Disabaling IRQ #16 Error
« on: November 11, 2008, 11:25:10 pm »
I was trying to install linuxmce 7x10 on my brand new pc (Asus P5E WS PRO)
but i allways got this message [xxx.xxxxx] Disabling IRQ #16,
right after choosing witch drive to install to and the pc would freeze the installation.

I tried everything in the bios setup but nothing help.

i den removed the dvd player (ata-133) and installed another dvdplayer (sata)
And the irq error was gone.

I think the installation program disabled my ata-133 (marvell sata/pata controler[legacy Mode])
while it was reading from the disk.

I just wanted to mention this problem to other newbies like myself.
