When i started to boot my linux, during partition check it shows something like " DMA timeout retry DMA access error=0x61". After that sometimes it boots sucessfully at the end and sometime it dont. Also it take a lot of time to boot.there is no problem with my harddisk partitions.

Gaurav, this is not the forum where you ask your Linux related questions.

This thread has been reported and so it would be moved to some appropriate forum. So, you don't have to create an new thread in some other forum.

Are you trying to turn on dma or the ide transfer mode using hdparm during boot? Sometimes that will give you these errors it's really not needed anymore since "use dma by default" is usually compilled into the kernel now.
