OK, update time.
Swapped out all optical drives for one older, plain jane CD-ROM.
Swapped out 6GB Western Digital drive for 41GB Maxtor.
Swapped out IDE cable going to optical drive.
When I get to the line where it tells me to hit enter to boot or type in
a command etc. I type ? get a list of commands. I try
(OK is the prompt)
can't load 'kernel'
no bootable kernel
elf32_loadimage: read failed
can't find 'kernel'
Yet, as I've said before.
Loads up fine on my mom's laptop. I get to the main installation screen
(the one with all the initial options). I'm thinking of swapping out the
IDE cable for the hdd but I'm fairly certain that won't change anything.
I'm ~6h away from having 7.2 to burn to disc and try that way.
If anyone has any suggestions (short of actual voodoo), please please
please let me know.
