Description zurk 1999-06-18 01:55:58 UTC
I have a compaq presario 2412ES system with phoenix bios
version 4.0 release 6. I cant get lilo to work with my 1 GB
IDE hard disk. It displays L 80 80 80 80.. on boot. The same
hard disk worked fine with LILO on an AMI BIOS. Attempting
to put a 4.3GB hard disk in place of the 1GB worked ok with
lilo booting up perfectly on the 2412ES. i guess its the
combination of a 1 gig hdd+phoenix bios that screwed things

According to the error message you are getting it is probably a bios
configuratio n problem with the drive you were using. Check
/usr/doc/lilo-0.21/doc/ for more detail on the error
message you are getting.
