sytem halted no input data on mandrake 9.10

Hi,

Client has a Ml 350 g2 loaded with mandrake 9.10. Installation goes 100%, but when it reboots it come up with a "sytem halted no input data" error & just hangs there.
Any one have any cluse what this means, or even whether its a hardware or software issue. BTW same client has anothet 350 with same installation running ok.

Thanx,
B

Hi,

You don't tell me what it does boot with but... most likely the kernel gets read and uncompressed. The uncompress routine does not find the end of compressed kernel sign.

I suggest to replace the kernel by booting from an alternative media like cdrom.

You have another identical system so the kernel can be copied from there...

Regards,
Bob
