Bug#57094: cannot boot from compaq SmartArray 221 with frozen boot-floppies 2.2.5
hi. i'm attempting to install frozen on a compaq proliant 1600 with a
SmartArray 221 controller providing a raid5 boot device. i'm using the
'compact' flavor of boot disks.
everything goes smoothly up until the first reboot. that is, i can see
the raid controller, partition the disk, and install/configure the base
system. i made the drive bootable and a boot floppy. when i attempt to
boot from the raid, i never receive a lilo prompt. when i attempt to boot
from the boot (or rescue) disk, i receive a VFS kernel panic about not
being able to mount the device at 00:00. during the boot process (from
the boot disk) the kernel *does* see the SmartArray and the partitions.
