I have just upgraded to a P4
2.5 and I do not seem to be able to install/run Linux anymore
During a fresh install the
system hangs when trying to uncompress the Kernel (no error
messages) and I cannot even boot off my existing 7.3 installation, the
system simply reboots straight after GRUB
For test purposes, I booted
Windows, loaded all the drivers and started stress testing the system, the
hardware seems to be fine, I ran it for many hours looping in various
I tried numerous BIOS settings,
adjusting the memory timings and speeds down, etc, fail safe defaults, BIOS

2 x 256MB
