The system is automatically booting from lilo and the message stops after dots "Loading Linux-2.6 ............." . No more messages and loading.
Where do i start to discover the problem? Is there a parameter can i use at lilo to try starting Slackware?
You could use the install cd1 to boot your system!
Once the cd1 is booted you can respond to the boot: with;
boot: root=/dev/hda1 noinitrd ro
You can change the device (/dev/hda1) to your set.
Once you have your system booted then confirm your lilo.conf is correct then you can write;
#lilo -v -t -b /dev/hda #this will test lilo
#lilo -v -b /dev/hda #this write to /dev/hda
If you are able to write the lilo then try a reboot.
If not, do you have the virus protection set in your BIOS?
