This is the error I get when trying to boot up the install CD, 0.7.2.
boot: Loading vmlinuz..................................... Loading initrd.img...isolinux: Disk error FE, AX = 4280, drive 9F Boot failed: press a key to retry...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you upgraded (ftp install) you need to change "initrd.img" to "kernel26.img".
I didn't upgrade, this is actually the first time trying to install ArchLinux.
I downloaded a 0.7.2 ISO from one of the mirrors and burned it to a CD.
Right, but you did an FTP install, which is equivalent to an upgrade. Your best bet is to use the new isos in the sticky at the top of this forum.
I downloaded the ISO from the sticky and it got farther into the install process, but now I get another error.
EIP: [<c012a1be>] cpu_callback+0x28e/0x2d0 SS:ESP 0068:c1133f80 <0>Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!"
There is also a lot of other information before that on the screen, but it's a lot to typ out. If it's absolutely needed I guess I could take a picture of it on the monitor.
I didn't know if I should start a new thread about this or not, sorry.
