ram

You have to check it with memtest . If it finds any error and you don't know which one is broken pull out one an try to boot.Repeat with the other if necessary.You can find memtest at many live distos, and Mandriva dvd too. Start system from Mdv dvd and run "memory test" option.

HI LAST_SIOUX
i've check it using memtest , the memtest didn't found any errors , i seems that something else causing that problem perhaps it's my hard drive (it use IDE controler),i am using now mandriva 2010.0 it's works fine without problems.

what do you meen by that' Do You have SATA drive but working in IDE mod, or you have ATA HD. In second I don't see any problem, in first case also shouldn't be any problems...(but I do not know).

I doubt it is your hard drive.

I have had many a problem with getting Mandriva to work right on the first install. If it takes three times reinstall it three times. I believe that Linux installers need some work because small Distros usually are not a problem but big ones are. It has to be the hard drive drivers are different than the BIOS ones in my opinion. If you can I recommend installing a Distro you don't want and then put Mandriva over it on the same partition. I have had the best luck this way and I think it alters whatever the junk installer driver does that messes things up. This is just based on my intuition but if anyone has a better opinion go ahead and state it.

i doubt toothat it is to hdd

You can try to play like suggested but i would play differently: try installing 2010.1 and then upgrade, either via net or from dvd .

I would like to offer a suggestion shahin. I am multi-booting with 3 OS's using a IDE harddrive with no problems. I installed Mandriva 2010.1 KDE then updated. Once updates were complete, my 2010.1 became 2010.2. Might be worth a try.

All the best,

Ian

Did you burn Mandriva? What about the live and powerpack versions? My first Linux install, which was slackware, then Debian and finally Centos, produced all sorts of failures, until finally I figured out I burned the disks at too fast a speed. For iso's I think the only speed that works is 4x (I burned the CD sets, I'm not sure about the DVDs). So, if you're not sure about the media, try burning it at 4x and do a sum check.

If I'd of filtered this advice from the tomes of advice I was receiving here, it would haved saved me a lot of time.
