Re: FastTrak 100 Lite (PDC20265R)



Try these and see if there is any progress: 

1. Dont use ide=reverse
2. Dont use hdd=ide-scsi 
3. Fix PCI IRQ in motherboard BIOS 4. Use idebus=66 
4. Dont use ide2=.. and ide3=.. 
5. Make sure your existing linux has ataraid and pdcraid modules available
6. Make sure IRQ for hde and hdg is not being used by any other devices

Good luck,

murty
