Can't boot(find hard drives) after Fedora core install
Date: 25 Oct 2004 10:18:13 -0700
I had a pc with 2 hard drives that was running beautifully. I changed
the bios so it would boot from the cd rom, installed Linux(No
problems I could tell. It seemed to find both hard drives) no real
I rebooted post install and I get:
Detecting primary master ... none
Detecting secondary master ... Fujitsu*** ...
... found cd rom
Then it gives me a boot error, please insert system disk and press
I have tried the BIOS settings (Switching the boot sequence to every
possible combination, Auto-detecting hard drives, setting hard drives
to auto detect at startup) to no evail.
Anyone have any advice on where to turn next? I was not thinking it
would be bad hardware.
Thanks for any ideas.
