I downloaded knoppix 3.4 (english version) build: 17-05-2004 (the most recent version i think). i burned it with k3b under linux and booted the cd. everything went fine until i rebooted my computer. i get the following message:
searching for boot record from floppy .. not found
searching for boot record from cdrom .. not found
searching for boot record from scsi .. not found
insert boot diskette in a:
press any key when ready
i have inserted the boot diskette and started fdisk and it said i didn't have any fixed hard disks present. i'm thinking knoppix destroyed my hard disk! can someone please help me!!
maybe some additional info will help you to find and fix the problem:
1) before i booted knoppix, at boot time i didn't get "searching fo boot record from scsi .. not found" but there was "searching fo boot record from ide-0 .. " and then the bootloader grub started.
2) i mounted two hard disk partitions (under the kde) when is was working with knoppix for the first time, but i forgot to unmount them, maybe that is where it all went wrong?
3) my hard disk is a Maxtor 40GB and my bios is an amibios. that all worked correctly for over 2 years and now, its done with it (especially the hard disk)
if you have any suggestions, please help me, i'm a real computer fan and i want to continue working on, as soon as possible!!
