I have been using puppy 1.0.1 it worked fine until I got a cd r. I setup scsi emulation, it worked a few times now cd does not boot.
the last messages at boot up are
freeing /dev/ram0 memory DONE
puppy is now running in tmpfs ramdisk, mounted on / scsi subsystem driver revision 1.00

then it just hangs and does nothing.

I tried resetting bios,
I also removed backup battery for a few minutes
I tried booting with no hard disk
I tried booting with a different hard disk
I tried booting with a different cd
I downloaded puppy 1.0.4 and tried booting with this

no change in the results

Does anyone have any ideas what could be the problem?

Thanks

Very Happy

Do you mean you replaced your old CD drive with a new one? Did you mean you got a CD-RW, or a CD-R? What hardware and software did you use to burn 1.0.4? If you replaced your old CD drive, try putting the old one back in.

from what I've read I think the problem may be in the pupxxx file.

if you think so also, try renaming it and reboot again.

I burned with a liteon external cd rw using deepburner and win98, I have never had problems with this combination. This is the combination i used to create the older puppy cd and the newest puppy cd, There is no pupxxx file on the harddrive (I tried with a completely different hard drive. I tried with the original cd drive also. I am at a loss as to what may be happening. booting just stops with no error messages. win98 boots fine, DSL boots fine. BEATRIX boots fine. No error messages with any other program.

I am wondering if the memory on the pc may be bad

when I turn on the pc and go into setup i see that base memory is 640k extended is 126M

I dont know just a hunch ??

I just burned puppy-1.0.4-mozilla.iso booted, and got the exact same hang on the scsi,

I've got no scsi devices, everything is IDE. Can I comment out the scsi driver and then reburn the iso image somehow? BTW, I'm using a ReWritable drive and CD-R cds. Not that it matters, I don't think ... does it?

Here I go again. Burn the Puppy iso file at 2X if possible and see if ths works.

And your sure that you got a good download by checking the md5sum on the downloaded iso file?
