CentOS 5.5; New Install System will not boot
Posted on 2010-09-18
I just installed CentOS 5.5 on this system. I was successfull in setting up the OS (over net install) using the netinstall iso and installing from the mirrors.kernel.org website.
however upon reboot i get the folling errors:
if i press ctrl + f1 i get the black boot screen and this is what i get:
1. enabling /etc/fstab swaps: [ok]
System then sits there and does nothing (blinking cursor)
On the main screen i get "starting networking" .... then if i wait nothing happens
if i hit more details it says bring up interface eth1
I have tried 2 different Network cards (onboard and pci card add in) this is an intel 875p series chipset.
I reinstalled selecting only the desktop versions, same result. It seems that i am getting 3 different errors and none of them match up correctly, i also tried setting a static ip address (during the install) and am still getting the same results.
