Bug#123427: cant re-install debian after hardware upgrade

Try a different flavour... The vanilla kernel is probably hanging while
probing for some hardware you don't have... SCSI drivers seem to be
particularly bad for this... I find that the "-idepci" flavour of boot
floppies tends to work best for your kind of setup (new hardware, no
SCSI, etc)..

Get them from your favourite mirror at

Subject: Bug#123427: cant re-install debian after hardware upgrade

Package: boot-floppies
Version: potato (stable)

flavor: dont know, just downloaded the standard floppy set
architecture:  i386
model: self-built. amd athlon xp 1700+, elitegroup k7s5a motherboard
memory: 384 mb pc133 sdram
scsi: none
cd-rom: 2x atapi cdrom (samsung dvd player and philips writer)
network card: safeway 10/100 pci
pcmcia: none

im having some problems re-installing debian. i just upgraded my
from an athlon 1000 mhz to the athlon xp 1700+, put in a new
more memory and a bigger and fast hard disk.
/dev/hda1 linux ext2 4 GB
/dev/hda2 windows xp vfat 35 GB
/dev/hda3 linux swap 512 MB

i already installed windows xp, and now i want to install debian (i had
config before the hardware upgrade and it was all working fine).

insert the rescue floppy, press enter at the welcome screen and the the
kernel start loading. it hangs after the message 'loaded md driver
....', my computer hangs and it doesn't do anything anymore (not even
ctrl-alt-del). so power off and on again is the only solution.

do you have any idea what could be wrong? too much memory? the ata-100
