Stuck CPU - on boot from install media
Hi. I'm trying to install Slack64-13.1 on a server at work. It's an Intel Xeon 5430, 2 x quad-core, 8GB RAM. Currently it has a 13.0 32-bit version (compiled with BIgMem). Upon boot from DVD I get the following message:
Booting Node 0, Processors #1CPU1#: Stuck??
And then as it says, it stays stuck. This is from the new DVD, and i have done a md5sum on the raw device (/dev/sr0) matching the md5 - although I did get an error burning the DVD saying finalisation was not complete. Because the md5 matched the raw device I was not perturbed by the so-called fail.
Anyone seen this and managed to get around it ?
