Debian Not Fully Installing!


Okay, Installed Linux many times, many diffrent operating systems probably installed debian the most.

Iv got a HD that i have ran debian on b4, actully the complete PC i have. but i need to reinstall it bekuz of some new parts what ever.


My problem is i got thru the part of installing and when you take out the cd to boot your base system, the base system gets stuck booting to finish installation, same cd i always used... help me please guys.

What hardware change did you make? What version of Debian are you using? What kernel are you installing with? Is it a server, laptop, or workstation?

If a workstation, you can try Etch instead of Sarge, it has a newer kernel and might solve your problem. If a laptop you can try the noacpi option.

Only New Hardware is the power supply and case, that shouldn't matter though. Iv installed debian before on this hardware setup.
Its a desktop yes. I just got some more data disks, so im going to make new debian disk too. Whats this Etch and Sarge you are talking about?

Sorry, I haven't checked it out for a while. It used to be (i.e. 6 months ago) a linux distro chooser. What is it now (I'm getting nervous because our company firewall seems to be filtering it)?

Sarge is Debian's stable branch. It uses a 2.4 kernel by default with the option for a 2.6.8 kernel. Etch is Debian testing. It is newer and is the working copy of what will become the next stable release (slated for Dec 2006). I think it has a 2.6.16 kernel.

yes it is a distro form.

I got 90% Ark Linux, which was the highest percentage out of all of them, so i am downloading a copy now, to see if it will work, it seems nice.
