Laptop Won't Boot after Loading Linux
Am trying to solve a strange problem. Have a laptop that works just fine when booting Windows or DOS. When I boot Linux and turn the system off, then the laptop will not even get through the BIOS. It turns itself off after a few seconds. I have tried Astra Linux and Ubuntu with the same result. If I boot up to the Grub selection screen and then turn the system off, the laptop still boots correctly. When I remove all power sources to the laptop, it will then boot correctly one time and then the problem returns.
So what is the Linux kernel doing to my system that is causing it not to boot? Could the kernel be changing my system configuration?
I have compared the CMOS under DOS and Linux and there are four bytes that are different but I don't have the CMOS map for the device.
Any guidance would be appreciated.
