    Default BT4 Does Not Boot

    After doing many reinstalls, BT4 just refuses to boot. I have edited the lilo correctly as far as I know. After I execute lilo everything seems ok until it says One warning issued. I then reboot and the computer hangs at verifying dmi data. What is the problem?

    Well some more info might be good.

    For instance how does your lilo look like. Can you boot from a livecd?\
    What is the warning issued?

    I am dual booting it with vista. I have fixed the lilo it no longer gives me an error. When the computer boots up the vista bootloader automatically starts vista, if I set the bt boot partition to the active partition it just hangs at Verifying DMI Pool Data. And yes I can boot the live cd.

    Code:
    lba32
    boot=/dev/hdc2
    root=/dev/hdc4
    
    # bitmap=/boot/sarge.bmp
    # bmp-colors=1,,0,2,,0
    # bmp-table=120p, 173p,1,15,17
    # bmp-timer=254p,432p,1,0,0
    # install=bmp
    
    # delay=20
    
    prompt
    timeout=50
    
    # map=/boot/map
    
    vga=0x317
    
    image=/boot/vmlinuz
                 label="BT4"
                 read-only
                 initrd=/boot/splash.initrd
                 append="quiet"
    
    #Windows
    other=/dev/hdc1
    label=Windows
    table=/dev/hdc
