SubjectRe: PROBLEM: Kernel 2.4.18 Promise driver (IDE) hangs @ boot with Promise 20267
Well, at Samuel Flory's suggestion I tried 2.4.19-pre10-ac2.

Same problem, it hangs whilst trying to find the drives attached to the
Promise controller. Manually adding the geometries makes it panic,
similar to with 2.4.18.

Mr. Flory mentioned earlier that some of my omitted lines during the
boot process were helpful, so I will include them ALL here...

This is my boot process with my old kernel, which has the standard IDE,
PIIX, and HPT366 compiled in but NO Promise driver. Obviously, the
drives are found fine here and they do work... Just slow. :/ The line
with the ******* is where output stops when I use a kernel with the
Promise driver compiled. I don't WANT to use the HPT366 anymore, but
there is NO way to disable it on my motherboard. Part of me wonders if
it is causing a problem, but I don't see any resources being shared...
