Re: Boot procedure loops

Hey, i downloaded a boot cd and the install procedure got into a loop right at the first question (Choose language - after choosing a language it just keeps asking the question over and over again.) First i thought it was a hardware compatibility problem (an old pentium 220) but then i tried it on brand new pentium 3 machine and it did the same thing over again.

Has anyone heared of such problems? Is there a way to fix this? A workaround maybe?

Allright, i found what the problrem was... The cd i was booting from was downloaded and burned on a win2k machine and for some weird (microsoft) reason the image got truncated to about 20% of it's size and files in the image were corrupt. dbootstrap looped because it couldn't read the language files off the cd. It was a microsoft problem realy...
