hda: attached ide-disk driver & lost interrupt


Hello - I've just moved my hda and hdb over to a new mobo (Asrock k7s8x) and ddr and case and everything. The hardware config is physically the same but when I boot I get -
hda:attached ide-disk driver
[long pause]
hda:lost interrupt
So ... I booted Knoppix and this failed until I booted "failsafe" - I'm using Knoppix right now and both hda and hdb are there.
I'm using Debian Testing from Knoppix on hda2.

You propably switched to ACPI capable motherboard or your new mobo has some problems with devices and ACPI.

If you are using GRUB boot loader you could try adding pci=noacpi at the end of menuitem where vmlinuz or bzlinuz image is loaded.

This isn't a perfect solution but should make sure if things really are ACPI related.


I propably got those image-names wrong because I am now running windows and are too lazy to check.

# Boot up Linux by default.
#
default=Linux

I am not sure but either you add new append= line like
append="pci=noacpi"

or you add it to one already existing append line like
appen="hdc=ide-scsi pci=noacpi"

hmmmm. it seems that my mobo *is* acpi enabled but append= "pci=noacpi" is failing me horribly. Google suggests that markelo is correct but it ain't working for me. What is different about a "failsafe" boot of Knoppix? - that's what I'm using now and it's fine but the standard Knoppix boot failed.

okay --- I'm a little further down the trail now. If I enter noapic at boot, things seem to move a little further but, I suddenly get

Freeing unused kernel memory : 136k freed
nomce: nomce: No such file or directory
Kernel panic: Attemtped to kill init!

What's going on??? What is nomce?

A worried man.

well well well
I deleted all of my partiitions on hda and and then put them back (I did this because it felt as though I was being productive!!) and then reintalled Knoppix. At boot I added "Linux noapic acpi=off nodma nomce" and whoa! it booted. I narrowed down the boot parameters to "noapic" and all is well again in my world.
Wierd.
But solved!
