View Full Version : [other] SRST failed (errno=-16)

December 26th, 2009, 03:12 AM

I have a machine here that runs Crunchbang Linux 9.04 on a 40GB HDD (IDE). But on booting, it shows two lines of this error:

ata1: SRST failed (errno=-16)

Two hard drives are connected, one with Windows and the other one is Linux. However, Linux does not detect the other partition. Both hard drives are detected in BIOS.

Please help. If you need more information, let me know.

Sorry. This issue / thread is closed. We found out that the IDE cable is defective that causes the error.
