Well, it never fails. Post a request for help and
I figure it out right after that!
I'm not sure if the fault was mine (improperly
reading instructions?) or if there's a bug/typo in
the LILO installer on the Slackware 9.0 distro. I
noticed that the "boot=" line said:
When I took the 7 off, it booted fine. I could
have sworn I'd already tried that, but this time
it worked. Now to get the _second_ drive back in
and see if I'm back to my _original_ problem (not
being able to boot from hda at all).
Back to work,
Single HD, single boot...and LILO 01 01 error?
It seems as though everyone encountering the
problem I have has a complex set-up---and
therefore the answers I'm finding are tailored to
that complex set-up. After reading documentation
and googling for answers, I'm stumped. My system
is a single-boot system using Linux. Here's what I
know (the short version):
IDE1, master: 100GB Western Digital Hard Drive
IDE2, master: CD-RW
I did a clean sweep on this drive after numerous
other attempts to figure this problem out. My
partitions now appear as follows (only listing
hda1 bootable 128MB
hda5 /boot 128MB
hda7 / 11400MB
After a full Slackware 9.0 install and
configuration, I reboot and get:
L 01 01 01 01 01
until it says DISK BOOT FAILURE.....
I've put lba32 in my lilo.conf (and run
/sbin/lilo), but that didn't help. I'm at a loss
here. I don't even know what other information to
provide to help someone help me! What do I do now?
Frustrated on Day Three of this mess,
