Mandriva ONE 2010 fails to install; BootLogo file too big
Acer Aspire 3203, Athlon II x2.215, 4Gb Ram, Nvidia GeForce G210; HD 750Gb as drive C and D with RAID fuctioning and Windows 7 preinstalled.
BIOS P01- A0
The machine IS set to boot from CD drive first!
Yesterday I ran the Mandriva ONE 2010 Live CD on this brand new computer and EVERYTHING worked until I clicked on LIVE INSTALL.
There was no response whatsover so, I tried again and again .... still no response. In desperation I turned to a Mandriva 2010 Free DVD and booted up.
I clicked on the first set of windows choosing default language, keyboard etc. and then waited for the process to continue.
Up came an error message saying that the BootLogo file was too large .
As suggested I typed in the word "Linux" and the process continued until the following message appeared.
"Cannot read partition table of device mapper /pdc_ccbdaihclb"
Suggesting that I wipe the drive and thus lose all my data.
I am no lover of Microsoft but would rather keep Win7 for the moment until I am happy with Mdv 2010 on this machine.
Does anyone know of a workaround tp this problem and/or if it is being addressed in forthcoming Mdv 2010 Spring?
Thanks in advance for any information regarding this problem,
