slackware 13.1 installed successfully, but boot failed
Posted on 2011-02-16
spent the whole day trying to figure this out myself...but finally bowing down and asking for help!
Oh, and I'm new to Linux.
Successfully installed slackware 13.1 on a HP ProLiant DL380, with a RAID5 configuration. But once I reboot, the screen stays at the following stage and doesn't proceed(the cursor keeps blinking.)
Attempting boot from Hard Drive (C:)
If I boot from the Installation DVD, I can see the following partitions:
Device boot start end blocks id system
/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 1 245 999584 82 Linux swap
/dev/cciss/c0d0p2 * 146 34866 141253680 83 Linux
Googled about this, and seems like quite a few people are having this problem. But couldn't find any suitable solution. Has anyone came across this?
