  1. Sorry... Virtualbox run under linux, and winXP in a virtual machine . The virtual machine configuration need a WinXP iso image . Actually my XP is in its " C" partition (or disk...) .
  2. To configure a Windows virtual machine for Virtualbox an iso file image is needed . How can I build an iso from my Windows ? Thanks. [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  3. ...instead of on MBR is an installation option . But how can be done a boot when bios read on the first track of the first disk ? Thanks a lot.
  4. I've called my ISP for DNS numbers ...and thjis has solved.. I've never had this problem....shouldn't DHP do it automatically ? About your test , I'm not sure to get it .....do you mean this >>> [root@localhost lando]# dig @ linux.org bash: dig: command not found
  5. Sorry , I don't understand...may you give me more deatails ? Thanks a lot.
  6. I've installed MDV One on HD after many problems... Now it works but the internet connections are very slow ( download speed are normal ,fine..) . I 've an Adsl ethernet line . A normal modem ( not a router...) . I 've done the adsl-setup installation procedure then I do pppoe-start to start ppp . Below some informations >>> [root@localhost lando]# ifconfig eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1B:FC:B5:54:F4 inet6 addr: fe80::21b:fcff:feb5:54f4/64 Scope:Link UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:5092 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:3965 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 RX bytes:6514890 (6.2 MiB) TX bytes:529346 (516.9 KiB) Base address:0xc000 Memory:f9ec0000-f9ee0000 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr: Mask: inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:6 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:6 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:588 (588.0 B) TX bytes:588 (588.0 B) ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol inet addr: P-t-P: Mask: UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST MTU:1492 Metric:1 RX packets:4977 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:3827 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:3 RX bytes:6376854 (6.0 MiB) TX bytes:417444 (407.6 KiB) [root@localhost lando]# cat /etc/resolv.conf # Dynamic resolv.conf(5) file for glibc resolver(3) generated by resolvconf(8) # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE BY HAND -- YOUR CHANGES WILL BE OVERWRITTEN nameserver nameserver # ppp temp entry nameserver # ppp temp entry nameserver # ppp temp entry nameserver # ppp temp entry [root@localhost lando]# route Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface * UH 0 0 0 ppp0 default * U 0 0 0 ppp0
  7. Below the menu.lst where I 've added " noapic nolapic pci=noacpi " to see if MDV 2008 can boot ! I've added these boot parameters using MDV One live but now I have to record the bootloader in MBR....I think to do a chroot to the / then with Grub command ( that I cannot understand what it is...) write on MBR the loader... With lilo was used this procedure....Can I do it with grub ? Thanks a lot. timeout 10 color black/cyan yellow/cyan gfxmenu (hd0,5)/gfxmenu default 0 title linux kernel (hd0,5)/vmlinuz BOOT_IMAGE=linux root=/dev/sda8 resume=/dev/sda7 splash=silent noapic nolapic pci=noacpi vga=788 initrd (hd0,5)/initrd.img title linux-nonfb kernel (hd0,5)/vmlinuz BOOT_IMAGE=linux-nonfb root=/dev/sda8 resume=/dev/sda7 acpi=ht initrd (hd0,5)/initrd.img title failsafe kernel (hd0,5)/vmlinuz BOOT_IMAGE=failsafe root=/dev/sda8 failsafe initrd (hd0,5)/initrd.img title windows root (hd0,0) makeactive chainloader +1
  8. I've written a map.lst , now to write a bootloader in MBR what have I to do ? What is the command to do it ? Thanks. [moved from Installing Mandriva by spinynorman]
  9. Do you detail how can be done ? I don 't know grub command prompt .I see F6 that show boot options but I cannot add these options....... Many thanks
  10. I cannot install MDV 2008 ! DVD , 3 CD , MDV one ...none can install MDV on HD ! Only MDV one Live works ! It seems a bootloader problem , many kernel module fails because of EIP (0000000) . Then boot stops as I 've written before. What can I do ? :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: :wall: Many thanks.
  11. ...doesn't boot ! I've reinstalled it two times without success ! It stops boot , the log shows " Hal demon failed to start " "Alsa is executing " " mixer settings are OK " ...now the cursor is blinking.... and the boot stops... MDV ONE works..... What could be ? I've not done an .iso file checksum ....now how can I do these checks on the CD ( I've no more files on hD ) ? Thanks a lot.
  12. Thanks a lot. > It will restore/repair the MBR of windows up to XP, but not Vista,..... Is it in working MBR repair for Vista ? >Windows: >* Fix Boot of Windows >* Boot Windows >* Boot Windows on a second hard disk >* Boot Windows on a second partition Does it boot also on a USB external HD ? ( ...also for Linux...) Thanks in advance .
  13. IN >> http://users.bigpond.net.au/hermanzone/Sup...Super_Grub_Disk THESE INSTRUCTIONS >>>>> """" Select the appropriate Super Grub Menu option Super Grub Disk's English Menu has four options plus the Quit menu. The first two options are for those who like things quick and easy, Gnu/Linux is for computers with a single hard disk and just one or two operating systems when you want to boot Linux or install your Linux's GRUB boot loader to MBR. Windows is for computers with a single hard disk and just one or two operating systems when you want to boot Windows, or install your Windows's NTLDR boot loader to MBR."""" What do they mean ? ...that if I ' d stop MDV 2008 installation without doing the "bootloader step" .......I could boot MDV using SuperGrubDisk ? It would be fine !
  14. Thanks , I 've no more a floppy on my new PC , but only a CD . May be this the problem ? cannot they record on a CD ?
  15. I 'll install MDV 2008. I'm told that Lilo is dead ...and Grub is to be used . I don't know Grub .... Can bootloader be recorded on CD ? Where is a Grub tutorial easy and complete (with samples ) ? Thanks a lot.
