I have justgot hold of a media player built to play background music in a store.

I think it has a problem with the Mini Psu, but that another issue.

My problem is I have put the HDD into another Pc and I am getting a message on Boot up, " Uncompressed Linux....Ok, Booting the Kernel.
Invalid Compressed format ( Err=2)

Can anyone shed any light on the emaning of this.

If i need to give you more idea on my componants then I will send detail.

noobie to all this and espaecially Linux

It means the compressed kernel image cannot be uncompressed correctly. It could be a corrupt hard drive, or even a memory problem.

Did it work with the original machine?

Well it until until one point at which the whole machine stopped, booting, I am trying to work out if the issue is the Hdd or the Psu.

so I thought swapping over to another PC may prove it , but wondered if the MB drivers need to be different for Linux ?

any advice would be greatfully received but if you need to know any spec's then come back to me.

Boot elsewhere, and then check that HDD is all working properly.
