Hi aaa801
I guess I'll ask the obvious question first, are you running 64bit hardware?
In order for someone to help, you really need to supply more information.
Which version of Tinycore. What kind of processor? How much RAM? Are you using any boot codes? etc.
Although it wasn't resolved, it sounds like it's the same problem this individual had:

i think this was down to me using the wrong 64bit kernel

I tryed the same steps on the 4.# iso and it got me to the console, still could do with a gui :D

processor fx8150
ram 12gb

You need Xorg when using a 64-bit kernel.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

What steps? You also don't state which ISO you used, Core, CorePlus, or Tinycore. Core is for console,
Tinycore is for GUI, and CorePlus will let you install console or GUI plus it offers wireless support.
I don't run 64bit hardware myself, but I think what you need to do is boot one of the ISOs that have
a GUI and do a 32bit install:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/release/
Then replace the core and vmlinuz files with their 64bit versions and reboot:
http://distro.ibiblio.org/tinycorelinux/4.x/x86/release/distribution_files/
You might also want to use the forums search page for more information on 64bit installs.
