I had the same exception error until I went into system startup and changed the
value for Plug & Play OS to <no> The only problem now is after installation the
Linux boot menu doesn't display an OS for me to choose. Boots right into
Windows 2000 Server. During the installation I followed the advice posted in
the left hand column of anaconda to not create a new mbr if your dual booting
with windows nt/2000. Anaconda said to create a boot record in the partition
where Linux is to be installed. The only shot I have to boot linux is to use
the boot disk that I created at the end of the installation which I suppose is
used to start Linux if no boot loader was choosen. I choose grub as the boot
loader. Any help or recommended books I should read would be helpful.
After using the boot disk to start linux I'm brought to a commmand prompt
asking for logon credentials. After providing logon credentials I only see a
commmand line. During installation when asked the role of the system I choose
server. Then added the gnome and kde desktop on top of the default setting of X
Windows. Is there a way to start the gui from the command line?
You'll need to add an entry to your NT boot loader if you didn't install the
bootloader to the MBR; see the Linux+NT howto for more information.
As to why you didn't come up in X, you will probably have better luck asking on
a mailing list with more complete details about what your video card and such
are since bugzilla is not a support forum. I'd recommend enigma-list
