Mandriva One 2007 crashes on boot, right after "Enter", not even starting X.
I have downloaded Mandriva One 2007 LiveCD and i was not able to start it up at all. But i really want to try it, so please help!
The PC crashes right when the second orange screen appears. I understand that on this screen there is a progress bar on the bottom-left, but this is at zero, never more.
I noticed that once the second orange screen is up, then the CD and hard drive do something very quickly (within a second) and after this the system freezes. Num Lock, Caps Lock, Alt+Ctrl+Del do not work, the cd-rom stops eventually, all indication lights do not change state, no sound from hard-drive. Complete stop.
I have been reading about possible problems with Mandriva 2007 and all i could find was a possible problem with the graphics card. I have ATI Radion Mobility M6, which apparently had a problem that eventually was fixed (see http://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=25562).
I also have tried to pass-on some options to the system through F1. I have tried "failsafe" and "live text" options, but all resulted with the same problem.
Please let me know what type of commands i can pass-on to the system on start-up to try to track the problem.
