[opensuse] Re:Boot failure
Hi All
I need some help with Suse10.3. Recently I purchased some pc's, one with an
ASUS P5L-MX and the other with a FOXCONN 945G7AD motherboard installed. I
attempted to install Suse and it installed fine, until the re-boot stage
when it put a message to screen saying booting from local disk and stopped.

The hard disks where SATA in both, so in one machine I replaced them with an
adeptec scsi controller and tried again with the same result.

Windows xp loads fine and boots no problem. The things these two boards have
in common is the Intel 945G northbridge and ICH7 Southbridge. Both boards
load ata_piix as the driver module. I suspect this is where the problem lies
but am no expert. I have been on this for day's now and still no nearer
finding a solution, so any help would be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance
