Same difference, first boot into the OS after encrypting and making all files read only.
I guess there might be an underlying hardware issue, but without a (semi) working system it would be nay impossible to diagnose.

Ok, is it possible you've run an i386 CD upgrade on a 64 bit system ??

Ok, so following Mark's suggestions of disabling onboard LAN, and running only the CD drive, it still yields the same results.

That being, computer will start up, as soon as it goes to probe the hardware, I get a kernel panic.

Sorry for bumping an old thread btw, I've only just got back around to this issue. Seems the HDD's live to see another day (thank god!)

and you've disabled/removed ALL non necessary hardware ?

such as audio cards, USB controllers (in BIOS), modems, etc ?

Yep, everything was removed apart from the CD drive, the ram, CPU and PSU.

Well if it aint the memory (test it in mem86+) and this kernel has booted before, and it aint a BIOS setting .. then sommat's broken.

Not sure if this is any help, but I once had a similar issue where the PC would suddenly switch off and restart or get half way through booting and switch off, I don't remember if it panicked but I spoke to a friend of mine who is an IT technition about it and right away he told me to have a look a the small capacitors on the motherboard and if the top of any of them looked like they were bursting outwards then that would most likely be my problem as it turned out he was right , apparently this was a common fault with Intel boards of a certain vintage.

Anyway might be worth having a look


Good luck

Give yourself a pat on the back.

I just checked the caps. a few of them around the CPU and chipset are bursting outwards.


What did you do? Get a new mobo or what?

I just scrapped the motherboard, I'm dangerous with a soldering bolt  :)

Looks like I'd best invest in a new, used pc/server then. Unless any of you guys have any idea how I could mount an EXT4 drive on a Win7 lappy?

I have an old lappy here, that's sitting about doing nothing, I could turn that into a temp server, if I could get it to read EXT4 because Windows obviously doesn't read it natively...

Can't you just install Linux alongside your existing Windows partition and use that to mount your EXT4 drive ?

Infact that reminds me, I have an old version of Ubuntu on that lappy... I just need to grab a HDD caddy then, since I've got a 1TB sata drive here. Anyone know if those IDE/SATA > USB 2.0 cables actually work on Ubuntu 11.xx?

If you are just after a temporary solution then this might do the trick (I have been using for a while)

Perfect SeZo! Ordered that, and a HDD dock so I can transfer all the stuff from the server HDD's to the new 1TB HDD.

Thanks again gents!
