[parisc-linux] Installing - creating superblock locks up
Fri, 11 Jul 2003 15:01:16 -0500
I am trying to install the latest net install ISO's.
My system is labeled Apollo Series 700 but the info command gives the following
Machine model 9000/730
Hardware version 8224
Software Version 1153
On bootup I see it has
PDC rom 2.0
IODC rom 2.0
The SCSI controller is labeled SCSI Single ended.
Looking at the machine I can see it contains a A1659-66001 video (frame buffer). I am assuming this is not stock as the documentation on HP's web site states nothing about it.
My machine locks up (no heartbeat) when creating superblocks for formatting the hard drives. I have tries this on many different drives and receive the same results.
I have read the FAQ and googled the archives to death. If anyone can point me the right direction, It would be a great help. I have 5 of these machines.
