I downloaded the 0.7 iso to install Arch on my girlfriends PC.
In an unrelated incident i removed all my linux entries from lilo so i couldn't boot linux, assuming i could simply boot it with the install CD if i needed to. but i can't. it says do:
so i do
but the disc starts as normal - great!
any suggestions, please?!
Same here, but mounting your system and chrooting in it provides me with all my needs though.
Too bad the cursor is 6 spaces in front of the insert position, very irritating.
Doesn't the new release work with the Udev naming convention /dev/sdX (for SATA drives). I have never booted of my hdd when I lost my lilo. I've always chroot-ed and reinstalled lilo.
Unfortunately, the system on the 0.6 install CD does not create /dev/sdX entries, but only /dev/discs/discX/partY, so I always have to change my lilo from /dev/sdX to /dev/discs... and change it back once I get my system working.
Is this somehow fixed in the 0.7 iso?

i had to do:
but i DID try, before i even posted:
who knew to try vmlinuz?
it's pretty crap it has to be said! i found that on the wiki! the instructions on the cd need to be made clearer - even if it is just to say
arch root=/dev/hdXY arch root=/dev/discs/discX/partY vmlinuz root=/dev/hdXY vmlinuz root=/dev/discs/discX/partY
until you get the right one
well, yeah, obviously there is, and it tells you to boot that kernel to rescue your system but you actually had to use vmlinuz it seems
