Kernel Hangs with dual SCSI Controller System
Posted on 2000-01-18
I'm installing Redhat 6.1 on a DELL Precision 410 w/two SCSI controllers: AIC7890 connected to 2 ultrawide drives, AIC7880 connected to a NEC CD-ROM. The installer hangs/panics when loading the AIX78XX module.
I've disabled SCAM plug n' play in the BIOS, disabled DOS address remapping in the BIOS, and finally tried passing in the aic7xxx=no_probe option in expert mode.
RedHat claims multiple SCSI controllers are not supported. Hmm. Dell says buy our $8,000 "server" (same machine + linux).
Any suggestions? Thanks.
