I have been having more problems since i have last been on the forum. I tried to use the live cd (disk 1 of my Mandriva disks) but nothing, lilo just keeps on loading with no choice to use the cd even though the bios is set to boot from cd. I have also tried re-installing Mandirva again and it hangs mid install i cant even complete it i belive its a faulty burn but im not sure. I have added apic-off to the boot line before i tried all of the above and no joy.
How do i remove lilo from my system? I dont have a floppy drive that i can create a boot disk from, Do i create a cd boot disk and go to msdos and type fdisk/mbr ? (thats what i have been advised by microsoft)
How would i go about creating a boot cd from win xp ?
