RAMDISK: couldn't find valid ramdisk image starting at 0.


How do i solve this.. I mean i got the patch from http://dediziert.org/~tyrant/linux/b...1.4-2.6.6.diff but that is for the 2.6.6-rc2 so i removed every instance of -rc2... Could this be the problem?

I have just had the same problem, but windows would not boot either. After shuffling around my memory, I found a memory slot to be faulty.

If I placed memory in the faulty slot, the BIOS would not load. If I used memory in the faulty slot, and memory in any good slot, I got the above error. If I didn't use the faulty slot, then everything fine (apart from damaged hardware)

You still don't say what happened... I assume from the link you're trying to get a bootsplash thing to work?

I have the same error message

Hi, when booting my Zenwalk 5.2 I see this message. I wonder whether this is a major failure and want to know what I can do. Hardi2000

Please create a NEW post for your question. Do not try to resurrect a long-dead thread.

Is this even a Slackware CD you are trying to boot from?

Worked almost everything...
just Unable to locate RSDP
and the conection to the web, donīt open none address, it canīt resolve...l suppose..l will
investigate..
