I tried to install Kalyway 10.5.2 on my Gericom Phantom G331, but it doesn't even boot up. It just shows a white, blinking _. After some time it starts into Windows from the HDD. What should I do? It starts from a boot132-CD, but what is to do then?

Make sure you are not trying to boot from a DVD-RW drive. Choose a plain DVD rom drive.

Weird , yes ...... took me a while to figure this out.

Also make sure you have burned the Installation DVD in the smallest possible speed in good brand DVD.

Give your DVD rom a lens clean with a Lens clean CD.

Hope this helps.


PS can you boot other CD-DVD's from your DVD-rom?
