Linux halts during reboot


On numerous occasions I have attempted to load (and the loading always proceeds flawlessly) many varieties of Linux software; Open Linux 2.3, Red Hat 5.2 & 9, Mandrake 7.1 & 9.2, and recently, Lindows 3.0. In all cases when I attempt a reboot my computer halts at the following steps in the loading sequence (I know that I am a common denominator in this problem, but, if I am at fault then please tell me so that I can correct this situation):


Ide0 at 0x1f0-0x1f7,0x3f6 on irq 14

Ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15

Hda: attached ide-disk driver



I don’t feel that Linux is at fault, I believe the problem is something leftover from the previous Operating System, Windows XP. (In the past the Operating System has also been Win 98 and Win ME.) In Red Hat and Lindows the halt occurs after “ide1 at 0x170-0x177,0x376 on irq 15”. In Mandrake the halt occurs after “Hda: attached ide-disk driver”. I don’t remember where the halt occurred in the pure Linux 2.3.



My present computer is an HP Pavilion 752n, 40Ghz hard disk, CD-RW, DVD, Floppy and Zip drive. (Past computers have been Gateways and AMD) I have been trying to get involved with Linux for the last five years and I have always run into a refusal to boot result after I have loaded Linux. I have tried to specify this problem before and the responses I get try to establish my configuration. I think I am presenting a specific problem scenario which is not a hardware problem. It may be a hardware setting that is in error (CMOS), but, I don’t think that the hardware itself is causing my problem. The hardware is perfect under Windows.

I'm no expert by any stretch, but in your CMOS settings have you selected plug and play OS to no ? My understanding is that linux prefers to to have PnP set to no

Thank you for your response. PnP is set to "no". While I have you on-line, where can I find other responses, if any? I am positively a newbie. I have submitted this problem in the past, but, I never knew where to look for the responses.

Try using the search feature, you never know what you might find, also try searching http://www.google.com/linux . Sorry I don't know enough to give you a competent answer right here.
