    Full Distro Mandriva Linux 2005 limited edition keeps rebooting over and over


    After I installed it. I click reboot and machine keeps rebooting. Everything says ok while its booting. The very last thing it says while booting is activating swap partitions then starts rebooting again. It keeps doing this over and over, under linux or failsafe mode. Anyone help me please this is my first time installing any version of linux.
