Bug#47101: install boot trouble
network card: none
i am having a problem loadin the initial kernel and install. i boot from
the low memory floppy i have created from lowmemrd.bin. i get the boot:
prompt and have tried numerous boot options, including the default. The
install reponds with:
Now loading the kernel.
It then reboots the laptop, boots off the low memory floppy disk again and
i come back to the install screen with the boot: prompt.
i am doing a hard reboot to boot of the floppy and have tried the following
boot options with no change in the boot behavior: reboot=w, mem=3712,
hd=548,8,38 and floppy=thinkpad. i have searched through the BootPrompt
HOWTO and various FAQs including the laptop FAQ but ahve not found
anything. This laptop is not listed in the various laptop databases so i'm
not sure where to turn next.
Any assitance or direction would be very much appreciated. Please let me
know if i can provide further info.
be kind to your mind
