This is the site you need for PCLOS support, temporarily. You *should* be able to register there.

Which version of PCLOS did you download? 2007 TRx? These are Test Releases, and are not considered "final". The current (TR3) version has some known errors with USB devices on certain setups. TR4 will hopefully fix that, and lead to the final 2007 release.

Well, it's not the site for "help" issues, but take a look at myPCLinuxOS.com. The folks who run that are largely the same ones as run the temporary site, as well as the official site (whenever it comes back up).

Maybe they can help you get registered on the temp site.

Edit: I see you're already there...

" well it gets to searching for the loop image: /dev/hdc

============

1. Put your PC "model number" into a search engine along with "PCLinuxOS" to see if others share your experience and possibly have already found a solution.

2. MD5sum check the CD.

3. If MD5sum is good, boot the CD on some other computer.

4. If the CD works in step 3 above, try disabling boot up options on first computer. Of particular interest "high color and resolution video".

5. If possible, try individual memory modules (of at least 256MB) independently.

My understanding is a "loop image" is an area of RAM that is masked as a hard drive. Like the old DOS RAMDrive.

Trying other live CD distros could narrow your problem down to a hardware issue. For those distros repeat step #1 above.

Please post your PC make, model #, and progress, so that others may benefit from your experience.
