Error on boot: ISOLINUX
I have a Thinkpad 600 and I'm trying to install slackware on it.
When I boot with the install cd it gives me the error:
ISOLINUX 2.13 2004-12-14 isolinux: 0142E58B
I get the same error when I try to boot with a RedHat install cd and with a
slax live cd
However, knoppix STD comes right up, so I know it is booting from the cd.
All three of the disks work fine on any other computer.
I've tried serching all over the place to find a similar error with no success.
The only thing someone suggested was to update the bios.
This sounds dangerous so I don't want to try unless it's the only thing that will work.
Updating your Bios isn't really dangerous if you follow up the instructions correctly and without hast.
Check the web site of IBM or in google with the name of your Bios
so will updating the bios fix the problem then?
Has anyone had this problem before?
Normaly yes, if the problem is known to the Bios maker.
I'd give it a shot.
I'm running into some dificulties. Namely, the self-extracting exe wants to put the bootdisk on a floppy and I dont have a floppy on my thinkpad.
I'm going to try to burn the floppy image onto a cd and try that.
