Slackware 13.37 64 boot hang in new asus laptop
I have problem with slackware 13.37 64bit on my new asus n43s laptop (no-preinstalled OS).
After installation,when booting where the dmesg is scrolling suddenly the screen is dark
and my laptop just hang.
I suspect the problem is with hdd advanced format . I can be wrong,though.
I have brought the laptop to asus service center, they said the hdd is fine.
So here's data that I took using live cd from the laptop.
seems that for advanced format hdd, the partition needs to start
from multiple of 8 or something like that.
Before like this I had partitioned using partedmagic using gparted gui, starting from
63 IIRC, the end result is the same ,i.e. Slackware hang in the middle of dmesg
Anyone have solved this kind of problem?
I'm getting frustrated
If you guys need more data just let me know
If you could run the Slackware installer successfully, then this suggests there is no problem with running Slackware on your machine.
It is more likely that you have had some problem in the install, either an incorrect setup or some corruption on your install media.
I suggest checking the validity of your install media and reinstalling.
doesn't look like a hdd issue. have you tried this?
