Linux Loader Error: L99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99 99

This error message occurs when lilo is unable to locate the second stage bootloader.


This error may occur, if the hard drive is in normal mode, but lilo has written the boot record using logical block addressing mode. Switching the bios hard drive parameters to logical block addressing allows the bootloader to start normally, but now the system may not start properly, because the partitions cannot be located due to geometry differences.
