IDE / AHCI mode decides what system is booted?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 21, 2012
Or, more precisely, the mode decides what boot loader is read from the hard disk, how does it do it? Reason I ask is, when I use IDE Linux is booted via GRUB, when I switch to AHCI in the BIOS FreeBSD starts with its own boot-loader. Nothing else must be changed to provoke this behaviour. What is the cause for this?
Here is the setup:
The mainboard (see my signature) has two controllers for harddisks. One is for 6G-SATA and holds the sda-device. The other is PATA-capable (and thus uses IDE) and holds an older PATA-disk and the CD/DVD-burner from which I installed all systems. This is the layout of the SATA (system) disk (the IDE disk just holds some data):sda1 ext2 /boot
sda2 ufs FreeBSD-slice
sda3 ext4 unused
sda5 ext4 / (root SuSE 11.4)
sda6 ext4 /home (SuSE 11.4 and 12.1
sda8 ext4 (Ubuntu)
Originally sda1 had the bootable flag, but during the installation of FreeBSD sda2 became bootable.
Now, when I use IDE sda1 fires up GRUB but when I switc
[SOLVED] Loss of data when switching to ahci from ide?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 24, 2011
I have installed openSuSE 11.4 on my machine configured as shown in my signature. (Reason: I have an older pata 250 GB disk which I thought couldn't handle ahci). The BIOS has the disks configured in the oldest mode (ide), because I was afraid to lose data on the old disk.
Recently I changed the BIOS-settings in a fit of cockiness to ahci during a boot where I didn't need the old disk. Everything was normal . Can I switch permanently to ahci without danger of data loss?
Sorry, this is a very much noob question, but I'm simply afraid to loose data and my installation -- and I'm curious, too. And I would like to use the modern features of my disk(s) like NCQ...
LXer: AHCI vs. IDE Modes With A SATA 3.0 SSD On Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 5, 2012
Published at LXer:
Days ago benchmarks were shared from OpenBenchmarking.org that compared AHCI and IDE modes under Linux when it came to the resulting disk performance. There was a fair amount of interest generated out of that so some AHCI vs. IDE mode comparisons from a Serial ATA 3.0 SSD on an Ubuntu Linux host were benchmarked at Phoronix.
Bios config: "ahci" or "standard ide" for a sata drive ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 4, 2006
I am about to install Slackware 11 and I am wondering what settings to use in the bios for my sata drive. I have three options: "standard ide", "raid" and "ahci". There is only one harddisk so I guessed raid is not the way to go, but I am at a loss about what to choose between "ahci" and "standard ide".
In the same category, the bios offers me two choices for the harddisk options "32-bit data transfers": "enabled" or "disabled". Guessing, I would want it to be enabled, but the person who sold me the computer changed the default enabled to disabled for some mysterious reason. Which is right ?
Motherboard: ASUS P5W with intel ICH7 chipset.
Harddisk: maxtor 300 gb.
Thanks in advance,

best distribution for me for C/C++ 3D OpenGL GLSL [eclipse IDE/CDT]
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 4, 2008
I know everyone hates the question "what is the best distribution", because the question leaves out "best in what ways" and "what bugs and delights the questioner most". So I'll try to ask the question better, and request answers only from people who have tried several distributions.
Here are elements I need (probably some of these are solid in every Linux):
+++ the linux distribution that supports my needs with the least troubles
+++ nvidia driver support (for 7800 and 9800 (and soon 280))
+++ C/C++ development tools with IDE
+++ OpenGL 2.0 or higher
+++ GLSL shader support
+++ GLEE or equivalent
Here are elements I want to have:
+++ the latest release of eclipse IDE (3.4+) and CDT (5.0+) install and work reliably
+++ informative graphics information utilities (like glinfo, glxinfo, GUI equivalents)
+++ latest GLEE installs and works easily (i just include the files into my project)
+++ most helpful and knowledgable distribution experts in the di
problem copying files between sata (fedora 13) and ide (windows)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 29, 2010
I currently have three hard drives: (2) 150GB IDE drives (windows) and (1) 500GB SATA drive (fedora13). I'm trying to move files on the IDE drives to the SATA drive so that I only need the SATA drive. The SATA drive is running Fedora 13 and the other two were old NTFS drives that I just use for space now.
So most of the files copied fine, however, for a handful of them I receive the following error:Error splicing file: Value too large for defined data type
This happens when I try to copy files not only from drive to drive, but even from folder to folder on the same drive. I've read about a 2GB file size limit, but none of the files are that size. I have no idea why this is happening. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
USB to IDE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 12, 2010
I purchased a Cables Unlimited USB to IDE adapter. I am using Ubuntu 8.10 and nothing shows up under computer or anywhere else. I was aware when I bought it that it only supported Windows and Mac, but for $22, it was worth a shot. Any ideas on how to get it mounted? I am not exactly a newby, but I'm pretty lost on mounting procedures and the like.
