hdc: DMA Interupt recovery
hdc: lost interupt

Ok your linux no apci command worked thanks for your help, but now a new issue is here, I'm able to get into the boot menu? and I logon under root and type in my password, but I'm unable to start "x" i've tried the following commands "startx" and "drakx" I'm going to search for some solutions, post if you know it please, thanks again.
Perhaps you forgot to install the X rpms.
Check with 'rpm -qa | grep xorg' . You should at least have xorg-x11-server, xorg-x11-75dpi-fonts, xorg-x11, libxorg-x11 and xorg-x11-xfs.
startx for instance is in the "xorg-x11" rpm.
If you haven't got anything installed try 'urpmi drakxtools-newt'
Then run 'XFdrake' and configure.
