    Mandriva One 2007 (Gnome) Crashes on Boot


    My test computer for Mandriva One Gnome 2007 is a Dell Inspiron dekstop with a Pentium III processor, 512 mb of RAM, and a Nvidia card.

    On boot, a message displays "Nvidia Gforce BIOS. 64 mb RAM." Then, the screen flashes "IsoLinux 1.5" and up comes a nice graphical boot screen. It boot, loads, and then the screen goes black. Soon after, I am met wiht a blue screen, and then the message about the Nvidia BIOS flashes on the screen repeatedly.

    What should I do? Should I ditch Mandriva One and try Fedora or Ubuntu?

    BTW, when I mean crash, I don't mean like lose all my data. I mean like it just stalls untill I hard restart the machine and eject the disk.
