installed as it ought to be
is interpreted that you installed and
that the boot process after an install is the problem.

I note that you posted on another thread about USB install.
If that is the case and you are trying to boot using the USB fkash drive
that is another problem. The BIOS I note on your screenshot is
more than likely too old to boot directly from a USB device.

can you make a screenshot of that, not to waste your time, cos during install, it does not offer me things like that, it just offers me boot directory like sda, sda1,sdb...

You have not answered Bigpaws' question.  Try selecting mbr for the boot directory during install.

I have choosen the same hard drive I installed to vl. i.e. install for sda1 and boot for sda.
In you tube even videos confirm like that.

Also when I try from live cd then enter, after there, i try to open lilo, but there is a mess. vmlinuz could not be found smth like that.

It appears that lilo (Boot loader) did not install properly.

What did you choose for the place for the boot directory

that is what happens,  installed as it ought to be, even checked with a few youtube videos manual, everything like I did. Install on partition sda1 and lillo on sda. I can boot this hardrive install only inserting live cd and selecting before the last point- boot vl from sda installed. I can enter in such way, but after off and on, again it stucks. Before lilo install there was a mess. if there will be problem with lilo boot, you can edit manually boot. so can anyone tell what to edit to make it not stuck at boot?

Linux mint any version works, so computer is not low Cheesy

i come across a neat little app called "lshw" so i packaged it up for 7.1
 ive run it on my machines and the amount of detailed info it gives is pretty awesome
its currently in the 7.1 untested repos.

lshw (Hardware Lister) is a small tool to provide detailed information on the hardware configuration of the machine. It can report exact memory configuration, firmware version, mainboard configuration, CPU version and speed, cache configuration, bus speed, etc. on DMI-capable x86 or EFI (IA-64) systems and on some PowerPC machines

use xboot 14 beta, it does in 2 min. but then, as here somewhere seen,  you need to open usb drive and open the image of vector linux with winrar and then copt vector linux folder to your usb drive, so that you shall have image and folder, then install, if does not work with 1 point, use 2 point - mount hard drive partition.

In your other post you mention VL7.0 Light, so that's what I'll assume.

Abiword is found in this repository:
direct link:

After installing it, run command "abiword" in a terminal and see if it runs.
If not, you might need additional packages, like goffice. Here is the list of requirements:
