I'm trying to run Slackware but it stucks to keyboard selection.
It boots up to keyboard selection. It identyfies as Slackware64 15.
Linux Kernel 4.19.72. Booted from USB (usbboot.img). Also tryed 14.2 but
makes same. Also tryed huge and kms kernels. My hardware is Fujitsu Li-
feBook E744 i7-4702MQ with 12 GB of memory and 500 GB of Samsung SSD EVO
850. Is there some way to get working or should I use something else ??
Is your problem similar to mine described here
(beware multiple-line url)...
The box is an older VivoPC VM62N-G050R. And I'd already successfully
installed slackware, dual-booting with the pre-installed Win8.1.
And everything was running fine until a few days ago.
Then the hard drive worked loose from its sata connector. So I reseated
the disk. But when I rebooted, Win8.1 came up, despite slackware having
been set as first in the uefi boot order. Rebooting and going into the bios
showed no more slackware. It had disappeared and nothing I tried could
recover it. So I decided to reinstall, and the usb install stick seemed
to be booting fine. But then it printed the keyboard map select message,
and then just hung. That happened several times, with several different
slackware install usb sticks. [more info at above url]
