I’ve got an old PC that can boot some Linux live images but not others. I want to install NixOS on it. It’s a p6540f.
When I try to boot NixOS (both graphical and minimal), I can navigate the boot selection menu.
Per peterhoeg’s suggestion, I have tried all four options (
debug) result in the following two messages:
followed by blackness and then a reboot.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a list of Linux live images I can boot and live images I can’t boot to see if I can find something in common between the images that don’t support this machine.
In the mean time, is there any way I can log the boot process to determine where it failed?
