Topic: Failure to boot - freezes at "io scheduler cfq registered"
I am using GParted Live CD version 0.3.4-10 on usb stick. I have no trouble booting this usb stick with a Dell M60 Precision laptop with the "(boot off External-usb-cd : /dev/sr0)" option. But when I boot from my new Fujitsu laptop the computer freezes at "io scheduler cfq registered".
The laptop has an Intel Core™ 2 Duo Processor T7500 (2.2 GHz, 4 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB) with NVIDIA GeForce 8400M video apapter at 1680x1050 resolution. (It also has a serial port and parallel port, if that info is needed)
I have also tried a version 0.3-9 CD with all options, and get the same result.
Although if I use the "HP laptop pci=conf2" option the machine boots OK, but there are no pci devices found. (lspci gives no output) Also I must use Forcevideo to get the x server working in this mode of booting.
Any help here would be appreciated.
