Problem with Mandriva Installation Disk
I want to install Mandriva on a separate hard drive in my system but cannot even get it to work from disk
I downloaded Mandriva 2008.0 checksum is fine and disk burnt
When I try and run from disk it geos through the install process but then there is a black screen. It does not stop during the optional verabl phase but when that has completed. There is avery quick black scree with some white writing that I do not have time to read.
After searching on Google I discovered the F3 option to alter boot up
When I press F3 it gives me
initrd=/bood/cdrom/initrd.gz fastboot splash=silent vga78
research on google gave me various possibilities
splash=silent already there
I have tried these individually and in combination
Is there a sequence issue?
I am working on a Dell Dimension 5150 running Windows XP home SP2
Pentium D930 300 MHz processor
1024 Mb ram
Hard drives 110 and 38 GB
Any help most welcome
