#7936 assigned bug

Won't boot on Toshiba Portege 3500

Reported by: TN-048 Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: System/Boot Loader/BIOS Version: R1/alpha3
Keywords: boot-failure Cc:

Platform: x86


I wrote an AnyBoot image to a USB (One that I know works, have booted on other computers with the same image) and use GRUB2 to load the Plop boot manager so that I can boot from USB. It displays the text "Loading system" and then proceeds to reset the system. I've tried many BIOS options all to no luck. If my description wasn't clear enough I took a video of it and put it up at (I wasn't sure if I should attach something like this to the ticket...).

I got the same problem with my pc here. I can't get to the boot menu, it reboots just right before the menu shows up with the same message. That happens also with using the USB and that usb works in the virtual machines, also i have no problems with booting from usb, the bios allows that and so far works perfectly with other bootloaders there.

Same thing happens when i'm trying to boot just the floppy disk, to test if the boot process will start and the menu will appears, even there the boot process fails before the boot menu appears too.

MB: SuperMicro P4SCT HDDS: WD Cavier Black 500GB Sata 2x Works in sata enchanced mode. RAM: 2x 1GB Integrated Ati rage xl (turned off) External AGP Video: GF MX440 128MB P.S. I tried to unplug the drives and disable sata mode to see if that causing the problem, still not working.

Replying to diver:

Also #7540.

I kinda doubt it because my toshiba has an IDE drive instead of a sata one. I did try to boot without the hard drive in and got the same results.
