a new hard driveThis is a lost and found article. I wrote it some time ago, but for whatever reason, most likely stupidity, it was never published. During a recent rework of the site, I found the article and added it to the database.
14 August 1998I bought a new hard drive tonight. It should give me enough space to install and upgrade to 2.2.7. Unfortunately, I need a new I/O board as my current one doesn’t have enough IDE channels. Tune in tomorrow for the upgrade results.
The cards were not the same. If one was installed, it would prevent the system from finding the hard disk. I suspected an IRQ conflict. However, setting the suspect card to the same values of the other card did not change the situation. I was unable to get the two existing cards to work. So I swapped one of the cards for one from another machine. That allowed both machies to work.
The next thing to do is to get both drives running at the same time.
