Installation hangs... solved

Postby Cariboo1938 on Sun Jan 13, 2008 10:31 pm

Hello Mint Community...I'm having a problem...
I'm running Ubuntu 7.10-amd64 on my computer and I wanted to install LinuxMint4.0 for compare and test purposes. I downloaded the .iso file from the Internet and burnt the image to a Live CD.
The installation, on a so far unused partition on my hard drive, started well and close to the end it hung at the "Detecting the Hardware" step.
I had to use the "Reset" button to get out of the dead lock.
This is the Hardware I use:
CPU: AMD Athlon 64,
RAM: Samsung-184 1GB;
MB: GigaByte GA-K8NS Ultra-939;
HDD: Maxtor 120+80 GB SATA;
GPU: MSI nVidia GeForce FX5200 AGP8X;
MON: LG Flatron T710BH;
PS: Enermax 375W
Is the processor AMD64 the problem???
Greetings

If you've come that far I don't think there's a problem with the hardware (if it's not broken)
375 W PSU is a bit thin though...
Did you check the md5sum of the ISO and burn slowly. It could be a faulty CD even if you get that far

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Thanks Husse for the reply.
Yes, I checked md5sumand burnt with 8x. When I repeated the Installation, it worked perfectly. I don't know what went wrong the first time. Anyhow, I think this will be my working distro soon..... :D

I had the same thing happen. It hung on the first attempt but succeeded on the second. I believe I also burned mine @ 8X. using k3b which checks MDSum automatically. BTW, I really like MINT.
