Grub Boot error message

Postby Darksider109 » Fri May 29, 2009 12:13 pm


Having finally taken the plunge into Linux and having chosen Mint 7 as my new system I have the following problem.

When booting into Mint I get the grub boot message 'MP-BIOS error 8254 Timer not connected to IO_APIC' though once logged in I get no further problems (as yet :wink: )

Can anyone advise me how I should proceed from here

Thanks in advance
