Thanks for your response.
Here are few details for my PC:
Pentium IV processor with 2.4Ghz. 1 GB RAM recently upgraded from 512 MB RAM.
40 GB Hard Disk divided into 4 partitions with 10 GB each. 3 partitions are formatted with NTFS File system and I am using these with Windows xp as Drive C, D and E.
I leave one partition for using any Linux OS because I want to try using it.
3 Optical Drives: DVD ROM, CD RW and DVD RW with DVD ROM acted as Primary Slaves Drive.
(Primary Master Drive: HDD, Primary Slave Drive: DVD ROM, Secondary Master Drive: CD RW, Secondary Slave Drive: DVD RW)
I partitioned my Hard Disk using "gparted" available with a Vector Linux Live CD.
I have tried some Linux Distros in my system so far. Some of them works fine and some other, don't.
- Linux Mint: OK
- OpenSuse 11.1: OK
- Vector Linux: Crash after Installation
- Damn Small Linux: The mouse pointer did not move as soon as it boot
- Fedora 10: Cannot boot
- Sabayon4: Cannot boot
- ubuntu: OK
- kubuntu: OK
I got this Granular from a Digit Magazine. I tried using it in my office and it is OK. I really like it and the features that are available with it so I want to try it at home.
The problem is like this:
I boot my system from CD. The splash screen show GRANULAR and all those options like Memtest, Copy2Ram, etc.
I select GRANULAR and press enter. Next screen show with progress bar. It load something to about 10% and stop forever.
Then I tried to use through Safeboot. It shows all those details which I cannot understand (I'm not a programmer, I told you). Then that screen come. The one which had the user option (to log on as root or guest etc.). I enter "root" and then the PC hanged. I have no option but to force Shutdown the PC.
Then I tried using TEXT (after pressing F3 twice), instead of that 1024×768 screen resolution. It, again shows those details and then it came to halt as soon at it shows something like "... loom image: /dev/hdd" I don't know what it mean so I have to, again force Shutdown the PC.
PLEASE HELP ME! BECAUSE I REALLY WANT TO USE GRANULAR AS IT HAVE THE FEATURES THAT I LIKE.
