BT2 Final Install Problems
i tried since 3 days to install BT2 final. but it doesnt work.
I make 2 partitions (2gb swap (hda1) & 8gb ext3 linux (hda2))
then i do mkfs.ext3 /dev/hda2 and mkswap /dev/hda1
after that i startx and fired up the setup
All right, setup successful so i type reboot.
and then ever the same : at boot up :
No boot signature in partition
Operation system not found
i think its a problem with lilo, so i boot up the live cd and typed lilo :
Fatal : creat /boot/map~:Read-only file System
bt2beta works fine...
i do the same with bt2 beta and all worked fine..
i 'solved' the problem, isnt a good & nice way but it works, if someone know a bedder way, let me know :>
after trieing to fix lilo & mbr (unsuccessfully)
i installed bt2 beta boot it up all work fine, so i boot up bt2 final and installed it over the existing running bt2 beta. reboot and it worked : bt2 final
i never use BT1 or BT2 Beta so i couldnt say. I use 3 partitions,a small partition for the Kernal and boot files, and the other two the same as yours (swap,root)
First time i booted it up i had no operating system found but that was due to not configuring lilo properly. ( nano /etc/lilo.conf ) lilo was set to (root = /dev/hda2) but my root was hda4 on my laptop and hda3 on vmware. i forgot to change it the first time.
is it bedder to use 3 partitions ?
i mostly used 2 (swap & linux)
