Question Slackware installer stuck on "Adaptec aacraid driver 1.1-5[26400]-ms" after boot


I wanna be a Slacker, so I decided to burn a DVD with the Slackware DVD iso.

Unfortunately, I'm stuck on this adaptec message, and it gets stuck on it.

Anyway, here's what I did so far:

Loaded SlackDVD in CD tray
Reboot system
"Welcome to Slackware"
boot: <hit enter>
le waiting for the installer to commence.
le stuck on "Adaptec aacraid driver 1.1-5[26400]-ms" for half an hour
me: *FFFUUUUUUUUUU-*

I ran for help on #SLACKWARE IRC on freenode, and they told me to disable any adaptec stuff I might have enabled in my BIOS, and when I looked through it, I couldn't find crap. I ran for help again, and they told me to use the following when I get to the boot menu: huge.s aacraid=

Same results, Inconclusive.

So does anyone here have any ideas as to why I can't become a Slacker?

Apparently the kernel used in the Slackware install disc has some problems with your hardware.

Is this with the latest Slackware release? Have you run other Linux operating systems on this hardware successfully? If so, which ones? For that matter, does your machine actually have an Adaptec RAID controller in the first place?

I see that you're currently running Fedora. Have you ensured that your install DVD is okay, is this one that you burned yourself? Does the Slackware DVD boot successfully on another PC?

I have run other operating systems successfully.
-Debian
-Ubuntu
-Fedora
-Knoppix

I am trying to install Slack 1337

As for the motherboard I don't know, but I do know my processor, architecture, RAM, and so forth.

As far as I know, I dont have any adaptec controllers

I believe the problem is that one of the devices on the motherboard that you have is responding in a bad way to the aacraid driver. If you still have one of the other linux distros on that machine, could you run lspci and give us the output?

We need to know what ide/sata/scsi disk controller your system is using (by getting an lspci). Even if it is the aacraid hanging (which I doubt, I actually think it's the immediate next driver, aic94xx, that I see when testing usbboot.img), the only way I know to get around this problem is to build a custom kernel with the driver for your controller excluding the unneeded drivers, and then create a custom book disk.

It may be helpful to get an lsmod/dmesg and kernel version from the distros you have installed that work.

So a custom kernel or boot disk is in order, to remove aacraid and aic94xx. I don't see that you have any need for these, and that's about where you are hanging. Is there an easy way to do this?
