Hi guys. This is a strange case. I`m trie to install suse 6.4 on my computer but get error when booting.
Ok, I have a computer with windows 2008 server installed and 3 hdd drives. I also have 6 cd`s and two floppy disk. one of the floppy disk is named bootdisk. So I fire up the computer and it`s boots from the floppy, it`s loading and everything is fine. when I come to the window that I can select the hdd I can`t remember what the correct hdd is named, so I abort the instalation and go into the bios to check the hdd name. Ok. I write the name down, restart the computer (without saving in the bios) and it`s boots the floppy again, but when it comes to "Loading initrd" I got a error: please change disks and press a key to continue. I have not change anything in the bios, just went in to see the name on the hdd. So my question is: what happend ??
I also open the floppy disk in windows and it works.
Some other problem is: I can`t get the cd1 to run ether. I boot from the cd1 and it`s loading but when it`s start to Load Linux........ the screen is black and nothing happens at all.
so the problem is: the floppy loads and works the first time but not the seccond time.
The cd1 (Loading Linux....) is not working at all.
Can anyone please help me ? I`m real stuck. I have tried to read the manual but I`m at the dead end here.
Erm... SuSE 6.4 was released in March of 2000, nearly 12 years ago. It reached end-of-life in 2002. I doubt very much anyone is able to offer any real advice other than to use a current linux distribution.
Ok guy`s thank you. Yes that is true, it`s a old suse version, but I tought my computer was old too hehe. I will go for suse version 10 or something instead, maby that will work better.
I tried the VMWare yesterday but that was to old too, maby it`s time upgrade my software
Anyway, thank you for your help, I will trie a newer version.
Why not do as I said, use something that's small and quick to download (and with very good autorecognition), like the Knoppix live CD? See if it'll run on your hardware. If all else fails, it'll still be useful as a recovery disk.
