install failes during boot
hallo linux specialists,
so far I'm not a specialist myself, but I just want to install the system, and
it does not startup.
It is a digital DECpc 466d2 MTE (EISA) with 16MB RAM,
Adaptec 2740 SCSI controller, 2GB Quantum Fireball Tempest (SCSI), Toshiba
SCSI-CDROM, Wangtek SCSI Tape drive,
Ethernet adapter (Intel EtherExpress) and
ISDN adapter (Teles S0-16.3 NO Plug&Play)
An IDE harddisk and it's controller are disabled in the BIOS, the SCSI harddisk
is partitioned with 2 FAT and 2 NTFS partitiones - I want to remove them all
during installation after one successful linux startup to run linux only on this
The boot prompt appears all right, then loading linux hangs up with the
following last lines at screen:
aic7xxx: Resetting the SCSI bus...done.
qlogicisp : PCI bios not present
eata_dma: No BIOS32 extensions present. This driver release still depends on it.
o Skipping scan for PCI HBAs.
aic7xxx: (aic7xxx_isr) Encountered spurious interrupt.
scsi0: BRKADRINT error (0x1):
Illegal Host Access
Kernel panic: scsi0: BRKADRINT, error 0x1, seqaddr 0x0.
That's it. Only valid actions then are Power Off or RESET. No change loading
Not to forget:
A Happy New Year to all who have read till here.
Gesine and Stephan
