    Yesterday I bought a SATA controller to try an axperiment with SATA disk (WD Raptor). Debian Linux recognize perfecly both controller and disk, The installation end without problems but when I try to reboot the system, the OF does not find the kernel to boot.
    At the end of installation Debian suggest to reboot with boot /pci/scsi/disk@0,0,0:1 boot/ root=/dev/sda2 but doesn' work!!
    I confessed I'm not a fox with OF commands, but what kind of command shows the partitions on a scsi disk?
    The disk is very fast...the installation ends in 10 minutes...!!! I think on a normal work it would be amazing!! 8-)

    bye sukkulento

    Hi,

    there might be an easy solution to the problem using the Raptor SATA disks (or any other SATA disk). You could try a SATA <-> ATA converter board. I found these for less than EUR 20 in stock.

    I also have a raptor and such a converter, but just a Pegasos I G3 600. So it would be a waste using this fast disk on a rather slow machine, but I might try out if it works.

    It could still work if you boot debian from an ide drive
    ie
    ide harddrive partition 3 /boot 100M-1G
    sata harddrive partition 1 swap
    2 / (root)

    this way OF can read the boot kernel and linux can read the sata card/drive
    you may have to rebuild the kernel to have the sata driver .

    you could use an IDE-SCSI-Adapter with a SCSI-Controller.
