View Full Version : Firewire Hard Drive causing F8 boot to hang

I have an external Hard Drive that would not detect in F8.
I ran: fdisk -l and discovered that the hard drive had a OnTrack Disk Manager installed on it.
Windows ran fine with it.
After hours of trying to remove the Dynamic Disk Overlay, i finally succeded.

I am not sure if it did this before I removed it, but now when the firewire external hd is turned on while booting F8 just after starting the udev module during bootup I get a screen displaying the values of registers, stack and the call trace with major routines being sbp2 or something along those lines and the boot hangs.

Any ideas how to fix this.
