I have two 10GB HDD's and I want to Ghost a UNIX image from a master onto the two of them. (doing it one at a time) One drive will boot, but the other will not.

One has 1024Cyls the other 963Cyls, and this is the only difference I can see between them.

The HDD's check out okay but Unix won't boot off the drive with 963Cyls but will on the one that has 1024Cyls.

Could the problem be down to the amount of Cylinders or something else?

Thanks,

G.

Probably something else. I know in Windows you have to set the partition active, I don't know what you have to do to prepare a drive for Unix. OR, it could be something like a jumper setting on the drive causing a problem.

What's the frequency, Kenneth?
