BT3 won't boot
Hi there, i'm really happy with this new release of BT!
I downloaded the USB version, copied it to my USB-stick and made it bootable. When i'm trying to boot from USB, i'll get a black screen after i selected the boot option (Tried different ones like Compiz, KDE, text-mode). The only thing i see are those two modules that are loading after i selected a boot option. When the screen turns black and i press the 'off-button' a screen will appear which i recognize from BT2 as the boot screen while loading the hardware, but nothing happens.
I someone who can help me out with this problem?
Thanks a lot!
did you check the md5sum?
Did you format the usb with the proper file systems? I'm making one right now Ill post the results in a few
Because you get to the boot menu it's rather unlikely but you could try another usb port.
Especially the front usb ports often don't work (but then u usually don't get to the boot menu either).
btw: my usb-stick works
My USB is fat32, like i used with BT2. I'll try ext2 and ext3 and post back my results.
Changing the filesystem didn't solve the problem. Maybe i should try the cd first. If that one is working perhaps it has something to do with my USB drive, which i can't imagine.
I have the same problem. I tried it using both USB and DVD (I haven't tried the CD version). I see the lines for vmlinuz and initrd, then shortly after, the screen goes black and all activity stops, the system becomes totally unresponsive and I have to power it off. I'm not sure whether it gets past initrd.
This is on a Dell Vostro 1000 notebook:
AMD Turion TL-56

ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 256MB
Post or PM me if I can supply any more relevant info. I guess in the meantime I'll download the CD image and try that.
Edit: the CD does the same thing.
Same here, except that the CD is working for me.
Was not able to get BT2 to boot from USB either.
Do I need to partition the Mem-Stick with a Swap-Partition?
To get 1 thing straight: your USB needs to be FAT32. FAT is required for syslinux to work.
Try to get to console mode when your screens goes black: CTRL+ALT+F2
I'm also having a similar problem with both CD and DVD versions (havn't tryed USB yet)
After selecting the environment KDE/Flux etc, presented with a blank screen. Hitting the power button brings up the loading screen and the system locks up
