Hi. I've recently installed Vector 5.9 Standard and 5.9 SOHO, and in both cases the LILO installation failed giving this error message;
Warning: Unable to determine video adapter in use in the present system.
Warning: Video adapter does not support VESA BIOS extensions needed for
display of 256 colors. Boot loader will fall back to TEXT only operation.
Warning: Device 0x0800: Inconsistent partition table, 1st entry
CHS address in PT: 0:1:0 --> LBA (61)
LBA address in PT: 32 --> CHS (0:0:33)
Fatal: Either FIX-TABLE or IGNORE-TABLE must be specified
If not sure, first try IGNORE-TABLE (-P ignore)
which seems unfixable; I've tried all I know. In the event I installed GRUB from a live Puppy disk I happened to have around, which solved the problem, but all the same I'd be interested to know what can be done to fix this.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
BTW, is there a reason why LILO is preferred to GRUB as Vector's default boot manager? From what I've seen of it, GRUB seems to be better; for example, you don't need to rerun the program each time you change the boot menu, as you do in LILO.
