Ok i have read everywhere online i can think to look about this problem but nothing seems to work at all. On more than one distro when i try to install it hangs on the ESR value before vector : 00000002. Now when i look online everyone talks about it being something simple as a kernel rebuild or just change the disk out. But for me i am having this problem with every distro but redhat 9.0 and fedora core 2. Gentoo, Debian, Mandrake 8.0 through 10.0, LBA- linux formaly SOT linux. Now i have noticed a few things about this problem that maybe no one else has. Redhat and fedora are i386 based and the rest of the distros are i586 and i686 based. Also the older 2.2.X kernel will boot and install but as soon as the install is done and the newer kernel boots it hangs with the same problem again.
My system Specs:
AMD Athlon XP 2400+
200GB Western Digital Hard Drive
ECS K7VMM motherboard
I cant think of anything Else to help but right now i am back in Winblows and well there are no logs from boot time. If anything else is needed Please let me know.
