lockup after bios check
Here's what I got...
Pentium II 300mhz
currently I am not using the 10 gig. The 40 gig is partitioned into a 512mb swap, 30 gig slackware 10.1 (running 4.6.10 kernel) partition, 1 gig Damn Small Linux partition, the rest unused.
I had the slackware partition running fine, then put on DSL. At first my lilo got screwed up but I got it fixed (i thought) and slackware booted up fine. Next time I tried to restart I choose to bootup the slackware partition and it says "booting slackware.... BIOS check successful" then the screen blinks off (as it always does) but instead of blinking back on and showing the text of the loading, it hangs. I left it for 10-15 minutes and nothing happened. I tried turning it off then back on and slackware booted up fine again. my next restart I had the same lockup, this time when I restarted it did the same thing. I restarted about 5 times with the same result. when I try to boot the DSL partition it works fine. Any idea what could be causing this? Thanks in advance for reading and any suggestions that might help.
