Problem at booting


Hi folks,

FedoraCore2

Occasionally during booting, the PC hanged at
....
.....
Updating ESCD....
Building DMI Pool......
Verifying DMI Pool Data....

I have to push the cable and jumper wire of HD, Floppy Drive, including unplug/replug them. Then the PC booted up again.

Remark: The HD is connected to ATA-66 Controller.

I could not find out its cause nor can I indicate when this problem will happen.

Please advise how to fix this problem. TIA

B.R.

This sounds like an intermittent hardware problem.

"I have to push the cable and jumper wire of HD, Floppy Drive, including unplug/replug them. Then the PC booted up again."

See if you can isolate exactly which device it is. If you have a spare floppy or spare hard drive then swap the spare and see if the problem goes away.

Hi jailbait,

Tks for your advice.

Today on booting this PC, it works without problem booting straight forward.
