After pressing "Forward" from the "Keyboard Layout" screen I see the "Starting up the Partioner" message box which seems to complete OK. Then a few seconds later I get the attached Message Box.[img]file:///G:/question.jpg[/img]. After OKing this box nothing else happens. If I press forward again the system just waits.
I thought message boxes like this were confined to Microsoft products!!!!!
Sorry - I'm having problems showing the image. Basically it is a "No Entry" icon with all the text being ?????? (question marks). I can post the JPEG if anyone is interested.
pete515, I too have the NVIDIA GeForce 6150 like you and also a similar problem with trying to install Elyssa.
After a couple of attempts i re burnt the cd this time i used K3b to burn it and used the lowest speed it offered. Once done all went well and i am now running Elyssa with no problems. Nvidia installed a breeze. I would try burning the disc again at the lowest speed you can, best wishes
