PC does not find correctly installed VSIDO
« on: April 18, 2013, 12:48:20 PM »
Hi to all : I got two PC's to practise and experiment with VSIDO, latest iso from april 8. On a Lenovo ThinkCentre M57p, after the installation the system did not start up. After some tweaking and resetting the BIOS, it works perfectly. On a Intel Core 2 Duo 6600 ( lspci output see below) no amount of tweaking could make VSIDO start, I just saw a black screen. Then I installed Debian 7 netinstall, it worked from the start. Can anyone tell me where the problem resides ? Thanks !

Howdy El Sid!  It looks like from you lspci output on the 6600 that it has "integrated graphics".  Does this mean that it has 2 video cards, or just that it is using the onboard Intel graphics chipset?  I'll have to assume that it is simply the Intel graphics as your lspci isn't listing a second 'card'.  There are a couple things I'd try;
First when it boots, hit the letter 'e' when you get to Grub and edit it.  It should look something like the following;


set root='hd0,msdos1'
if [ x$feature_platform_search_hint = xy ]; then
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root --hint-bios=hd0,msdos1 --hint-efi=hd0,msdos1 --hint-baremetal=ahci0,msdos1 6b67fed8-816a-4315-89d3-86e3bd6ad4ab
else
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root 6b67fed8-816a-4315-89d3-86e3bd6ad4ab
fi
echo 'Loading Linux 3.7-trunk-amd64 ...'
linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.7-trunk-amd64 root=UUID=6b67fed8-816a-4315-89d3-86e3bd6ad4ab ro acpi=noirq quiet no splash
echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
initrd /boot/initrd.img-3.7-trunk-amd64


The stuff highlighted in red can be changed to all manner of things to get it to boot right.  On the above example, acpi=noirq and no splash were the additions on mine that made that particular laptop work.  "Quiet" was already there.  You could also try 'nomodeset'.  Thats just a quick couple of ideas off the top of my head.  Do a quick google search for "editing grub boot entries" and you'll find a lot to experiment with!

Hope that helps...
