Linux Mandrake 10.1 installation problem
Posted 14 January 2005 - 04:05 AM
So whats the problem? Does the hard drive require a particular file structure before installation?
All help much appreciated

The other solution to try is to pass the acpi=off option during the install. So, when you get the Mandrake boot screen, type in acpi=off and see if the installation continues without error.

I reset the Bios back to fail safe defaults, then just changed setting which obviously needed changed. Left PNP OS to no and hey presto the install started using the same hardware and discs as before. Still installing and so far so good.
Thanks for all the help and suggestions.
I'm sure I'll be back for more as I intend to get it to talk to a windows 2003 server.
