Subject: [TriLUG] new AMD system - won't boot
I am attemping to install RH 7.1 on a 1.4 ghz AMD system, the components of
which I purchased at the Raleigh computer show. The motherboard turns out
to be a gateway (does anyone know the key to smash to get to the BIOS
setup????) and I loaded the system up with 500 megs of ram and a 20 gig HD.
I can install RH 7.1 from the CDs (but I can't configure X - but that's
another problem). When the installation is complete I can remove the 2nd CD
from the tray, reboot, and the system comes up and says "Missing Operating
System". Any ideas what could be causing this? Any pointers?
