Crash during boot (Hard disk problem maybe)

Asked by gerebrobi

My Hardy crashes during boot. I get only a minimal console. This is after upgrading from Gutsy to Hardy. I cannot use kernel or I can only use the old kernel This works. When I try to install a clean OS it crashes when tries to install my hard drive. I have a Western Digital 1600JS (WD 1600JS) 160GB.

Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at [WWW] if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see [WWW] .

Well I don't think is a bug per say but it defiantly is a problem for you... Lets bring this bug report over to the support team and we can go from there...

What kind of errors are you getting besides the minimal console itself?

Do you happen to have an ASUS motherboard?

Yes, I have an ASUS A8V-XE motherboard, Athlon 3200+ 64 bit(but i use 32 bit OS. The 64 bit version also didn't worked). When i start the hardy with the #17 kernel, i got only a minimal console called "(initramfs)". With the #14 kernel works perfectly.
