Slackware boot on CCISS Dev

Filed under: Linux — Nasser Heidari @ 13:34

Today , after Installing Slackware 13 on HP DL360 , i found out that lilo can not write the MBR and eventually the OS could not be loaded !
After a bit Googling, i solved my problem , here is the solution :

After Slackware installation finished , before rebooting to OS follow the below commands:

# mkdir /mnt/root # mount /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 /mnt/root (c0d0p1 is my / Partition) # mount -o bind /dev /mnt/root/dev # mount -t proc none /mnt/root/proc # chroot /mnt/root

After chrooting edit your lilo configuration file and change boot device:

boot = /dev/cciss/c0d0p4

and then :

# lilo -M /dev/cciss/c0d0 mbr # lilo

and then reboot to your new OS .
