Lycoris won't boot on a Dell Inspiron 5000 (w/ GRUB)
- Hi, I'm a newbie who absolutely loves using Lycoris;
but I'm having problems with my bootloader. GRUB
freezes every time I try to boot Linux--this happens
both when I try to boot from my hard drive and when I
try to boot from my boot disk.
The only way I can boot up Lycoris is to insert the
Installation CD and choose the upgrade option. I do
not have a dual boot; my entire hard drive is
dedicated to Lycoris.
I'm wondering if there is a conflict with my
computer's bios (I have a Dell Inspiron 5000) since my
friend who also has an Inspiron 5000 is having the
same problem with Lycoris (but not RedHat).
I tried installing LILO, but after I run the Quick
installation, my computer still uses GRUB to boot.
I'm sure that I am just installing LILO wrong.
I'm hoping someone out there can either teach me how to
install LILO or teach me how to get Lycoris to boot on my Dell.
