    Default BackTrack 4 R1 lilo.conf setup - what did I did wrong?

    Hey guys,

    recently I installed SlackWare into my active & running system with Windows 7 and BT4R1.
    It also installed LILO (because I wanted it to ;D) and recognized Windows. OK,
    I copied the boot entry from SlackWare, changed the root partition to the backtrack one and tried it...
    It starts perfect, but it doesn't seem to accept any user inputs, I can't even type in my login name...
    So I changed the read-only in lilo.conf to read-write and ran lilo -v again, no change.
    Did I did anything wrong? If yes, please tell me how to fix it =P
    Here's the important part of my lilo.conf from SlackWare:
    # Windows bootable partition config begins
    other = /dev/sda1
      label = Windows7
      table = /dev/sda
    # Windows bootable partition config ends
    # Linux bootable partition config begins
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
      root = /dev/sda7
      label = SlackWare
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
      root = /dev/sda9
      label = BackTrack4R1
    # Linux bootable partition config ends
    Greetings ;D

    Come on, can't be that hard, eh?
    Just tell me if you need more information.

    Or does anyone know a way to install GRUB over LILO without installing any other OS on my PC?
    (from BT4 ~ Debian - would be easy, but I can't access it ;D)

    Greetings ;D

    If anyone know the answer they will post. In the mean time try harder.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.
