Lilo vs Grub - PROBLEM with lilo


Hi there!

I have the following problem:

Whenever I have grub as boot loader, the system boots up fine, no problems
at all.
If I use lilo as the boot loader, it hangs when it says "Checking root
filesystem".

I don't think I need to post any details about my partitions, since all the information is in
config files which I send attached.

Any idea why it's behaving like this and how to get lilo to work?

Many thanks,

NELSON

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Thanks everyone for all the help.

It was actually something related with my USB filesystem, but I got it sorted.

Everything's working now.

Cheers,

NELSON
