Description Milan Kerslager 1999-04-27 21:00:14 UTC
Current \dosutils\autoboot.bat looks like this: loadlin autoboot\vmlinuz initrd=..\misc\src\trees\initrd.img This sould be initrd=autoboot\initrd.img Anyway file ..\misc\src\trees\initrd.img does not exist. In directory ..\misc\src\trees you now have only files initrd-local.img and initrd-network.img.

*** Bug 3257 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** On installing after booting off the CDROM, I had found that the AUTOBOOT.BAT INITRD.IMG is pointing to the wrong directory. The directory it should be pointing to is as follows: X:\DOSUTILS\AUTOBOOT\INITRD.IMG. (X being the cdrom drive letter). Entering this at the root seems to run correctly. ------- Additional Comments From email@example.com 06/19/99 14:56 ------- *** Bug 3584 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** Trying to start up manually from DOS, I invoked the AUTOBOOT script from the \DOSTOOLS directory, and LOADLIN failed to find the appropriate kernel and ramdisk image. Looking around, I found apparently the only kernel and ramdisk image on the CD, but they were in different directories than the batch file was referencing. Manually running loadlin with the different paths allowed me to boot and install normally.
