    Unhappy error 8 kernel must be loaded before booting

    I put the .iso on a CD load it on my comp, it says loading stage 2 then goes to grub. I type in boot it says its starting up then it says "Error 8: Kernel must be loaded before booting. Any solutions?

    I don't have any other forms of Linux installed into my comp just Vista.

    Thanks.

    I will speculate that since you tried to use a cd this is your problem. You will need either a dvd or usb stick in order to get started.
    Check the faq section as well as the how-tos for more info.
