Question about IBM POWER SUPPLY 8565/80 64F3693 Power Supply
I'm trying to install debian on an old IBM PC 350. The installation kept failing several times, so i took the hard drive put it in a different computer and installed it without a problem, stuck the hard drive back in the PC 350 and it starts up, gets past the grub loader and starts to load debian, then restarts.
You might try running one of the live cd distributions to see if the machine hardware is supported that way. You do need a minimum of 128 MB of ram, might be 192 for a live system. It could just be that the system doesn't have enough ram to run Debian, that would explain why it wouldn't finish installation, and why it fails to load now. Check the readme and release notes for minimum system requirements. Maybe you would do better with a leaner distro like DSL?
