Error 0x10 on Slackware Floppy boot?? Help

Post by Rob Schoenin » Wed, 09 Apr 1997 04:00:00

I am trying to install Slackware 3.1 and when I boot the floppy, at the
point where it says to press return, it comes back with an 0x10 error (very
helpful).  Is this some problem with the floppy?  I've tried several
different floppies to no avail.  

Please help.



1. Original boot floppy: error 0x10

I just got the 1.2 meg "bare" file for Slackware 2.2.0.  I used
rawrite to build a 5 1/4 inch floppy boot disk.  After I get the boot:
prompt, I press enter, and after accessing the diskette a moment, it
comes back and says: Error 0x10, then prompts me with: Boot: ramdisk.

I get the same error with the other two images on the disk.  One is
mount, (the command I tried is: mount root=/dev/fd0).

I'm running on a 386 with 8 meg.  I got the boot image file as well as
the gzip and rawrite utilities from
