My old computer's motherboard died...so I moved the hard/drive (with Fedora Core 1 installed in it) into a new computer that didn't have a HD in it. Now, I started the computer with a FC2 boot disk on it, and got this error:
Disk error 01, AX=42CC, 9 F
and the boot process stoped.
If I remove the bootable disk, the computer boots into the old FC1, recognizes the new hardware, and then it goes intoGnome. Nonetheless, it has some problems: it wont recognize my USB drives, nor my secondary HD which is used for Backups, etc.
I want to re-install linux, probably UBUNTU, but I cant boot from CD, and my computer does not have a floppy. I can get into GRUB, and I thought I can maybe boot the CD from there?
In my BIOS everything is set to AUTO, and during startup (before it loads GRUB, or attemtps to boot from CD) it recognizes everything. The CD-s are all fine and have been used to install linux in other machines.
The really weird thing is that I can boot into a Knoppix disk, but it wont start with a FC1, nor FC2 nor UBUNTU install disks.
Any help would be appreciated. Sorry for the complicated english
I forgot to mention. My BIOS is set-up to boot from CD. And within linux, I can access the CD and check the files. I've been checking the forums, and I found that I may add this to my grub.conf file
root (hd1) # my CD-ROM is seen as hdb by the kernel
and that may let me boot from CD. Is this correct? I have no idea if I set up the CD-Rom correctly and maybe the main problem is within the Box itself. But since I'm able to access the cd with mount /mnt/cdrom/ I assumed I set it up correctly.
It might be that the CD-rom is just too old. I'll try getting a new one and let y-all know if it works.
