when installing 2005 limited linux on my new pc it refuses to continue the installation after it fills up the loading bar.
what to do to get there:
boot from dvd, press enter to reinstall or install, loads up, stops there
after a half an hour i pressed esc, and it gave me "preceding" it seemed to be able to accept some unix commands [could type them in] but gave no action or response.
am i missing something? do i need to mkdir and give my self root access? i didnt need to do this with my other linux machine [suse10]
any help would be great, thanks in advance
ok, after a good nights sleep.. i got to thinkin.. the dvd im using is the 32 bit version... i put in a 64 bit amd.. could this be the issue? im dl the new os now to see if it works.. any other thoughts?
Using a 32-bit OS on a 64-bit system will still work, most 64-bit pc's come with windows xp 32-bit preinstalled on them. i personally had the 32-bit version of Ubuntu on my 64-bit laptop for a while. Try the 64-bit version hope it works for you
