I know I was just reading a thread that discussed this problem but I can't find it now.
After installing lilo, I rebooted my system. Blank screen.
Took a while (and a dog walking on the keyboard) to figure out, but Lilo is there, it just does not display a whole lot. It only displays "lilo 2.2..." in the top corner. When I hit shift at this point the full menu comes up. If I don't do anything, it sits at the black screen and eventually boots to windows.
I would really like for the menu to pop up right off the top.
Heres my lilo.conf:
# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
# Start LILO global section
boot = /dev/hda
#compact # faster, but won't work on all systems.
delay = 100
# VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
vga = 791
# ramdisk = 0 # paranoia setting
# End LILO global section
# DOS bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/hda1
label = Windows
table = /dev/hda
# DOS bootable partition config ends
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda2
label = Linux
read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking
# Linux bootable partition config ends
After some reading I noticed that I was missing some stuff so I added the following lines after the boot=/dev/hda:
map = /boot/map
install = /boot/boot.b
default = Windows
I am still having the problem. Anyone have any ideas they could share with me?
