Title: Gigabyte q77m-d2h problem
Post by: tinyme on March 25, 2013, 04:11:40 AM
Dear all,

We are testing some motherboards with q77 chipset in order to write a program to make use of intel amt.

The tested motherboards at the moment are:

intel dq77mk i5 2400
asrock q77m vpro with an i5 3470
gigabyte q77m-d2h with an i5 3470.

The first 2 work with tinycore and microcore (one of the only distro's usable as a live cd for us => thx for that). The 3rd one stays stuck at booting the kernel. (kernel doesn't boot)
Any suggestions for this?

The version used is coreplus 4.7.1.

it would help to see the last few messages before it hangs (without the "quiet" bootcode).

Hi Juanito,

Where can I see this in a remastered iso if the quiet bootcode is set or not? Also remastered isofiles don't get further then the booting kernel message.

thx

Why use a remastered iso to troubleshoot a non booting kernel?

You couldn't get far debugging boot issues without a bootloader prompt.

So how to boot without the quiet bootoption (sorry if this is a stupid question)
I'm not that long into tinycore.

I couldn't test this now, but the bootloader menu has an option to edit the boot prompt, e.g. delete the "quiet" option.
