Can't get DSL to boot. Please help!
Hi! I recently found out about DSL and figured i'd give it a try, since nothing else ive seen will work with my computer. Anyway, im using it on another hard drive that's on my computer. (master is 6 GB, has windows 2000, FAT32, slave is 1.5 gb, has DSL, FAT) To boot it i have to type in:
and everything loads just ducky. i get to the setup, select options, and select all the stuff. then it starts to load....and....it's a black screen. there is hard drive activity, which makes me wonder if it's not a video problem. to back this up:
i select the first option, select 800x600, select 24bit color, and the screen is and get a missing module, fatal error...etc. i reboot, select the first option (again) select 800x600, 8 bit color (256 color, i think) and get a black screen. ive tried EVERY POSSIBLE combination of settings possible, and still wind up with a BLACK SCREEN! Here is the overview of my computer:
Cyrix MII 224mhz (same as PII)
SiS 5598 (video)
64 MB RAM
a 4x cd-rom drive
a 3 1/2 floppy drive
and if you need anything else, let me know. Thanks alot!
