Knoppix filesystem not found


I burned the image to CD. Made a bootable disk. Booted my computer and got to setup screen, hit enter and the boot process stalls after it gets to this screen....

looking for CDROM in /dev/scd0

Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry. Dropping you to a (very limited) shell.

Additional builtin commands available.

cat mount umount
insmod rmmod lsmod

knoppix#

That's it, where the knoppix# is a prompt.
Can anyone tell me why it's not working.

You burned the image to CD... Do you mean you burned it as a data file, simply copying over the .iso image to the cdrom, OR did you actually burn the ISO image to the CD? You can check this in any OS by putting in the CD that you burned and opening it up. See if there is just 1 file, the .iso file, or if there are many files, and directories.

Cool

There are many file and directories. That's how I created the bootable CD.

MasterC, he woulden't even be able to boot if that were the case.

Yeah, I misunderstood. I thought he was saying he made a boot floppy. Just the way he said "I made a bootable disk" seemed to say to me "boot floppy" to boot the CD.

Things I'd try:
See if you can specify a different CDROM drive. Check to see that the image is full (do an MD5 check on it).

Cool

md5 check came back OK. It seem as though it's not recognizing the CDROM drive or not reading the CD.

same Problem

Hi,

I have the same problem over here.


Funny thing is:

Knoppix used to work (almost) perfectly (I have a Dell and I have to pull the plug before I can reboot after using knoppix). After I installed a second hd the error msg turned up.

My disk runs perfectly on other systems is a fix in progress/complete?

At the "boot:" prompt type "knoppix nodma" (without the quotes). This should fix the issue.

Have fun with Knoppix!

It solved the rebooting problem but I still get stuck after boot with the limited shell...

several others seems to have similar problem and concerning the fact that their posts where 2 years ago I installed debian on my box
