View Full Version : Impossible to boot with mbr or from partition

Knoppix 3.4 runs correctly by launching knoppix26 testcd.
When I have finished the setup on the hard drive with the downloaded "knoppix-inst.sh", I can't boot with lilo (option mbr) neither with the floppy
(option partition). Only the windows boot menu is displayed.
I succeded to force the launch of linux with another Boot Manager, but I get a kernel panic.
I have the same kind of problem with Fedora.
The partitions table looks inconsistent (PartitionMagic).
How to fix it ?

Here are the error messages I get at the setup after the launch of QTParted :


Error: The partition table on /dev/hda is inconsistent
mount: /dev/hdb8 n'est pas un périphérique valide de type bloc
mount: /dev/hdb9 n'est pas un périphérique valide de type bloc
