Re: Laptop not booting under the 2.6.20-1.3036 kernel

Hi,

I've installed and updated my son's laptop using the F7T3 dvd and it
refuses to boot. It gets past grub, starts to load vmlinuz and then
restarts.

I've tried nopci and noprobe as command line options but it continually
reboots.

It's an old laptop - Compaq Presario 1246, but it should be able to
handle things.

The HD was installed originally on my laptop (x86) and transferred over
- I've done this plenty of times in the past. If I put the drive back in
my laptop, it boots fine.
Have you had any success yet ?

If not, at the grub prompt, can you adjust the grub boot line to not include rhgb and quiet. You might be able to catch the last message before the reboot.

A capture to serial console might be the easiest way to get the messages.
