Lenovo Ideapad 100 error
« on: September 25, 2023, 10:11:49 PM »
Hello, TC13 did not start successfully in Lenovo Ideapad 100.  Kernel and initrd are fully loaded in RAM but did not finish startup script.  Error is related to RcS.  (I don't have that computer now with me).  X graphics did not start, screen prompts me to push enter key and after this go to root command line.

Anyone can help?

Thank you.   :-)

Hi AlejandroPadrino
Maybe this can shed some light on the issue:

It sounds like an Asus T100 someone gave me to play with.
To make a bootable USB required a GPT partition and grub
as described here:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,22848.msg143377.html#msg143377
I had to replace  --target=x86_64-efi  with  --target=i386-efi  since
the T100 UEFI is 32 bit. I also had to boot a 64 bit kernel:

The kernel could not find the eMMC (amongst other hardware):

A 32 bit Buster ISO was able to boot:

Thank you very much.  In this case is DVD boot, not to install in GPT partition.  :-)

Best,
Alejandro.
