When I boot my computer from the boot.img floppy it start to read the
floppy and produce the message: SYSLINUX 1.48 1999-09-26. A second or so
later it adds Boot failed to the end of this output. The total output on
the screen then is: SYSLINUX 1.48 1999-09-26 Boot Failed. My computer
currently have RedHat 6.2 on which I would like to upgrade to RHL7.0. It
did not have any problems with the RHL6.2 boot image.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create boot floppy from respin boot.img
3.Then the error...
Actual Results: SYSLINUX 1.48 1999-09-26 Boot Failed
Expected Results: Installation screen
48M EDO RAM
10G Hard Drive
Try a different floppy, it looks like your floppy media is bad.
Thanx, that resolved it
