ferret Posted January 16, 2007 Share Posted January 16, 2007 I have an ASUS P5B motherboard(basic model) and a core2 duo 2.13 6400 with and antec 650 power supply and 2 x 1 gb sticks of kingston ddr2 800 ram. My graphics card is a Nvidia geforce 7600 gs. I have a floppy drive and 1 dvd burner(not on the same connection cable) My harddrive is a sata drive hooked up with of course a sata cable. I have windows xp home installed and everything works perfect except I CAN USE ANYTHING LINUX AT ALL. I can't install any linux distro or use any live dvds/cds. When I try to use a linux live disk an error message comes up that says can't find file system for mepis(example) halted! or Can't find knoppix filesystem, sorry. dropping you to a(very limited shell). press, reset to quit. Additional built in commands avaliable. CAT MOUNT UNMOUNT INSMOD RMMOD ISMOD kNOPPIX#_ I have tried 5 different optical drives and checked the ram and its fine. I tried with just 1 stick with no luck. Is something in the bios settings the problem. Thanks for any input. Great show! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
