    Mandrake 10.1 "no cdrom device found" please help.

    I ve mandrake 10.1 cds .When i try to boot from the first or the second cdrom i ve the message that "no cdrom device found" which is really stupid because i am already booting from that cdrom ...
    any help would be really usefull.

    i ve one 52 x lg cdrom drive and again an lg dvd-cdwriter combo drive..
    tried both.. The result is the same.

    if you can definately boot from them with another CD then maybe you have faulty CDs ?

    I seem to remember 10.0CE having issues with lg roms... Have you checked out the MDK site to see if it's been solved?

    Did you have Serial ATA controler ? I had problem with a new MB with SATA HDD and PATA (IDE) DVD. The CD/DVD is seen by BIOS (you can boot on it) but when the kernel is loaded, it doesn't see the IDE devices.
    You have to check in the BIOS to disable Legacy support (Put the serial ata controler in 'Enhanced mode'.
    This is a problem linked to kernel 2.6.8. 10.0 with 2.6.3 does not have this problem. There is a bug filled in Mdk QA site.

    Solution on CD1!

    Hi, create a boot floppy and select "/images/alternatives/cdrom.img-2.4.25-2mdkBOOT" from your CD1 mandrake distro, restart, boot from floppy and install mandrake , it is very simple :P
