What I'm trying to say is that it does not look like the hardware is a problem....Just want to give all the info in case it could be.
I am trying to install pretty much any os (would prefer it to be open source so there is no authenticity problems) but so far have had no luck. I have tried last xp, but that turns to bsod as soon as I try to install the drivers and programs. I currently have a linux mint 10 cd in the dvd drive stuck on "loading...casper/inidrt.lz......" (more dots). WHAT DO!? Any good os are welcome, basically just need an os to start messing with the partitions and other hdds attached to the motherboard.
