run it in debug-mode (selectable from within freeloader menu), and then you should see each module being loaded.... the last loaded module before hanging is most probably the one causing trouble. i had this with the floppy driver, on a notebook not having a floppy drive. in such cases deleting/renam...

CBS-menu läuft

hi folks! eigentlich nicht sooo besonders, aber mich hat es nach kurzem nachdenken dann doch überrascht: ich habe eine aktuelle SVN-version von ROS auf meinem notebook installiert, um zu sehen wie sich ROS inzwischen macht. grafisch schonmal sehr cool, mit möglichkeit zu eigenem desktop-hintergrund....

insert the CD into some other computer, reboot and see whether the booting from CD works there.... if it doesn't work on other PCs, the burning software probably missed the boot part...

ok, after fixing the loaders debug entry, it seems the problem is the floppy driver. it gets to initialising the floppy driver, and then freezes....
this _could_ be because my notebook doesn't have a floppy drive.

is this a known problem?

i already tried to do as described in the wiki, the problem is the manual installation of FreeLoader. i manualy made a freeldr.ini, and copied freeldr.sys to D:\ (the fat drive, as seen from windows). the problem: it seems that GRUB cannot read the partition.... and this is where i am stuck.... btw:...
