I don't know what happened a few days ago but my desktop wouldn't boot Pclos 2009, the final version before 2010. I'd been putting off the change as I didn't like Kde4 as much as Kde3. I booted with System Rescue and it all looked ok but still wouldn't boot so I bit the bullet and downloaded Minime 2010 with my netbook and copied it to a usb drive using Unetbootin. This evening I booted the desktop from the usb drive and installed Minime 2010.
Now when I try to boot the desktop, every so often it hangs part way through the boot. By hitting the enter button I can coax it to get a bit further until eventually it will boot and runs flawlessly. I'm not sure what's wrong. Has anyone had similar?
