Large Disks


On Velox (115.39) lilo fails because the disk is too big. Use lilo -L (or add lba32 to /etc/lilo.conf), then:



  # lilo -L
  Added 2.2.18pre21 *
  # dd if=/dev/sda of=/root/bootsect.lnx bs=512 count=1
  # mcopy /root/bootsect.lnx a:
  # lilo -u /dev/sda
  
  # reboot (into NT)

Then as above in Section 12.5 to update the MS/Windows/NT boot loader.

Remember: Be sure to run the lilo command after you update /etc/lilo.conf or the changes will not be in effect.
