Tried arch linux - not to good.


I tried Arch Linux in vbox (Idea from itsbrad212) and the results were bad:
First:
Upon booting, it said fsck on /dev/hda1 failed provide root password for maintenance.
So i entered the root password and then it only mounted the / partition as read only and it did not mount any of the other partitions.
It turns out the / partition is /dev/sda1 not /dev/hda1.
Now, i also found out i cannot connect to the internet.

Try building in qemu first. You have more options for cpu, sound, and networking.

Second, you may need to use
Code:
ifconfig -a && ifconfig ethX up
to get the the system on line.

I've merged your two threads together as they would seem to be closely related...

Post dmesg. You may need to load the driver in single user mode.
Second, try the arch wiki.

Changing all references in fstab to /dev/hda1 to /dev/sda1 fixed the boot problem but there is still no network.
