It has been a while I’ve been around here, as I didn’t need some extraordinary help.
So the problem I’m experiencing right now is as the title says, I get, before I even run in installation, “Try (hd0,0): Ext2” message, and the machine can be only restarted or shut down.
I got to this by using “instluxNETOpenSuSE10_2english.exe” from Browse instlux Files on SourceForge.net as I have no other option to install my Tux. I was thinking that it was because of the older version of OpenSuse in the instluxNET, so I’ve also tried the same with “gNewSense” distro, but the result was the same.
What I have set up in “boot.ini”
[boot loader] timeout=30 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS [operating systems] multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="XPP" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect C:\g2ldr.mbr="Install"
I don’t know if this is quite right set-up as XPP is installed on second partition as the primary is ready for reformat and installation of linux. I think that’s why I’m experiencing this as everywhere I look, anyone refers to have Windowze on primary partition.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I’m really, really… >:) on using Windowze anymore.
BTW: Content what I’ve found left on the drive after trying to get working also the gNewSense install:
c:\win32-loader cpio_list linux newc_chunk cpio.bat **grub.cfg**: *linux /win32-loader/linux video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr vga=788 priority=low -- initrd /win32-loader/initrd.gz boot* **pressed.cfg**: *tasksel tasksel/desktop multiselect gnome-desktop tasksel tasksel/desktop seen false d-i debian-installer/locale string en_US d-i time/zone string Europe d-i console-keymaps-at/keymap select us d-i console-keymaps-at/keymap seen true d-i netcfg/get_hostname string _vg_ d-i netcfg/get_hostname seen false d-i passwd/user-fullname string reeboker d-i passwd/user-fullname seen false d-i preseed/late_command string wget http://goodbye-microsoft.com/stats/finished_install_on_`udpkg --print-architecture` -O /dev/null d-i mirror/http/proxy seen true* cpio.exe gzip.exe uninstall.exe initrd.gz
I’ve searched around and came just to this issue regarding Ubuntu Wubi, but I’m trying to get normal (dual-boot) Linux installation on my first HDD partition.
If you can pin-point me to some material how to setup offline/online installation without media, maybe extracting some of the primary files of a LiveCD distros, that, I guess would be helpfull too, as long as I get around that “Try (hd0,0): Ext2”.
