Can't boot from ide disk?
It's wonderful weather outside and I'm still having problems booting
Could anyone give me a hint why my PowerPC doesn't want to boot
correctly? The kernel hangs right after detecting the IDE disk.
This is the setup:
boot-device = ata/ata-disk@0:6
boot-file = /vmlinux root=/dev/hda6
Quik (1.1 under Linux) did initialize the partition map and installed
the first and second stage loader on that partition.
When I type 'boot' at the OF prompt the kernel gets booted, really.
But it stops after writing this message:
hda: ST52520A, ATA DISK drive
Normally (booting from another disk) next would be scsi disks &c.
Funny thing: It is possible to boot from one of the scsi disks without
boot-device = scsi/sd@4:2
boot-file = /vmlinux root=/dev/sdb2
