Reboot problem solved

Postby Gabriele » Sun May 27, 2007 16:55

Since I installed eCS 2.0 beta 4 on this Athlon64 X2 system (NVidia chipset), reboot stopped working: the pc hanged just before video BIOS with a blinking cursor. /R parameter did not help.
With version 2.22, problem is solved! And, I also appreciated a lot the .wpi install file! Please add to it also the doc files :-)

Thanks to all the developers for their great work!

Unfortunately, it only reboots sometimes for me. It seems like the longer the system has been running, the more likely it is to hang when I try to reboot. Sometimes I even get strange garbage from the video BIOS printed onscreen (ATI Radeon X800).

And I still have a problem with power-off or extended shutdown -- the drives are always dirty.

But I'll agree with that! It's come a long way! :)

In fact, still happens sometimes that it refuses to reboot. With previous ACPI it *always* failed to reboot. And yes, it happened also to me to see sometimes an aborted video Bios screen. By the way, I too have an Ati Radeon X800! But the reboot problem just appeared after eCS Beta4 installation...

I'll give a try to power off, as I usualy don't use it.


Bye

Hi Mike, I tested the extended shutdown (by XWorkplace) and I can confirm the disks are dirty at reboot. I tried selecting "Switch off using ACPI", "Switch off using APM" and with and without Switch off delay, but in any case I have check disk running at reboot.
