Can't boot -- 'shadow RAM' at fault...?
I'm trying to get 'potato' up-and-running on a box that thought it
would have Windoze, a Compaq Presario 4660. CMOS says 2 instances of
shadow RAM are present, but doesn't provide a way to turn that
'feature' off. Debian gets as far as the line about "freeing unused
kernel memory" and then halts, system locked up at that point.
- Is this -likely- to be a shadow RAM problem?
- Would Phoenix really have made it impossible to turn shadowing off?
- Any solution in view other than "buy different BIOS"...?
- Any other tips, clues, theories on why Debian is halting there?
