    [SOLVED] Live CD not working anymore?

    DO NOT MIND THE TOPIC TITLE, COULDN'T CHANGE IT (or can I?)


    Okay, so first I had windows XP install and now I installed Mandriva

    Windows XP boots just fine from the GRUB, but Mandriva only loads a tiny bit and then hangs at something like dev1/bf0 device not found

    I partitined my disk to give half to XP and half to Mandriva, then installed Mandriva in D:\ which was unpartitioned space, chose "largest available space" and installed

    ...But why won't it boot now?

    Re: Can't boot mandriva! O noes!!

    I'm not sure. Are you saying it worked for a while and then stopped? Or has it never actually booted successfully?

    Mandriva never booted

    Here's what it looks like in partition magic

    Can you take a picture of the screen when you're trying to boot Mandriva and it fails? Thanks.

    I have similar problem. After initial splash screen and showing "loading linux kernel" the installation hangs with a blank screen.
    If you have solved the problem, pls post here.
    TIA
