unknown pci device

I have a problem booting linux with floppy image disk on my
unika nb6200 notebook.
the following mistake appears:
unknown pci device: 1039:5107

it does not go on, all is locked. I do not know what to do to solve this problem.
thanks for help
best regards

Try booting with a "bare" image (slackware calls it "bare" or "bareapm" if this doesnt work, you have an incompatible device in your system, and you wont be able to run Linux.

Ok, now please motivate that rejection, did you TRY my suggestion? If so what happened?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

i have already tried bare.i and other image bootdisks but the
problem is always the same.
somebody told me there was a no_pci.i image which may solve the problem. i have to check out this file somewhere and try.

look in your bios for the pci setup, set this to auto, when it is on auto, set it to manual, otherwise ask your vendor about your bios, maybe it need some upgrading !

frow: what difference will that make? Linux probes the hardware regardless how this is set, if his hardware isnt compatible, it isnt compatible.. period.

i do not have pci options in bios to setup auto or manual, so

Then your laptop wont run Linux, atleast not with the current kernels.
