Installation of "RC1" Debian-Installer fine, but will not load


Hi.

I just installed Debian through the Installer Package, the Release Candidate 1 (Build 20040801). It all went through no problem (save for having to use noapic nolapic to disable "buggy APIC interrupt routing. That was the only way I could get the keyboard to work during the install.

The GURB loader loads fine, allowing me to select Debian 2.4.26-l-386.

Then, it goes through the boot process, but hangs after the command:
hda: attached ide-disk driver.

Then it does nothing.

Nothing at all.

I checked around a little, but couldn't seem to see anyone else with a similar problem. The recovery mode doesn't work either.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, and sorry if this has been covered before.

did you create a boot floppy during installation?

if so, try to use it to boot into the debian system.

or use knoppix.

try editing /boot/grub/menu.list

and add "hda=none" to the end of the kernel specification line
