Subject description: Live Disc
 

Query
Precise Puppy 5.4.3 (NON RETRO) Full install, single partition works well on

Toshiba Satellite Pro laptop
Intel® Celeron® 2.2GHz Processor
- 2 x 512 MB DDR RAM
- 80GB Hard Disk Drive
- DVD-ROM drive
- 14.1" TFT Display
3Com 3CRWE 154G72 wireless 11g PC card

BTW 5.4.3 Does not appear to suffer as readily from screen freezing as did Lucid Puppy 5.2.8.

All Good Smile

However can not get live DVD of 5.4.3 (Non Retro) to boot up on my desktop
HP dc7700p Ultraslim Desktop
Intel R core Duo 6300 @ 1.86 GHz
3 x 1 GB DDR RAM
LAN connection
DVD Writer

Hangs. BTW 5.2.8 works very well ( from USB Flash boot)

Any ideas. TKS

BTW, at first trials, 5.4.3 live DVD appears to boot up on Fujitsu Si 1520 and HP Amilo Pro V3405. Both of these laptops have 2 x 1 GB RAM

Thanks, Puppy Newishbie

Are you sure you configured your desktop's BIOS to boot to the drive containing your Precise Live CD

Maybe the CD got corrupted when burning the ISO. Or the ISO was corrupt. Either way when downloading the ISO, I would recommend to do a md5 check.

If the Live DVD was corrupt, why would it boot OK on the laptops, even full installing OK on the Toshiba?

please what is an MD5/

Thanks yet again?

Puppy sometimes has trouble booting off certain optical drives. Here is a workaround.

1. Put the three core Puppy files on a non-bootable flash drive - vmlinuz, initrd.gz and puppy_precise_5.4.3.sfs.

2. Boot off the CD with the flash drive plugged in. At the short initial pause, type
Code:
puppy pmedia=usbflash

This is saying I think that it can't find th 5.4.3 main .sfs file so it cant load it . The name is strange to me too
I am using 5.4.2 and the file is called "puppy_precise_5.4.2.sfs" so maybe you just made a typo with capitals in it ?

It must have that file to boot properly so you must check the DVD to see if it is there and if it is then something must be corrupted in the download or afterwards so download it again or try rcrsn51's suggestion.
