Hi, I'm trying to use the bootlap.fs floppies to install 1.6 on my
Thinkpad 770 228 MB ram on enire HD (wd0 is 657 Cyl, 64 Heads, 63 Sec/Tr
I do a net install, and everything seems fine but systems doesn't boot from
Using the rescue floppy, fdisk reports that partition 3 is being used; on a
hunch, I changed things to use partition 0 and set it bootable.
Still, no boot.
From the rescue floppy, in /usr/mdec/ I did:
$ ./installboot biosboot.sym /dev/rwd0a
(I have the whole disk in the A partition, and no swap partition).
Still, the machine does not boot.
Any suggestions? And, has anybody else seen this problem with 1.6 install?
