If I select "CD-ROM" from the SBM's menu, I get "Disk error! 0xAA" (or "Disk error! 0x01" before the 0xAA error, if I say "y" to save settings).

But ya never know till ya try. BTW, we’d love to hear your feedback about the solution. Does that depend on kernel version? Remote Desktop Services could not disconnect a user disk for the user account with a SID of

I have no chance to add more RAM, so that's not an option. but during the boot process the "boot from cd" doesn't work though i can select that option in the BIOS menu. The good thing is that if I succeed with Smart Boot Manager, I can test all those distros out without messing up the working Windows. additional hints Accueil »Forum »LiveCD/LiveUSB »Disk Error 0xAA Pages: 1 #1 Le 14/04/2008, à 19:40 Nishoba Disk Error 0xAA Salut à tous,J'ai décidé de me lancer et d'installer Kubuntu sur un vieux PC.Après
Chances are that the manufacturer has a new driver for it that will fix the boot from CD problem--along with other things.

On its bios there is the option Boot From CD but though i set it, it doesn't work. get redirected here So Tiny Core is out unless you bump up the ram.

Sorry for providing different link. I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. i have a installation cd of Ubuntu.. http://applecountry.net/disk-error/disk-error-or-no-system-disk.php No such feature in BIOS.
Is it something to do with the boot managers, the hardware, the cdrom image? That sounds great Figuring out how to boot reliably seems pretty important. oz Reply With Quote 04-13-2010 #3 Passiday View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message View Articles Just Joined!
Chances are that the manufacturer has a new driver for it that will fix the boot from CD problem--along with other things. Slowly raised the money selling off the older Laptops I had running Linux to pay for it. The network PC Card was recognized successfully, but the sound card and modem unfortunately not. so in this way i hope to get a working Cd Boot.
So, I keep the CD ROM drive in the laptop's bay, but to do the installation I'd attach the enclosure with floppy. Accepting Death is the only way to stay alive. it still doesnt' work now i'm looking for a way to know the I/O port associated to my cdrom if i look into /proc/ioports I can see some stuff associated with my review here Join Date Apr 2010 Posts 28 Ok, here's the update: I successfully installed the Smart Boot Manager, but it fails to boot from CDROM.
The time now is 06:42 AM. I see that there is config menu item "Set CD-ROM I/O Ports", but neither I know what those ports are, nor I know if that's all what's standing in SBM's way Are you sure that your Knoppix CD was made properly and did you check the md5 sum of the iso that you burnt? And a Usb port.
PLOP: "CD not bootable" Hmm....I can boot the Compaq Presario 1245 with only one boot manager, and I can't boot the Compaq Presario 1210 with either of them. But I don't really have access to other PC with floppy drive (of course, there is that one on the laptop itself, but to burn the floppy it would take booting http://www.yolinux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialRecoveryAndBootDisk.html#GRUB logos34August 1st, 2007, 04:34 AMhitting enter more firmly? Both laptops will boot from cdrom, but that shouldn't matter.
I insert the floppy and the installation cd in the computer. so in this way i hope to get a working Cd Boot. How dit you solve it Dave-Hall?? I hope not.
But I have no idea if there is any other distro that can use the scarce RAM very effectively. It puts my humanity at risk. At least I don't know if that's possible to burn distro on CD, boot the PC in DOS, and then somehow install that distro from CD. So I tried DSL4.4.6 (well established--should have a lot of bugs worked out, etc).
If Slitaz had a i486 version (which Ithink it does not) I would have recommended it also. Accepting Death is the only way to stay alive. Please check for more information. I can't guarantee it will boot on your gear though.
