Mandriva 2006 Installation Problem Compaq Presario SR1518IL
I have a Compaq Presario Desktop SR1518IL .
Whenever i try to boot from the Mandriva 2006 Mini CD the system restarts for no apparent reason. I tried using the install floppy with the cdrom.img file but it was of no help;same for hd-grub install(using the hd-grub.img). I get the same problem when installing other distributions of linux(e.g. Fedora, Suse)Even a live-cd won't work.Installation of windows ,however,poses no problem.
My System Configuration:
P-IV 2.26 GHZ
128 MB RAM
40 GB WESTERN DIGITAL HARD DISK
CURRENTLY RUNNING WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL.
