Does booting with 'linux nopcmcia' help?

Comment 2 Ian Anderson 2004-02-14 21:40:02 UTC
Tried booting with both 'linux nopcmcia' and 'linux noprobe'
still dies at Running /sbin/loader, no obvious difference.

Comment 3 Ian Anderson 2004-02-18 00:52:19 UTC
Good news: can get past Running /sbin/loader if I disable the on-board
USB EHCI controller
Bad news: this disables my USB mouse so it is not a solution.

Comment 4 Douglas Peale 2004-03-03 06:56:06 UTC
I have the same problem with a USB mouse plugged in it hangs at
/sbin/loader. If I have a PS/2 mouse plugged in, it boots fine &
installs fine, even if that PS/2 mouse is the same mouse with the USB
to PS/2 adapter installed.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-04-15 04:58:58 UTC
Does this continue to happen with test2?

Comment 6 Ian Anderson 2004-04-15 21:37:42 UTC
Problem appears to have been resolved by a combination of test2 and
BIOS upgrade to system.
