QDI mainboard Platinix 2D/533 - SCO

Hello, I have a computer with QDI Platinix 2D/533 motherboard with and Adaptec 29160 controller. I installed the SCO OPENSERVER 5.0.2 and works fine, but I have problems when I tried to install a Realtek 3129c network card. I installed fine the Realtek driver (version 5.0) for SCO UNIX and relink the kernel, but the problem appears when boot the next time. The boot proccess stops at G letter and appears the following error messages "no root disk controller". I tried with SCO OPENSERVER 5.0.6. and occurs the same, it stops at G letter of the boot. Any idea? Thanks ...

    Default QDI mainboard Platinix 2D/533

    Hello,

    I have a computer with QDI Platinix 2D/533 motherboard with and Adaptec
    29160 controller. I installed the SCO OPENSERVER 5.0.2 and works fine, but I
    have problems when I tried to install a Realtek 3129c network card. I
    installed fine the Realtek driver (version 5.0) for SCO UNIX and relink the
    kernel, but the problem appears when boot the next time. The boot proccess
    stops at G letter and appears the following error messages "no root disk
    controller".

    I tried with SCO OPENSERVER 5.0.6. and occurs the same, it stops at G letter
    of the boot.

    Any idea?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for your answer.

    I don't know if is an IRQ conflict, because this machine worked fine before
    with WINDOWS/2000 Server.

    The IRQ list when boot the machine (before unix boot prompt) is the
    following:

    IDE Cntrlr 14
    Serial bus 11
    Serial bus 11
    Multimedia 9
    Display 5
    Mass Storage 11
    Network Cntrlr 12
    ACPI Controller 9

    And in the unix command hwconfig appears the SCSI host adapter as IRQ 11. I
    run the setup for the realtek and it display the IRQ 12 for the network
    card.

    I tried the SCSI host adapter (and disk) and network card in another
    motherboard (not QDI) and works fine, I can ping to another machine.

    I'm desperate, because I don't understand the cause of the problem.

    Thanks

    MS systems often use the same IRQ because they poll devices at port
    addresses and don't use IRQs.

    You have two with the same IRQ right there - at 9.
    I also see two 'serail bus 11' messages.

    The Realtek cards can be quite problematic in Unix systems.

    Take out the network card first. And then see what happens.

    5.0.2 is very old - and is was the first semi-stable version of
    OSR5 IMO. The first one that really worked well as far as I'm
    concerned is 5.0.5.

    There were many networking problems [and others] prior to 5.0.5 -
    and of course applying the 5.0.5 patches.

    The old version may be part of your problem
