Hi,

I'm trying to install an CS1000E rls 7.5 linux base on a CP-PM (2gb of ram, s5 position 2).

I've made the boot rmd CF 2gb with the software, like the manual says.

When i started the boot with boot cf, it detected that the bios was old and it upgraded to the bios vr18.
Then I've made the reset defaults to the cmos.

After that when I'v pressed the F to boot again from the CF on the faceplate, it runs, but the screen to choose the Y to start de installation simply does not appear, only appears a black screen without any possible choise, and then after some minutes CP PM makes a reboot.

Could someone help me?

Best Regards,

TR

is this a fresh install with a new hard drive? if the hard drive was used youcan try piulling it off and wiping it so that when you start the install it will be prompting you to format the drive.

The hard drive is a used one, but it already have been formated on my first attempt to install linux.

I've tried to pull it out, but no luck.

It only appears this screen:


Pre-Installation Script started... Please wait...


PreInstall script started. mntDir=/tmp/cf ethif=eth1
