Try using the newer ad320 driver found at:
ftp://ftp.sco.com/pub/openserver5/507/drivers/ad320_1.1/
(also works for 5.0.6).

It would be helpful in posts like this to make note of the
equipment you're trying to install the OS on.

Also, search for "bootlocore" on this site and see whether
either of the two resulting articles apply to your situation.

Thanks Bob - I wish people would try search before posting, or if they have searched, say so and say why it didn't help..

Also, if possible, turn off video and BIOS shadowing and caching. Neither is of any benefit in the SCO environment once the kernel has been loaded and started and, in some cases, will prevent a successful installation when using BLTD's.

Check BIOS settings for a choice between 512KB and 640KB of low memory (exact wording varies in different BIOSes). If the setting exists, make sure it's set for 640KB.

If that doesn't help: boot the CD, enter:

Boot
: smallmem link=ad320

I'm not sure if "smallmem" is the right name. If it isn't recognized, use "ls" at the boot prompt. There are two or three kernels (files named "unix*") on the boot CD root directory. One of them is the small-memory kernel, might be "unix.smallmem" or "unix.notebook" or something like that. Whatever its name is, use that as the boot string, omitting the "unix." part (e.g. "notebook link=ad320").
