  1. Abit KV7 and Kernel 2.4.x doesn't recognise Maxtor IDE 160GB

    Hi,

    Abit KV7 KT400 mainboard with kernel 2.4.20 or 2.4.26 doesn't recognise
    a Maxtor 160GB 133MHz IDE (6G16P0). BIOS detects the HD but not the
    kernel! Linux claims: no disk present. BTW: 2.4.26 supports KT400 Chipset.

    Using a 2 years older mainboard GA 7DXE (Gigabyte) FSB 133MHz, max.
    Athlon 2200, all works fine!!! 2.4.20 as well as 2.4.26 recognises the
    entire Disk 160GB and e.g. installation of Suse 8.2 (kernel 2.4.20)
    works fine (even with a 140GB big root-Partition).

    any hints why Abit KV7 with KT400 has problems with kernel 2.4?

    Will Knoppix boot and find the hard drive?

    Which distro?

    When installing try this when asked to boot prompt

    linux all-generic-ide

    You may also have to add acpi=off

    I forgot to tell that with kernel 2.6.8. (suse 9.2) all works fine. But
    the 2.4.26 system is too complex to be ported to 2.6.8.

    I found a knoppix 3.2 with kernel 2.4.20. It seems to be a Suse
    problem. But I wonder why the vanilla 2.4.26 (that I tested) doesn't
    work either. Perhaps because I "recycled" the .config of Suse 2.4.20 by
    make oldconfig. So the kernel options of Suse template are the fault.

    Suse 8.2
