    Default Won't boot past this point (Picture included)

    I recently tried to install Untangle OS onto a computer I wanted to turn into a router, Installation went fine no issues.. But it will not boot past this point. It's an Intel Pentium 4, 1GB DDR2, 80gb SATA... I think it's a Dell optiplex. 320 series.

    Here is where it gets stuck:





    Any ideas? I'm using the integrated video if that helps... It does have a free PCI-E slot if I need to install a card (Should that be the issue)

    Video could well be the issue - go into the bios, and configure for 8mb shared video ram

    Or try other things like these:

    The Dell Optiplex 320 has a well known defective mainboard, the capacitors on it love to corrode and fail. Given the age of the line, I'd be surprised if the thing isn't just flat busted. But, assuming your board is OK, the situation you find yourself in is likely due to a lack of RAM. Untangle needs 1gb just to operate, and you're sharing a portion of your 1gb with your onboard video.

    It did this even when I had 2GB of RAM in it. The system is in mint condition, It has very low hours and upon inspection it doesn't look like it has bad caps.
