Trialing Product - Cant Restore C: Drive

Post by claytow » Mon Mar 09, 2009 5:33 pm

Hi,

I am trialing the R-drive software and all went ok until I tried to do a C: Drive restore. With a normal boot disk made it ran but got stuck saying loading kernel, there it stopped and wouldnt go any further. I tried some of te troubleshooting tips and turned on "Display Kernel Startup messages" it then stopped at this point, can anyone give me an idea of what I need to do to the boot disk to make it work.

Any help welcome.

thanks

Most likely this is your network card causing the trouble.
Try to disable Plug and Play O/S in your computer BIOS

I have tried diabling the netwrk card from BIOS that didnt help. I did raise a support call but have heard nothing, so guess ill have to look for another product if noone can help me.
Motherboard is a DFI NF2 Ultra Infinity it has a PNP section in the BIOs but its only about automatically assigning IRQ's or not, nothing about turning PnP off at all.

Without pictures this is what sections I have in PnP/PCI Configurations

PnP/PCI Configurations
This section describes configuring the PCI bus system. It covers
some very technical items and it is strongly recommended that
only experienced users should make any changes to the default
settings.
3.1.6.1 Reset Configuration Data
Enabled The BIOS will reset the Extended System Configuration
Data (ESCD) once automatically. It will then recreate
a new set of configuration data.
Disabled The BIOS will not reset the configuration data.
3.1.6.2 Resources Controlled By
The Award Plug and Play BIOS has the capability to automatically
configure all of the boot and Plug and Play compatible devices.
Auto(ESCD) The system will automatically detect the settings
for you.
Manual Choose the specific IRQ in the “IRQ Resources”
field.
The settings on the screen are for reference only. Your version may not be identical
to this one.
75
3 BIOS Setup
3.1.6.4 PCI/VGA Palette Snoop
This field determines whether the MPEG ISA/VESA VGA cards
can work with PCI/VGA or not.
Enabled MPEG ISA/VESA VGA cards work with PCI/VGA.
Disabled MPEG ISA/VESA VGA cards does not work with PCI/
VGA.
3.1.6.5 PCI IRQ Assignment
By default, an IRQ is automatically assigned to the PCI devices
that are installed in the PCI slots. If a PCI device has not been
assigned an IRQ, you must manually assign an IRQ for the device.
During system boot-up, you will see “NA” for the device that
does not have an IRQ assigned.
3.1.6.3 IRQ Resources
Move the cursor to this field and press <Enter>. This field is used
to set each system interrupt to either Reserved or PCI Device.
The settings on the screen are for

Well, just as a last resort: Disable PCI BIOS on the Startup Media Troubleshooting Options panel.

I have the same problem.
Previous solution did not work.

Seems that

The PC has a cs8920 pnp but Linux driver is not pnp.

solution :

Either remove it from /etc/modules.autoload
or recompile the kernel without that driver selected.
