Today I upgraded my system from a several-years-old pentium D to a
brand-new core i5. I've preserved my existing hard drives, although I
did make a backup.
After quite some fiddling, I managed to get it to boot up. I replaced
the standard 32 bit kernel by the pae version, and it took another
several attempts to get the system to boot.
I've got the splash screen disabled; when the system stopped booting the
last couple of lines were either about usb initialization or about
What could be causing these issues? Are there any packages I should
reconfigure or bios settings I should check?
Also, is there any hope of upgrading to 64-bit while saving me the
hassle of reconfiguring my installation from scratch, or should I just
do a clean installation anyway to get stuff stable again?
Thanks in advance,
