It does not sound like it is booting. I am consistently getting this error message and only this message. After a minute or so, I just get a blue screen. Funny thing is that the mouse tracks across the screen! I have swapped monitors, graphics cards, cables, mouse, keyboard; but all no change.
Using a Knoppix disk to boot from CD drive, am able to access files; but I don't know what else to do to get my system back to operation. I note that in using Knoppix (v. 3.6 - I think), the Y and Z keys are switched on the keyboard? Is this a function of my machine, or just a transliteration error from original Knoppix language?
Any suggestion on what to do to get my system back into service.
