I'm new here. I'm not a newbie nor do I consider myself an advanced linux user. I have, however, installed at least a dozen linux distros on my system but here I am stumped.
I've followed the installation procedures for VL 7 gold. I'm using my usb external hard drive sdb1 for the installation with one partition mounted to "/" and also have a valid swap on sdb2. I've chosen grub to go on the main boot record on my internal hard drive sda. When I reboot, the vector linux splash screen hangs with the progress bar frozen. What other information can I give you? I was thinking my usb drive might be having trouble but perhaps others have experienced the same?
