As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.
1 Q1: I followed all instructions but my system doesn't boot!?
3 A1: This is most likely because you are running ms-sys in a Linux environment
4 with a 2.6 kernel. The problem is that kernel 2.6 might report a geometry
5 incompatible with other operating systems. This makes gnu parted write
6 incompatible geometry information when formatting the partition. Ms-sys
7 has the switch -p which is supposed to fix the geometry information when
8 the formatting program has failed writing this correctly, but also ms-sys
9 will write the wrong information for the same reason. This is a known
10 problem described in the README which also contains a link to a detailed
11 description and a possible workaround for the problem.
