I'm trying to get PEM up to use ddrescue on a drive, and no matter which of its boot options I select, it hangs during boot.

Sometimes, it's just after "Installing packages...", with no indications of actual package installation; sometimes, it shows me that it's installing the 6 or 7 packages that generally show up there (complaining all the while that they weren't made with makepkg :-), and then hangs right after that.

When I run the boot in verbose mode, it seems to be successfully getting by it's addressing of the troublesome HDD, so I don't think that's the issue.

New Core2Duo E7500 on a new Gigabyte G41M mobo, 2GB RAM, 40/1000/1000 GB Seagates on SATA; one of the 1T's is the problem drive.

Any suggestions as to what might make PEM not want to boot?

Can ddrescue be accessed any other way on 5.0.1?

My apologies; I read the label (which I didn't write), instead of the menu designation.
