Mandrake 10.1 installation problems
Hi! I am new here. I tried installing Mandrake 10.1 Official on my ThinkPad R30. I encountered no problems during the installation process but when it came to the point that I was booting it up, that's when trouble started.
I chose linux in LILO and I had it in verbose mode and there were no apparent problems. I was expecting the log on dialog, like which user would log in but nothing came up on the screen. I left it like that, thinking it might take a while but still nothing happened. I tried re-installing but the same problem happened. Please help me. Thanks!
I encounted the same problem on my notebook ACER 1861WLMI
Installed smoothly, configed the XORg and setted to autostart with X, install LILO on the linux partion, after reboot it shows BIOS data checked and cannot continue bootup.
