The resources section might contain too much Windows XP stuff, but a lot of people dual-boot.
Booting Linux live CDs
- "Linux boot CDs do not boot anymore; the system falls back to a GRUB shell instead. So far, the proposed solution is to temporarily disable AHCI before booting the CD."
Can't confirm that this happens with my system. I can recreate the problem when attempting to boot a USB img, and it occurs because the BIOS boots USB drives as HDD emulation by default. Maybe this is what the author meant; live USB Linux images instead of CD ones? pwd 02:48, 19 December 2009 (EST)
