I have a Toshiba Lifebook P1120 (800.0 MHz CPU - 256.0 MB RAM) that I am trying to install ArchLinux on.
It doesn't have a CD/DVD drive (you need an external) and it cannot boot from a USB stick. So, I have to install over PXE. I've setup ArchBoot (see here for that) and got that going just fine.
The problem is that it hangs on "Unpacking initramfs..." for a good 30 to 40 minutes, then the screen goes blank and I can't interact at all.
I've tried with both the latest and the previous version of ArchBoot and with both i686 and Dual architecture.
Can anyone help? I love Arch, I'd hate to have to resort to installing another distro on this little laptop.
