View Full Version : stage 1 boot failure error loading hd(40)/boot

August 26th, 2014, 01:44 PM
System was working fine one of the tech run boot -r thinking it will reconfigure the system like on a sun machine to detect new scsi card he was installing
now system stuck at "stage 1 boot failure error loading hd(40)/boot"
I manage to get my hand on boot disk for the OS
tried #hd(40)unix As per documentation
Return unix not found

fd(60)unix.Z root=hd(42) as per forums search from net

it didn't help either

fd(60) unix root=hd(42)

loads the kernal but system go into panic

Any info how to get boot repaired will be helpful
Xenix 2.3.4

Thanks in advance

Platform? Vendor/Version of Unix?

There's not enough information to say much yet.
