Comodo Rescue DIsc Lockup while Booting !!

Postby crownstar » Thu Jul 26, 2012 12:02 am

I d/led Comodo Rescue Disc which utilizes SliTaz GNU/Linux for LIve CD
Everytime I reboot with CD in drive it boots up and goes through the process.

then it says something like : Switching to NoHz Mode
then ACPI Exception : AE_NOT_FOUND
then ACPI No dock devices found
then ACPI : PCI Interrupt Link
then complete Total LOCKUP with GREEN SCREEN :

vgaarb : device added PCI:0000:01:00.0,olddecodes=io+mem,decodes=none:owns=none

My system is :
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
Specification AMD Phenom(tm) 9850 Quad-Core Processor
HP LP2465 (1920x1200[at]59Hz)
2048MB GeForce GT 520 (XFX Pine Group)

Version 4.2.0
Vendor NVIDIA Corporation
Renderer GeForce GT 520/PCI/SSE2

possible video collision driver issue ?

As a wild guess, since I've never used Comodo, try adding noapic to the boot options. Ah, I've just had a look at the disc and they have disabled editing the boot options in isolinux so it looks like you're stuck.

I wouldn't put that much trust in a security product that can't even spell its own name correctly on the boot menu - "COMODO Resuce Disk" :shock:

use following menu.lst entries to make it work

First : Copy the entire contents of the cd to a folder on your USB flash drive
example : K:\iso\Comodo\

title Comodo Rescue Disk 1.1.232326.14
kernel /iso/comodo/boot/bzimage
initrd /iso/comodo/boot/rootfs.gz


Reply from COmodo Fourm to a possible solution to my problem.
Can you advise me on how to edit menu.lst:
