Unable to install distro on clean drive
Ok, so old laptop (Acer) went to acting like it had snail butt for propulsion so I decided to wipe the drive and give it to Goodwill. I
know, nice guy, yada yada. So anyway not wanting to spend money, I went looking and found the free version of Dariks B and N.
Used a downloaded version of Dban. It ran its course and finished with a Blannco splash screen that would not go away. So I
pulled the disk and decided to load Slackware 14.1. Started getting error PXE-E61, followed by PXE-M0F blinking on and off. So I
thought maybe it did not quite finish, so I let Dban run another couple hours, and again with the Blannco screen, ugly color
scheme by the way, and tried to install Slack. Same crap. I have tried everything, I think the disk is bootable, went in and re-arranged boot list to fit, but same thing. The drive is turning, and I am only getting this error. At first I thought maybe a HDD detection problem but no errors indicating that. Any ideas?
