!0.1 hangs on boot


I have tried to install 10.1 on 2 different drives with 2 different sets of cds and it ALWAYS hangs on boot. So I am not using it until I can figure out the problem. I have seen others with this same problem. My question is I have seen an updates cd for 10.1, does this update cd have the boot fix on it? Is this a 10.1 bug? Is there a urpmi fix for this problem? Thanks.

at what point does it hang?
On mine it hung at the apm stuff, I had to enable apci in the lilo config.

I think it was "checking hardware" and I had apci enabled once. It was irratic, sometimes it would boot, sometimes it would hang.

sounds like harddrake, maybe.
Can you try an interactive startup (it asks wither you want to, or not, run each sevice)
skip harddrake or which ever is hanging.
Hopefully you can get to your gui, do the easyurpmi thing, and update.
Then see if it happens again....
