Re: Can't boot to RAID from SRM..
actually I have install RedHat 7.0 on my AlphaServer 1000 with Mylex
RAID controller. NONE of the distribution can install successfully today.
I have already tried Mandrake, Suse, Debian. So, RH7 is the only one I can
successfully install on that box. However, the box didn't boot after the
installation. I try "boot dra0" from SRM prompt but it said "block 0 of
dra.0.0.13.0 is not a valid boot block".
Since the RH7.0 CD can find the RAID drive ( again, all other
distribution like mandrake, suse, debian can't even see the RAID drive!!!),
I am thinking about create a boot disk to boot the system. However, I
don't know how to create that image from the installation CD, can anyone

You installed this in a parisc box? Which one?
Or did you land on the wrong mailing list? :^)

More output would be needed in general but in this case I know
you are hosed. There is no IODC for Mylex - ergo can't boot from it.
I *think* you can have your root file system on it and boot from
a built-in SCSI/LAN device. RAID support may need to be built-into
the kernel (ie not a module since it can't be loaded until root fs
is present). Read PALO docs for help on finding a boot disk and
