Have you tried any other OS's on your PC?

If so did they boot ok?

If they didn't you might have a hardware problem.

A few more details on your hardware would be helpful.

Is it a laptop or a desktop PC?
What kind of video card do you have?

I have never had a problem with puppy booting unless there
was a hardware problem.

I hope this helps.

that's what they all say...I agree puppy is very interesting and anyone with XP or vista should download it NOW because as soon as they attempt to install a program that will offer some usefullness it will make it fall apart and they will benifit greatly by haveing a full desktop immidiately...my guess is no one is foolish enough to attemp running it on 100 mhz and 128 meg ram or they would have some helpfull information on making it function....I have no problem looking at the desktop icons it is clicking one that makes it less than useful..ON THIS BOX...there is nothing wrong with the computer, there is nothing wrong with the hardware..it is simply not fast enough at pentium100 mhz with 128 meg ram and 52x cdrom.. to run the puppy..I DO LIKE PUPPY and great work... VERY INTERESTING..it just is not working on my current project box...I think I will attempt a thumb install on the vista machine but that can wait as I am wanting to install a functional linux to this p100...just cause ..

Why not take pup 2.13 for a live cd spin on your Vista machine? I'm doing this on ~6 windows xp computers. Hardly use windows anymore..

LoL..why would I suggest vista and xp users give it a download if I did not know it would serve a purpose..The point is if you have 128megs of ram the live cd will not run on 100mhz...I am looking for a linux that will..why would anyone who just got vista be playing with puppy unless vista crashed attempting to install a usefull program...they would be playing with vista..I use dsl on a thumb over xp as I refuse to connect xp to the net...thought I would try puppy on a thumb over vista but right now I want to get a linux for this p100...puppy does not function as the programs are to heavy..I am not sure if there is means of alteration and do not want to mess with it until I am convinced it is worth the effort...dsl installed to my DX2-66mhz with X but offered less functionality so I put it on a pent1 with 48meg ram and a swap file and added programs that work...ie xmms and xmms alarm plays mp3 and will wake me up in the morning, gqview will allow me to plug the digi in and view a slide show of pics and set one as wallpaper, xcalc works, jpilot works, opera works, sylpheed works, blablabla..but the live cd gave me reason to play..because some stuff worked and I got good support from the forum..maby I need to be more specific..why do I need to ide=nodma and can I turm dma on after it's running...binderdundat no response
I already have dsl on an old box and a thumb that plays movies..
.I'm lookin at puppy..guess the idea is like it or leave it and if I do not have a new computer I should get one...I do not get it...got several...but want to play with linux on a pent100 with functionality...there are far to many going into the trash for no good reason there is nothing wrong with them they just need an operating system...win95/98 work fine but the MS police are always on the look out so linux is the alternative. YAYA who put a quarter in me..maby feather works.

I guess about the slowest PC I ever loaded Puppy on was a laptop
with 150mhz processor, 128mb of ram, and 4gb hard drive.
Although the first time I booted it, it only had 48mb of ram.

A lot of times when I tried to install puppy, my boot errors were caused
by the CD ROM drive. Even though it seemed ok in windows or DOS.
I would swap the drive for another one, and Puppy would boot fine.

A lot of times windows hardware installers put the hard drive on the
second IDE controller, puppy doesn't seem to like that.

You might do a ram check with a good program. Windows and dos
doesn't show flaws in ram like puppy does,(windows waits until you
are right in the middle of something important first), puppy shows the
memory flaw right away. I use puppy to test systems hardware, on crashed
windows PC's.
Try re-seating the video card (if its not built into the motherboard) I have
found this to help on older PC's.

I load puppy on PC's for people all the time (including dual boots).
A lot of older folks love puppy (mainly for ease of use and the price is right
FREE of course)

I still recommend the puppy-2.13-seamonkey-fulldrivers
FULLDRIVERS is the key word here.

Please just try a few of the items I mentioned, I bet they will help.

I hope this helps.

I'd say it's possible it may not work with that hardware b/c of its speed. I use Puppy on my slow machines. The slowest one I have it on now is a Pentium CPU @ 200Mhz and 64MB RAM. It runs decently except mp3 playback can be choppy if I do other things at the same time. I am looking to upgrade the RAM in it anyways, unfortunately the max it'll take is 128MB.

For your machine, I'd recommend going CLI. I don't know if there are any Linux based GUIs that will run on that one.

Point I was trying to make is that it's practically impossible to wreck vista (or anything) by trying out puppy 2.13 live cd. You just have to be sure when shutting down that you chose NOT to save anything.

Even if a mistake is made there (& I've done a lot worse..) the risk to xp or anything, Imo, is slim to none by trying out live cd on any machine.

It 's very functional & even allows surfing the net without touching windows, or any other operating system, that may already be loaded on a computer.

I'm running pup 2.13 live cd on ~ 6 machines that already have win xp.

I haven't come across any other operating systems, (not that I've tried that many..) that is as fast (none as far as that goes) & easy as puppy; not to mention just plain fun Very Happy
