I was wondering if any subscibers to this list recognise the
following problem.

I just purchased 2 identical machines and I am looking to install 4.7
from CD.

Both machines exhibit exactly the same behavior, so I'm pretty sure
it is not defective hardware.

The machine boots from CD successfully and when I skip kernel config
it runs through apparently recognising my variious devices until it
to the CDROM.

It then reports

acd0 MODE_SENSE_BIG command timeout - resetting
ata1: resetting .. done
( The message repeats itself many times.)

I then start standard install, specify hard disk partitions and ask to
install from CDROM

It then formats the hard disk ok, but reports

acd0: TEST_UNIT_READY command timeout - resetting
ata1: resetting devices .. done
( The message repeats itself many times.)

finally it gives up and gives error message

Error mounting /dev/acd0c on dist Input/Output Error(5)

Any ideas why it should boot from CD, but not then recognise it ?

It is a generic High Speed CDROM DRIVE, E-IDE/ATAPI interface
52x speed.

I've now launched an ftp-install, which is progressing slowly but
I'd much prefer to start again from CD

Thanks in advance
