When you get to the boot menu after poweron, press 'e' to edit the
boot commands. Then temporarily disable the graphical boot by deleting
the 'rhgb' at the end of the second line.

The system will boot and stay in text mode, and we should see some
messages that give us more hints.

everything boots fine until after the following..

Fedora core etc etc etc.....

then i get the following error..

critical temp reach -296 c, shutting down
couple of disk drive messages


system shuts down.

Comment 3 Sahil Verma 2004-03-16 07:50:35 UTC
Oh wow, -296 C? Is it always -296 C?

Traced this to drivers/acpi/thermal.c which happily calls poweroff.
Can you try booting with acpi=off appended to the kernel command line?
Note that this isn't a fix, just a workaround. You should be able to
boot, though.
