Can anyone provide some recommendations for Linux Boot Camps that are reputable?
Booting Linux on USB Hard Drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 29, 2004
I want a version of linux that can be booted from a USB Hard Drive. I do not want to play around with MBR or partion table of my notebook hard drive. What i want is if I insert a CDROM and restart my computer it should boot in linux and then my USB drive takes over from there and I should be able to take the CDROM drive out and still continue to work on Linux using only the USB hard drive. In case no cdrom and boot, windows should boot up.
Linux boot hangs on ACPI message
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 18, 2010
I have a laptop that came with an Ubuntu-derivative pre-installed. The laptop is 100% compatible with Ubuntu, all the LiveCDs since Gutsy worked out-of-the-box. Except for the last week, that the installed Karmic stopped to boot. I have tried to boot all the LiveCDs I have (gutsy 32bit, hardy 32bit, intrepid 32bit, jaunty 64bit and karmic 64bit), but none have worked. When I tried to boot from GRUB recovery mode, it displays a lot of messages and starts to hang. The last message is:
ACPI: Core revision 20090320
I did some research on ACPI, and found that I could disable ACPI but adding the following to the GRUB boot:
acpi=off noapic nolapic
After adding this argument, the boot now hangs with the following message and then the screens gets scrambled:
Boot video device
I have tried to boot another distro too, but it have the same behaviour. Then I tried the Windows XP installer I have, and it worked fine. This is not what I want, as I don't have a lice
linux boot.ini equivalent

I have a lot of different kernels showing up when in GRUB 2. How do I get it to stop showing me the ones I don't need? I have kernels dating back to around -15 or -16, but now I use 20... I see reason for having a few extra in case of issues, but not so many that my windows xp is almost not shown due to too many to display...
Recovering a broken linux boot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 5, 2008
My linux won't boot anymore, not even in safe mode, since I messed with the wireless ethernet settings. Boot hangs on an sbin/modprobe abnormal exit. Is there a way I can undo what I did by editing some boot-up file?
I'm running Mandriva 2008.1 on an Acer 5002WLMI with a Broadcom 4318 wireless chip. I've never gotten this wireless to work under Mandriva. It gave error messages on boot-up. Earlier this week, I used the Mandriva Linux Control Center to try the Windows Broadcom driver with ndiswrapper, and since then I can't boot anymore.
I can still boot from a variety of live linux CD's, so I'm thinking I should be able to comment out the offending line in some setup file, but I'm not sure where to look. Can someone give me a tip?

enabling linux boot logo
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 15, 2009
I want to enable the linux penguin logo at boot to have the good old boot console with tux displayed on the upper left corner. I have enabled all the kernel settings but the logo still does not appear :
- my boot line is as follows:
/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.27-11-custom root=UUID=223f95a8-2185-433e-a778-27c9b0d47bb6 ro vga=788 loglevel=7
in the kernel configuration I have the following paramters set:[*]boot logo:[*] Standard 16-color [*] Standard 224-color Linux[*] framebuffer console compiled in[*] CONFIG_FB_VESA
Still the logo does not show up. I am compiling the kernel with the debian package system.
I don't know if this the right forum to ask my question but i would appreciate if someone have some tips about this or point to another forum or documentation,
thank you all

Dual Boot Setup Booting Vista Changes Linux Boot Partition Type to Amoeba
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 3, 2007
I've got a dual boot configuration setup on my workstation. First hard drive holds Windows Vista, second hard drive holds OpenSUSE 10.2.
/dev/sda1 - Windows Vista NTFS Partition
/dev/sdb1 - Linux Boot Partition
/dev/sdb2 - Linux LVM Partition
GRUB is installed on the Linux Boot partition on /dev/sdb1 and the menu is configured so when the workstation boots, I can select to go to Windows or OpenSUSE.
As long as I never boot to Windows everything is fine. If however I boot into Windows Vista, the next time I restart the workstation I get the "GRUB Error 17" message and cannot boot to either OS.
I finally tracked the problem down and found the solution HERE.
Every time I boot to the Windows partition, it changes my linux boot partition type to "Amoeba" and I have no idea why. I can fix it by booting to a KNOPPIX CD and using the CFDISK utility to repair/re-typify the linux boot partitions filesystem. This is becoming a real pain though because ever
