I'm not quite sure what you mean - is this after an install or after you've just booted the CD?
This is because something has gone wrong so that files needed to boot can't be found....
We will not make a 64 bit version for now - no need to do that - almost everything is 32 bit anyway

Hi

Have you tried burning the cd again at a lower speed?

Does it work on another computer?

Seems a problem with some sytems:

Some people have installed by:


"Instead of hitting enter just digit

vmlinuz initrd=initrd.img"

Hi

You said "yes it work on a my old pc pentium 4"

Can you install it on your P4 or is this only as a live CD?

Does this error only occur when you try to install?

If so try to download and burn CD again at a lowest speed
