Boot Hangs

Post in this forum for problems at boot time, if there was no problem for burning the disc. For example can't find the CD, or strange errors when you press enter at the very first prompt.

Boot Hangs

Post by gatorback » 13 Jun 2007, 06:35

I have a 48MB RAM \ 40GB HDD AMD 300Mhz Compaq Presario 2256 that hangs during boot: it stops at the line:
Freeing unused kernel memory: 412k freed
I have tried adding the noapic and nodetect options, but this did not help. I think the authors have done a wonderful job with this and hope that I can get partimage to ghost the drive.

Thank you!!!!

I had the same problem. Try using version 0.2.19. If you are not running a 686 chip the newer versions of SystemRescueCD will not load properly.

Hope this helps.
