I have a question about installing Linux OS on a laptop.
In fact, It seems that I cannot do it. I tried RH8, Mandrake 8.2 & 8.0. Every time, just after loading, the screen turns blank and nothing happen.
I have some information with RH, which tolds me, before crashing :
" CPU number disabled
Intel Machine check architecture supported
CPU0: machine check exception: 000000000000004
Bank 1 : b200000000000115
Kernel Panic : CPU context corrupt
Inidle task - not syncing "
I don't know what is the problem. My configuration is PIII 700Mhz, Video: ATI rage mobility. HD 20Gb Hitachi, 128Mb Memory. My HD is partitionned and formatted.
The other OS I wanted to install crashed also. Windows 2000 crashes, Windows98 SE too.
The only way I could have a OS installed on my machine is by using the reinstall CD that was sold with the laptop.
Thanx for ANY help or tips.
