Thumbs down What's DMA_TIMER_EXPIREY

The system is not at all Booting if I use the RedHat Linux cds(7,8,9).
The error message is ,during partition checking (booting) it gives
DMA_TIMER_EXPIREY (0X61) and stops there.

This is a hardware error on either your hard drive or your hard drive controller chipset. It means that the kernel issued a command to the hardware and nothing happened within a reasonable time period.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
