redhat linux 7.1

by Michael L. Kucheravy / September 29, 2012 4:42 PM PDT

Hi everyone,
I have just installed a copy of RedHat Linux on my hard drive and I am getting an hda: lost interrupt when I boot it up. What should I do?
Should I try to get the hard drive checked out to see if it is the hard drive or should I format the drive and trash it?

I'd do nothing. That version is over 10 years old.

I doubt you will find a cure.

Why did you pick such an old version?

Install a different Linux

You need a different Linux distribution - this isn't Windows where you can run a ten-year-old version, with Linux you need a fairly recent version at all times. Ideally the latest version of whatever distribution you want to run.

If I were you I'd check out and look at some of the Linux distributions in the top ten. I use Ubuntu as a good-all-rounder choice, but there's a lot of others you can try too.
