I guess lilo couldn't install either, as it (usually) will overwrite whatever's previously there. Were there any errors/warnings when doing the lilo install? I'm assuming the rest of your steps to install DSL is fine though, except for this sata problem.
|I tried lilo on one occasion as I retried the load, but the subsequent boot said loading grub then error 15. Seems pointless to dilute the problem with that one at the mo.|
The location of the initrd depends on your setup, but it should be something like /cdrom/boot/isolinux/minirt24.gz on a livecd. Since you indicated an liveusb frugal, perhaps it is in another location. If this is the case, try running `find /cdrom | grep minirt `. If that still doesn't find it, look in /mnt/sdXx (after mounting the device).
Mounting the initrd to /mnt/m
|Code Sample |
cp /cdrom/boot/isolinux/minirt24.gz /tmp
sudo mount -o loop minirt24 /mnt/m
Copy your modules to somewhere in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/ (maybe scsi/)
Update the modules stuff: with `sudo depmod`
