[ltp] Hang on boot...
Mon, 9 Jun 2014 13:52:35 +1200
Apart from the fact that I cannot boot from the battery, even though it is
a new one, my Thinkpad T60 has given good service until recently. Now,
booting is very spasmodic. Sometimes it boots without a problem and other
times it hangs on the initial distribution screen and refuses to complete
boot. And the gap is widening - more no boots than successful ones :-(
Today, to check whether it could be a fault in the distribution, I
downloaded v2.0 of LinuxLite and then burnt it to a DVD. I tried it in
two desktops, and installed it on one, without any problems.
However, when I try to boot from the DVD on the Thinkpad, it hangs on the
initial LinuxLite screen. I thought it might recover in time so left if
for an hour but it didn't go any further.
I have ensured that the boot order is DVDCDRom -> HDD.
Is anyone on the list able to suggest any tests I can carry out to
determine what could be wrong, please?
