stalls on installation

Postby tsaot » Sun Nov 18, 2007 11:01 pm

My Linux Mint Live CD installation stalls at 'detecting SCSI'. This occurs with PC Linux OS and Granular Linux as well. Safe mode install takes me a bit further, to a command line but I am not versed in command entries.
The disk and ram check out ok.
Asus M2A-VM with integrated ATI X1250, and an AMD 4200 64 X2.
Any ideas to help get this distro installed?

Read the release notes for Daryna final. At the end there are some options to use
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Are you using a purchased CD or did you download an ISO ?

Or, check out my list:

- maybe a bad burn
- check the MD5 sum
- burn slow if possible (2x or 4x)
- try the CD in another machine
- try a different brand of media
- try burning the iso to a DVD-RW media (don't laugh, this works)
- move the iso to another machine and burn it with it's burner
- test the media drive
- search the forums
- check to see whether your motherboard / soundcard / network card / "hardware x" is compatible with Linux:
- Google for it:
