked! Yeah! But how do I make it a "perm" boot command instead of manually having to enter it each time? Also, Suse 9.1 did load extremely quick after that little fix, but when I look at the "My Computer" icon, only the CD-ROM is showing, the HD icon is gone, but if I type in / I can get to the root, I think that little hda=none did something to the way KDE makes a icon for the normal IDE drive that I am using. Apart from that, it actually works quite well. 64-bit Linux is really really really responsive. Thanks again!!

open up /boot/grub/menu.lst in a text editor, then add it after the kernel line.
As for the KDE problem, try right click on the My Computer icon, and set the URL to somewhere else, like "devices:/" instead of "drives:/" or wherever you want.

If you use LILO instead of GRUB modify /etc/lilo.conf, add hda=none to the "append" line and run /sbin/lilo.
