installing to an HP Mini 311
The mini came with Windows 7. Would like to keep a small partition for that and do a dual boot. Shrank the W7 partition to 50 gigs, leaving 170 gigs for slack. Have burned the iso several times with no issues in the burning, verified the burn. Did this in slack ( in my main system) and in W7. On the Mini, there is no ineternal dvd drive, it uses a usb drive.
When trying to boot from the slack iso (any of the several that I made do the same thing) I get the boot prompt. Hitting return it gets about half-way through the .......... section then hangs. Then the following message comes up:
Disk error 80, AX=42DE, drive 90
Things booted fine from gparted-live which was burned on the usb dvd-drive.
I'm lost. Should I go to the usb-stick boot or have I missed something?
Not having slack on the Mini is starting to give me hives.
