Today we’ve made an installation of Ubuntu 6.06 LTS to
SATA hard drive. And it have failed in angriness, so strange.
Live CD tried to mount this HD eventually long and finally mounted it, seems, but in the end, while running the kernel, it started spitting out with
buffer I/O Read Error and so on.
The decision was found when I’ve combined the advices from two forums:
BIOS, the way of working with
SATA I’ve set to
Enhanced (it is something messed with
PATA, and try to play with channels if something will go wrong; at the worst, if you have two
SATA-harddrives, disable one for a try)
And then in the boot screen of
Live CD I’ve pressed
Escape button (that switches to text mode) and typed
boot: live pci ide=nodma ide=reverse
(without taking into account the fact that I’ve tried a lot of different commands)
Now Ubuntu works as a cute one. Except…
