plz if anyone can help me:
i'm trying to setup redhat 7.1 but the installer hangs after detecting the IDE controllers
i was able to boot the setup using
linux ide0=noprobe but the setup complains about not finding a file system to install on
anything i can do or shall i give up and continue with rh 7?
well i noticed that when i put the Harddisk and the cdrom on the 2nd IDE (ide1) leaving the first (ide0) empty the setup boots normally!!
but i didn't try the case when both are connected to the first ide
but i don't want that case
well Mr. DAM i did tried expert but with no use.
if anyone knows why this happens plz reply! and thank
what exactly do you mean by your last message.. does the setup starts when you connect the IDE and CDROM to the IDE1 or it does not start on any of the IDE slots??? though it might sound really naive... but are you sure that this aint because of some problem in one of the IDE slots, or the maser slave settings of the devices... because the only diff in the two conditions i feel is only the IDE slot.. if there was some problem with either HDD or maybe distro.. it shouldhave been in the IDE1 case too..
i tried having the hard disk and cd rom on the secondary drive but changing the pins did not work. i tried with the cd set to secondary slave too. i tried changing the bios also with c and d but .....
what did u do exactly ???? in deep water here ....
what i did exactly was:
connecting the HDD and the CD-ROM to the second IDE (IDE1)
setting the HDD as master
setting the CD-ROM as slave
setting the secondary master in the "standard CMOS setup" to the HDD
booting the setup and it did work
i don't think the problem is with the ide slot cause i'm writing all my posts from redhat 7 with KDE 2.2!
and i think the jumper settings are ok (from the CD-ROM manual and the illustration on the HDD)
i'll try connecting the both today to the ide0 and see what'll happen
