Here's my system currently:
Mac II, 8ram, 160(ID 0),160(ID 6), 540(ID 1), sys 7.1.
I'm trying to install onto the 540 drive and am finding some problems:
When formatting with disk manager mac:
Mac error #0
-command completed w/o error
Drive sense key: 5
-Description illegal request
- Illegal parameter in command, descriptor block
supplied is data for command.
I get this error no matter what options I set, I've got the drive partitioned
with a 32meg swap(I know overkill but it wouldnt let me do 16) and
the rest is root&usr. I've tried setting the drives to different scsi id's
booting from a floppy(v6.0.8) moving the drives in the physical chain.
This is the error I get when running installer after mkfs'ing:
sd0 at ID 0 --> currently the only bsd drive I have, 160meg
sd1 at ID 1 --> the 540 I want to make bsd
Mounting partition 'A' as /
Failed mountfs(), error 22
Error mounting root
mount root: undefined error
the installer is kicked up to 1500k as per allen's suggestion.
These are the same messages I got the other nite when trying to do this on
a 100meg conner drive.
APS gives me numerous messages all very vague but with the same results
when running installer.
anyone have any thoughts or ideas?
