Error when trying to boot .iso from partition.

Postby DayOldPorridge » Mon Mar 03, 2008 8:45 am

I've booted from .iso with various other distros, and now as I've decided to try out Linux Mint on one of my spare partitions, I decided to just go with this installation method as I usually do.

However, when I tried to boot the .iso just now, it said that vmlinuz was an "Invalid or uncompressable executable type". Anyone else had this problem?

Here's the grub entry I have:

Code: Select all

title Mint Installer
kernel (hd0,0)/mint/vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1 boot=fll quiet vga=791 fromiso=/mint/mint.iso
initrd (hd0,0)/mint/initrd.gz
boot
