    Cool [SOLVED] Puppy will not boot from HD


    I am a newbie who has installed Puppy 5.0 (not dual boot) on a Toshiba laptop (P3 500, 392 mb ram, 6 gb HD). Puppy runs great as long as I boot up with CD in drive, but will not boot from HD only. Error msg :

    PXE-E61 test failure, check cable
    PXE-MOF exiting landesk service agent II

    invalid system disk
    replace disk and press any key

    Did not see similar problem in other posts, so assume I installed wrong.

    Thanks for any help.

    PS - I installed ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop (not dual boot) and it runs great, no issues.

    File extension

    I read that using gparted to change file extensions to ext2 would help, so changed them and am now doing a reinstall to sda1.

    Problem solved

    Changing the file ext worked, system starting without cd in drive now.

    That's good news. I always had trouble with Puppy on a hdd but never with it on a CD.
