    Welcome to the forums!

    If you are sure you burned the CD properly, you might try playing with some of the kernel boot options that are available to you by F-key right before the disk begins to boot.

    Also note that 2008 is out now:

    Mandriva Linux 2008 now available

    Watch the screen for the opportunity to use them through the F-keys right before the CD begins to boot. Enter the option of your choice on the boot command line, then press ENTER.

    see the first time i booted it up fine. and i installed it to the hard drive. and then i booted it off hard drive and it went fine. then someone told me that i should go into control and disable acpi in the boot loader so i did. then i rebooted. and then it would not boot up after. it said basicly there was an error or some type and it sent me to a login screen where i could log in with username password and then it said repair filesystem 1 #


    so i've been trying to boot off the cd since then to just reinstall it.

    is there a way i can fix the install on the hard drive? itself.
