Cannot detect hard disk (hda)
Version: 2.2 rev 0
Sorry. I think I may have sent two other emails with no contents. Still
getting to grips with this hotmail. Anyway, I tried installing
version 2.2 rev 0 "potato"
on my computer(Architechture i386), which has a Asus A7V motherboard, IBM
40GV hard drive connected to the Primary ATA100 channel, Teac CD540E 40x
CDROM drive connected to the Secondary IDE channel, 128 MB RAM PC133,
network card: RJ45 10 Mbps Ethernet card and NO SCSI adapters.
After copying the binary files to the CDROM (3 altogether for
binary_i386_1_nonus.iso, binary_i386_2.iso and binary_i38r_3.iso) I booted
the computer from the CDROM. It starts fine but later reports :
hda: no response (status=0xa1), resetting drive
and finally it reaches the welcome menu. I can configure the keyboard but
cannot do anything else since it has not detected my hard disk. How can I
make it detect my hard disk?
Thanks for your help and time.
