    Blah, this thing just ate my post so I'll make this one short.


    I am doing a dual boot system with XP and Mandrake.

    I install XP first, then Linux.

    XP works fine, and Linux only runs the first time you boot it up.

    If you log off and restart I get this error while trying to load Mandrake.


    localhost login: ldm_validate_partition_tables(): Disk Read Failed
    ldm_validate_partition_tables(): Disk Read Failed
    ldm_validate_partition_tables(): Disk Read Failed


    It's strange because Mandrake works fine the first time I use it. Just after I restart it goes bad. I am new to linux so I don't know what to do. Windows still works fine ( or it was working fine untill 30 sec ago when I lost internet completly )

    But I boot through lilo to linux/xp.

    Durring boot up, I also see some stuff about modprobe, and insmod failing.


    Any Ideas ?

    It looks like it cant read your harddrives partition tables or file tables.

    And all the other stuff doesnt say much to me, but i think your install of Mandrake is corrupt.

    I seem to have gotten it working.


    I get those same errors, but it loads now for some reason.

    I just went back to my old Bios revision. But now my screen is messed up when i first log in , and i have to log out and back in to make the *glitch* go away.


    I am gonna try 9.0 instead of this beta to see how it works out.

    If you have a drive using raid... Turn it off when you boot into linux.

    Your partitons should be :

    /

    swap

    /home



    :cool:
