Debian install failure kills hard drive?
Long time no post.
I just tried to install the latest stable Debian on my box. I partitioned with PM8 and went through the initial install of the kernel and modules. Debian went on my 30GB maxtor drive, slave on the primary IDE channel. I put LILO on my master. On reboot, I selected the debian install to boot and it failed. When I rebooted, BIOS can no longer detect the 30GB drive where I installed Debian and none of the diagnostics I have used can find it either. Is the drive toast? Or is there some other way to get it working? Thanks!
