I just reinstalled Linux (Slackware 9.0) on my PC and now i get the L 99 99... error when i try to choose to boot.
My system is set up like this:
on CMD-649U IDE Card:
/dev/hda (IOMEGA ZIP100)
on CMD-649U RAID CARD (IDE MODE):
/dev/hde (LiteOn 52x CDRW)
/dev/hdg (IBM 80GB HDD)
on onboard ATA controller:
/dev/hdi (IBM 120GB)
/dev/hdk (Pioneer DVR105 DVD-RW)
/dev/hdl (Liteon 24x CDRW)
Linux is installed on the 80GB HDD (/dev/hdg) on the second partition (/dev/hdg2), theres a ntfs partition (/dev/hdg1) and linux swap (/dev/hdg3)
Windows 2000 is installed on the 120GB HDD (/dev/hdi) and is the Primary master (windows sees this before the addin cards, linux works the other way it seems)
As a bootloader i use boot.ini to choose between and a bootsect.lnx image from my root partition where lilo is installed.
(dd if=/dev/hdg2 of=/bootsect.lnx bs=512 count=1 used to create the file)
I have my lilo information as:
boot = /dev/hdg2
and the linux root /dev/hdg2 so i think this is correct
No matter what i try it will not go past the L 99 99 error..
Any help would be very very welcome right now, as i just want to format every drive and start again..
