Mandriva 2006 Free boot problem
I first installed the free edition on an external HD and when it booted for the first time it gets stuck before the bootloader menu even appears. It printed L 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 08 on and on over 100 times. At this point nothing works and i am stuck.
I tried reinstalling linux, then recovering windows and erasing all other partitions but i still got the same error. I tried installing linux all by itself on the main HD and it worked fine and thought the issue was fixed. I then recovered windows again but this time it displayed L 99 99 99 99 99 ... and got stuck again. Any help on what to do would be most appreciated.
