Default SATA drive problems in LENNY...

Hi there,

While upgrading to service pack 3 windoze died - so I finally got my wife
to work on my debian machine. Now I need to install debian on her amd64
compaq, and unlike 15 month ago this time I cannot give up. The SATA
drives are simply not recognized during installation. Threw in an old 8.6G
ide hard drive that I had salvaged, and installed the system. Below is my
dmesg output: the trail of the errors is clear, but even after a lot of
googling I still have no idea as to what the root cause might be. Could
not make sense of anything I found on the web. The chip is an ATI IXP 400.
The BIOS does not seem to allow me to mess with any drive settings...

:-(

Thanks for your help!

Best, Kai

P.S. Due to the high traffic I am not on the list. Please cc me in your
reply. - Will deal with the 8139too issue after I got the disk...

Hi there,

While upgrading to service pack 3 windoze died - so I finally got my wife
to work on my debian machine. Now I need to install debian on her amd64
compaq, and unlike 15 month ago this time I cannot give up. The SATA
drives are simply not recognized during installation. Threw in an old 8.6G
ide hard drive that I had salvaged, and installed the system. Below is my
dmesg output: the trail of the errors is clear, but even after a lot of
googling I still have no idea as to what the root cause might be. Could
not make sense of anything I found on the web. The chip is an ATI IXP 400.
The BIOS does not seem to allow me to mess with any drive settings...


:-(

Thanks for your help!

P.S. Due to the high traffic I am not on the list. Please cc me in your

I have a silicon image 3112a 2 port controller. Since kernel 2.6.24 if
I have a drive in both ports I get funny errors like that too. Have
you tried using only one drive? Looks like you have two..

Hi there,

While upgrading to service pack 3 windoze died - so I finally got my
wife to work on my debian machine. Now I need to install debian on her
amd64 compaq, and unlike 15 month ago this time I cannot give up. The
SATA drives are simply not recognized during installation. Threw in an
old 8.6G ide hard drive that I had salvaged, and installed the system.
Below is my dmesg output: the trail of the errors is clear, but even
after a lot of googling I still have no idea as to what the root cause
might be. Could not make sense of anything I found on the web. The
chip is an ATI IXP 400. The BIOS does not seem to allow me to mess
with any drive settings...


:-(

Thanks for your help!
Best, Kai
P.S. Due to the high traffic I am not on the list. Please cc me in
your reply. - Will deal with the 8139too issue after I got the
disk...

I have a silicon image 3112a 2 port controller. Since kernel 2.6.24 if
I have a drive in both ports I get funny errors like that too. Have
you tried using only one drive? Looks like you have two..


Sam



Silicon Image controllers require a driver, so the obvious question is,
are the drivers in the kernel or a module? [Thinking aloud:] It seems
to be there, from the above, but SATA requires SCSI generic support and
all that. And, lo, you did cat /proc/scsi/scsi.


Something's flaky.

Have you considered a bad hard disk? It is SATA, but the system reduces
the DMA to DMA66. Tried a new cable? Power supply adequate?


How recent is the driver? Would a more recent one help?

[Shot in the dark:] How is your APIC/LAPIC quality? Quite a few older
machines have buggy BIOSes, and need a boot parameter such as noapic.

Or the SATA cable was jiggled loose?

Default SATA drive problems in LENNY...

Thanks, Ron! The solution was noapic as a kernel parameter though. Mark
Allums' shot in the dark held the key. Then I tried to transfer my system
from the old 8.6G ide disk to the new 500G sata disk, following
instructions you seem to have gotten on another occasion: dd and
resize2fs. dd worked, resize2fs failed miserably... So right now I am
re-installing the system happily on the 500G sata disk.

Hint for the debian installation disk managers: Took me some time to
figure out how to add a boot parameter to the installation kernel on the
netinstall CD. Should be easy to include a menu item that gives the
standard for the minimum information that has to be entered at the boot
prompt:
boot: /install.amd/vmlinuz initrd=/install.amd/initrd.gz
and leaves a blinking cursor right there to add your own boot option (e.g.
noapic...) or press return for normal installation boot (as you would get
with the first menu item, install). Just a thought. Would have made my
life much easier and saved me one doomed boot to see what install is
booting... Not evident that a newbie would have figured this out as a way
to get at the information.

Thanks again, all you guys! Hope this makes it into the thread for future
reference...

Best, a happy Kai
