Ploplunux not starting
« on: June 07, 2010, 01:28:24 AM »
Hi,
I am new to linux and have this problem with booting plop.
I have a laptop with no CD and also BIOS does not support USB boot. I am trying to setup plop to be able to netboot this laptop.
The booting of plop freezes and the last line in output is emc: device handler registred.
I also tried to netboot one Virtual Machine with same setup and everything went smooth. So i am guessing the problem is with laptop hardware.
can you please help me with that.
Thanks

Elmar
