Asus A7N266-VM with AMD Athlon XP 1800+ processor 80 GB hardisk.AGP 4X

, video adapter memory size is 32 MB .Total ram 256 MB

hi
1.)did u format ur partition during installlation,if not do so

2.)we can talk about the monitor,graphics card once the system gets started

3.)personallly i feel u should go by standard partitoning mechanisms ,instead of sunig acronis or others partitioning system

hi kochar

for the screen going blank
what u can do is try
ctrl+del+(-,+)
for 3-4 times
ur monitor frequency might be different that is the reason

as far is virtual PC is concerned ,i haven't tried it
what is virtual PC???

if the media test failed out then the full installation might not have been completed

regards
gaurav

hi gaurav
i press Ctrl + Del (+,-) but nothing happen. and when i press menu

button on my monitor it shows 53.6 KHz/ 85 Hz. and while installing

linux it shows 31.4 kHz/ 69 Hz.By the way i want ask is that will

redhat 9 automatically probe my
hardware as i mention above. or there is problem with my pc.
as far as VIRTUAL PC( Connectix Virtual PC now microsoft vrtual pc

2004) concern its best software to try any operating system without

damaging your system.
i quote bellow from documentation of software and its best software to

try any operating system without damaging your system.

"Connectix Virtual PC for Windows emulates ‘in software’, the

components of a PC, including a Pentium class CPU, the video card, the

ASICs, Ethernet card, the C: drive, etc.

Because of this complete software emulation, it is possible to install

into Virtual PC complete PC operating systems and programs, and these

will execute as though they were running on native hardware. Virtual PC

gives you the ability to run entire operating systems and application

environments within a window on your PC. The new OS and all its files

are encapsulated within a single file on the host that acts as a

virtual disk, thereby shielding it from the host system and other

virtual machines without having to repartition or reformat hard

drives.
