10.1 won't boot my SCSI disk


Hello all

I eagerly installed Mandrake 10.1 after using 9.2 successfully for about a year. I got a successful boot, but it complained that it could not find my SCSI drive, which is a problem because that's where I have my swap and /usr partitions.

I printed out copies of my lilo.conf and fstab files and made sure that the current files that 10.1 is looking at are the same, but I still can't get the SCSI to boot up.

When I use Knoppix, Knoppix can see and access my SCSI drive just fine.

The geometry is as follows:

/dev/hda5 = / (root), boot drive is /dev/hda, this is an IDE disk.
/dev/sda5 = /usr
/dev/sda6 = /var
/dev/sda7 = swap

Anyone else run into this problem? What other files should I be exploring rather than lilo.conf and /etc/fstab? I would like to get this problem solved without having to reformat and move my swap partition to my IDE drive.

Thanks in advance.

What's the output of "lsmod" in knoppix?

From that, find out the driver for ur SCSI controller . Then check ur kernel modules tree (/mnt/sda#/lib/modules/<version>/blabla) and check if your Mandrake kernel has the driver or not. If so, then run "mkinitrd" so that ur init ramdisk also has the driver.
