I just have find out what was wrong.
If the disk already was used in a windows machine it just don't work!
I have tried the same thing on a new disk (80Gb) and it works fine!
Then I have tried it again wit a old HD and .... nope. It don't boot!
It seems to bee the same problem as with the XboX
Now I have tried the same installation with a RaQ3 AND a new HD and it works!!
Even with a low level format it won't boot
Write the disk with full with zero's with Dd ... it won't boot afther the installation.
Very strange, but...
I think that Cobalt only want to work with a virgin ;-)
Thanks a lot!
That doesn't sound right. I know that the 40gb Maxtor drive I have
installed in my RaQ2 used to have Windows on it at one time. Probably
either Windows 2000 or Windows XP. I don't think it being in a Windows
machine is an issue, and I would start looking elsewhere for the problem
with that disk. (Cable select, perhaps?)
Currently I am using my RaQ2 for DHCP, bind, and bootp, and it has not
had any trouble at all.
