I tried installing Mandriva 2005 and....
HELP!!!! I tried to install mandriva 2005 and nothing happened. I formated and created a linux partition on my hard drive. I changed the bootup cycle and set the cdrom to boot first. I boot to the cd and the first screen came up that said press enter to install or upgrade or F1 for more options. Ether choice goes to an infanite black screen. If I push nothing it goes to the blackscreen in thirty seconds. The hard drive doesn't spin, neither does the cdrom. It doesn't light up and I don't hear my processer crunching. My Windows XP cd will boot and I have loaded red hat 7 and 9 on the computer before with no problem. Has this happend to anyone else? Does anyone know what this might be?
