Black screen / freeze in BT3, but not in 2 or 4
I am running an Averatec laptop with a SIS M741 video chip.
It boots BT2 in VESA mode if I use the XCONF command before running the STARTX and it boots BT4 in safe video mode, but it will not boot BT3
It extracts the first 2 files with the ............ across the screen, and then the text should start scrolling down the screen, but it just sits there.
I was able to get one error to appear:
Kernel Panic - Not Syncing: Attempted to Kill Init!
Can anyone help ?
So if it works with the latest that has ( as of know ) less bugs and security holes then why use the old one?
