I installed XP Pro on my HP notebook and then I did a fresh install of Fedora Core 2.
Only thing I did after I installed FC2 was change my screen resolution to unprobed LCD monitor 1024x768
I also edited the /boot/grub.grub.conf menu to change "other" to read "Windows XP" and it had 2 boot options for Fedora Core 2
#1 = 2.6 SMP kernel
#2 = 2.6 kernel
so I removed the 2nd option and just left the 2.6 SMP kernel since I am using the Hyper Threading CPU and will use the SMP kernel.
Now when I boot in to the Linux option from Grub, I see the details list and then right before the login screen, nothing but pure black and it just hangs on a black screen
Any suggestions? I am thinking about reinstalling this linux partition but not sure if that will do any good.
The only thing unusual during boot up is this message...
ACPI: S3 & PAE do not like each other for now, S3 disabled
