Full Distro Mandriva Linux 2005 limited edition keeps rebooting


After I installed it. I click reboot and machine keeps rebooting. Everything says ok while its booting. The very last thing it says while booting is activating swap partitions then starts rebooting again. It keeps doing this over and over, under linux or failsafe mode. Anyone help me please this is my first time installing any version of linux.

Did you set put grub in the MBR for the First Partion on your Hard disk ?

Also if go in to your bios and set plug and play OS to none, that has caused me problems before similar to yours. other than that i do not know what it could be.

but not to worry one these guys here will figure it out

Cheers, Rusty
