    Default Cannot boot on IBM xseries 206m

    Hi All,

    I was searching the net to replace windows on my IBM xseries 206m and seems to me untangle is quite promising as I don't have many experience on Linux server.
    So, I downloaded the ISO, burned & installed it.
    After reboot, my machine won't response with following error:
    [ 0.159975] PCI : Not using MMCONFIG
    [ 0.196030] PCI : Cannot allocate resource region 7 of bridge 000:00:01.0
    ...
    ...
    Loading, please wait...
    Splashy ERROR : Timeout (120sec) occured while waiting for a message on the splashy socket.

    And it just stood there for hours... nothing happen...
    I have played around with other distrs such as clarkconnect and sme server.
    Both runs very smooth.

    Can somebody help?

    Thanks

    Hi

    Try editing the boot options.
    When the grub menu opens hit down arrow so it will not auto continue.

    Then go to the top alternitive.
    "Debian GNU/Linux, kernal 2.6.26-1-untangle-686" and hit "e"

    You should see 4 lines now.
    root:
    kernel:
    initrd:
    savedefault:

    go to the kernel line and hit "e"
    now you should see "quiet splash"
    Remove the "splash" with backspace and add "pci=nommconf" hit "Enter"
    now hit "B"

    It now will boot without the Splashy and nommconf support. But only for this boot.
    To remove nommconf support you need to edit the grub menu file.

    You can try Updating the BIOS as well.
    Good luck

    Thanks for reply...

    I did what you told me, it did boot and continue to setup wizard.

    But it never goes through "Network Cards" setup screen, because only one NIC installed.
    I guess I need to install another NIC
    In the mean time, I'll update the BIOS as well.

    Thanx
