Unable to boot using LiveCDs on my Laptop
I have a Toshiba 1900 laptop which is only running Windows XP professional and has the following specs:
I am trying to boot using a LiveCD. In particular I have tried SystemRescueCD (www.sysresccd.org) and grml (www.grml.org).
I have verified that the images have burned successfully on the CDs by running them on another desktop machine with no problems.
The problem is that when booting on the laptop, SystemRescueCD hangs on the message "Probing SCSI..." and I have tried waiting 30min for this... nothing.
grml also hangs at a similar message... "Scanning for aic7xxx"
Solves that particular problem...
Thanks for that tip Man. But now I am getting a whole bunch other problems with the boot... too many to list here so I am going to try some other LiveCDs and see how it goes.
I agree... "Damn it all to pus-spewing blood-gutted hell!"
