"Checking for new hardware" on verbose startup and then hangs
my setup is WinXP on primary master, Mandrake 10.1 Community on Secondary master.
i have had no problems booting, until I re-enabled a second network card which I had earlier disabled (in windows). I disabled the first card (also in windows)
When i booted linux i wondered why it seemed stuck at 80% so i hit esc to go into verbose mode and I saw "Checking for new hardware" but it refused to do anything else.
have tried turning off the computer and on again. same problem.
what am i doing wrong?
