Mandrake 10.1 Install - Hda Lost Interrupt
I've searched and found a couple of threads about this. My motherboard is an Asrock K7S8X, ive just searched on google an it seems im not the only person with linux install problems with this motherboard.
I've had redhat and mandrake 9.1 on my old laptop, but with no modem support for my modem. I read the new release of mandrake has native support now, so i'm really interested in installing it. (I spent ages an ages downloading the 10.1 DVD)
But yeah... It wont even install. I tried scribbling down some messages it gives me when i attempt.. (dual boot XP - Ext3 partition pre-made with partition magic) so yeah.. i try and install an it gives me these messages.. (in fragments lol - not the whole log, just notes - sorry)
Then gives me a lot of
RAMDISK Driver initialized
SIS5513 not 100% native mode
SIS 962/963 MutIOL UDMA133 Controller
Ide0: BM-DMA at 0xff00-0xff07 Bios Settings
hda: DMA. hdb: DMA
hda: lost interrupt
hdb: lost interrupt messages
(I have 2 hard drives). Im guessing from what I've read I'll need a new motherboard? I'm not interested enough to fork out money for a new un just yet, im not convinced ill use linux enough to justify it. So if theres any way you could suggest that might fix it I'd like to give it a try (before I re-format that partition back to NTFS and give up on it)
Any help appreciated! thanks...
