Quote from: MattC on January 25, 2021, 07:19:53 PMHi. Not sure if this is the best place to ask this.I've been trying to install an OS on an older computer and what ever I do, whether through installed or live, when I come to close down the computer, the system shuts off but the computer stays on. After that, I cannot turn it on or off with the power button - even with a hard shutdown. The only way to restart is to turn the power switch off at the back (or remove the power), turn on and then restart.Any suggestions?Matt
Quote from: MattC on February 07, 2021, 06:36:55 AMAt one point I was using live CDs of Hiren's Recovery Boot CD and at least two other Linux distros - this, without having a HDD attached at all, in order to see if it was the HDD that was causing the problem. So, the answer is really that I had, at one time, no installed OS on the computer. The original OS, I believe, was Win XP. (I booted Hiren's (x86) up with both the Mini XP and the Linux recovery. Neither solved the problem.)
