The only time I ever saw that happen, was on an old Comcrap, err compaq,
deskpro. It was caused by the bios being software, rather then a hardware
chip. Apparently, I put LILO in the MBR (like I always do), but becuase the
bios was in the first sectors of the harddrive, LILO overwrote the bios
info. To fix this, I had to go to compaq website and d/l the bios utility
and install that, then reinstall Linux, and put LILO on floppy.

: Greetings from New York City!
: I recently removed a hard drive and now I can't get SuSE Linux 8.0 to
: boot from the Windows 2000 Boot Manager.
: I've changed hardware before and successfully copied the first 512 bytes
: of the Linux bootsector to the W2K partition, so I could add the
: correct entry to Windows' boot.ini file. But this time, all I get is
: lot of "01"s when I select the SuSE boot option from Windows 2000.
: If I boot from the SuSE DVD I can boot my existing Linux partition (from
: the installation routine, not the "Boot installed OS" from that boot
: My hardware is a DPT 3865 SCSI controller connected to a Seagate Cheetah
: disk that boots Windows 2000. SuSE Linux 8.0 is installed on an 18GB
: UDMA IDE drive connected to an on-motherboard ATA-100 controller, with
: the system BIOS set to boot SCSI first. The motherboard is an Asus
: A7V-133 with an Athlon 1200 CPU and 512MB RAM.
: The Linux drive is identified as /dev/hde and there are two partitions:
: hde1 is a 1GB swap; hde2 is a17GB ReiserFS native partition. LILO is
: installed on hde2.
: I had a second 8GB SCSI hard drive (one big extended partion formatted
: FAT32 for swapping files between W2K and Linux), but the drive was
: getting noisy and running way too hot, so I figured it was best to
: remove it before it died and took some data with it.
: After removing the dying drive Linux would no longer boot from the W2K
: boot loader, so I booted from the SuSE DVD, booted my installed Linux
: system, logged in as root, removed the mount point for the missing
: drive from fstab, ran /sbin/lilo, then did the "dd..." trick to get the
: first 512bytes from the Linux boot sector into a file (after running df
: to make sure I was hitting the right partition). I ftp'd the file to a
: temporary place, booted W2K, downloaded the boot sector file from the
: ftp site, modified boot.ini and rebooted.
: And that's when I get nothing but a screenful of "01 01 01 01..."
: FWIW, hde2 is marked as Active (Bootable) with fdisk.
: I looked around the SuSE KB web site, read the Docs on my Linux drive,
: but I can't see what I've done wrong--which means it's probabaly
: something simple and stupid!
: Any ideas?
