Knoppix 6.2 Live CD...Help!


Windows Vista is not booting on my Dell. I've unsuccessfully tried all the repair options available to boot Windows and am now trying to boot with the Knoppix Live CD.

The computer is trying to boot from the Live CD, but all that happens is the appearance of two penguins in the upper left hand corner of the screen. The penguins show up quickly after the computer accesses the cd and stay there as if something is stuck. I understand the meaning of the two penguins (dual core processor) but I'm guessing that something is wrong. I am not familiar with Linux, but am guessing that there is a root or home screen that shows up 'post-penguins.'

I'm sorry if this discription is vague, but if anybody has any suggestions I would be very appreciative!

Thanks

Try some of the cheat codes for knoppix. No acpi and failsafe and noscsi but check actual cheat codes.

Try a few other live cd's.




Sadly the Kind of Live cd's is unable to maintain the best live cd anymore.
