    Linux 7.2 Won't Boot

    I have installed Linux 7.2 on my Laptop Sony VAIO for learning purposes, but everytime I attempt to boot, the Laptop crashes, after the following message.

    "Code: Bad EIP value.
    > Kernel Panic, Aiee, Killing interrupt handler
    In interrupt handler - not syncing."


    Please, if you know something, tell me, as this drives me crazy. I have never managed to boot and See Linux.

    I had a whole book to go through and Learn Linux. I have no time for hip cups.


    Thanks in advance, if you understand what I mean.

    It would help if you posted the exact model of your laptop so you can search for issues specific to your laptop.

    You posted a pretty generic kernel error message. There is not enough information in your post for anyone to help you.

    You should really learn how to use a search engine. That is the best way to learn and figure out problems. I plopped "Sony VAIO laptop redhat linux 7.2" into Google Groups and this was the ninth result:

    See if that helps.
