All it does is stars
« on: October 18, 2010, 17:51:12 PM »
I installed it from booting the iso, and it froze when it reached the part that says to press any key to continue and I had to do a power-pull reboot.

At boot all it does is show a starfield screensaver, no response from the keyboard.

the stars are moving and you have no menu?

are you able to reboot from the install cd and use the option 5?

I don't know, I already restored it from a backup image.
Prior to doing so I was able to boot the windows partition from another LiveCD.
Could it have been due to the disk being a virtio device?

It would be nice for it to work with them.
There's a niche for a linux-less FOSS bootloader to apply boot delays to Windows guest VMs in KVM.
