Q. My CDROM drive attached to Stratus ftServer 6210 is not working and it is dumping me with following error:

hdb: lost interrupt
hdb: lost interrupt

hdb: lost interrupt
hdb: status error: status=0x59 { DriverReady SeekComplete DataRequest
Error }
hdb: status error: status=0x40 { LastFailedSense=0x04 }
ide: failed opcode was: unknown
hdb: drive not ready for command
hdb: lost interrupt
hdb: status error: status=0x59 { DriverReady SeekComplete DataRequest
Error }
hdb: status error: status=0x40 { LastFailedSense=0x04 }

How do I fix this error under Linux?

A. Open your /etc/grub.conf (CentOS / RHEL / Fedoa Linux) or /boot/grub/menu.lst (Debian/Ubuntu Linux):
# vi grub.conf
Add piix.intel_via_libata=1 to the end of each kernel line:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-21-generic root=UUID=8c2da865-13f4-47a2-9c92-2f31738469e8 ro quiet splash piix.intel_via_libata=1
OR
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.13.el5 ro root=LABEL=/ console=tty0 console=ttyS1,19200n8 piix.intel_via_libata=1
Save and close the file. Reboot the system:
# reboot
