 Post subject: Unable to install Linux(incl. PCQ2006)
PostPosted: Fri May 12, 2006 1:23 pm 
I have a Compaq Presario SR1518 IL. Config. is
P4 2.6 Ghz, 256 MB RAM, ASUS CDRW, 40 GB Western Digital HDD running Win XP Pro. Monitor is Compaq MV7540. Intel 845G chipset.
My problem is that I am unable to install any of the linux distros(& that incl. PCQL2006) available. Whenever I autoboot using my CDROM:
1) The welcome screen appears and I press enter to install.
2)it shows"Uncompressing vmlinuz.* .... OK" and then the system restarts for no apparent reason. In case of PCQ2006, it shows"Uncompressing the kernel...OK" and then hangs.
I tried the following:(and trust me ,they dont work)
1) the boot options...all of them -> nodma, noprobe..even text install; nothing works.
2) the image files->cdrom.img in case of RHEL4, boot.iso in PCQ2006 et al.
Ironically
Linux distros that originally shipped with Compaq PC's e.g. Turbolinux for Compaq,Mandrake 9.1 for HP, are installed easily.(yup, no restarts)
I would reallyl ove to have PCQ2006 on my machine.
CAN ANYONE HELP?

To vasuatpcq:
Dear vasuatpcq,I am talking in terms of type of the system,i.e.desk-top/work-station/note-book(lap-top)/tablet P. C. etc.I need to know which one of these is his system.
Sure enough,there may have been such a system having Mandrake 9.1 pre-installed,but here Kshitij Kumar Singh is talking of the older times,when Compaq had not yet been acquired by H. P. .........he has clearly differentiated between the two in his post.
Yours always,
