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 or download 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.
