    which distro are you using?
    add 'ide=nodma' in kernel line and boot up. check logs again. if it works add the same in menu.lst or grub.conf file.

    Hi casper,

    Sorry for late reply.
    I am using FC4 with the kernel version 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.

    Please tell me in which file I need to add the entry ide=nodma.

    Thanks Inadvance,
    Mummaneni.

    in GRUB screen, select Fedora title and press 'e'. add 'ide=nodma' at the end of 'kernel' line and press 'b' to boot up.
