I tried installing slackware 11 on my laptop dell xps m140 i tried using huge26.s kernel. After installation was over and said "rebooting....". it never passed from there. So i outed off by pressing the power button. And when i wanted to boot again the it said someting like checking bios something and then went on a black screen. And it never booted. Does anyone know what could possibly cause that problem?
Try to boot, from the CD, into your new installation, by typing
"huge26.s root=/dev/hda1 noinitrd ro"
at the CD "boot:" prompt. Remember to change "/dev/hda1" for the actual partition you choosed, maybe "/dev/sda1" if you have a SCSI or SATA drive.
Then check the man page for lilo.conf to study the different options, and reinstall lilo.
Yes I Did install Lilo on the MBR. When I use sata, bareacpi It installs great but some hardware doesn't work I have tried building my own kernel but it still doesn't work I must be doing some stuff bad.
