Unable to install Linux on INTEL DG33FB motherboard


Hello
I have purchased Few New Computer with Intel DG33FB Desktop motherboard. On this I couldnot install Linux. I have tried all variants of linux like
1. Scientific Linux CERN 3.0.3 (Build on RHEL3)
2. Scientific Linux CERN 3.0.5 (Build on RHEL3)
3. Scientific Linux CERN 4.4 (Build on RHEL4)
4. Scientific Linux CERN 4.5 x86-64 (Build on RHEL4)
5. Scientific Linux 5.0. (Build on RHEL5)
6. Redhat Enterprise Linux 4
7. Suse 10.2
8. Fedora 3
9. Fedora 7
10. Gentoo Linux

In each case when system boot from OS installataion CD, It start installing and then it hangs and it shows:-
--------------------------------------------
Setting up standard PCI resources
ACPI: Interpreter enabled
ACPI: Using IOAPIC for interrupt routing
ACPI: PCI Rot Bridge [PCI0](0000:00)
ACPI: Assumeroot bridge[\_SB_.PCI0]bus is 0

--------------------------------------------

I can install XP successfully on this mother board. I think this motherboard is so new that no linux is supporting it. If any one has tried linux installation on this motherboard then suggest solution.

Configuration of my PC is :-
Intel Desktop Board Classic Series DG33FB
Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz processor
4MB L2 cache
2GB DDR2- 667MHz RAM
1033 MHz FSB
500 GB SATA HDD.
etc.

I have tried with 400GB SATA and 40 GB IDE harddisk also but same result with all.

Perhaps, on the boot commandline when the installation CD starts, try a few switches after the kernel name, such as:

noioapic
nolapic
noapic
acpi=off

..in that order. From the info you posted, it looks like the ACPI or APIC system is causing the hang.
If this helps you get it booted/installed, then LATER you can work on configuring the ACPI or APIC in such a way as to not do this.

Let us know how it goes.

acpi=off option somewhat works for some linux like SL5.0 but after this it shows:

Choose a Language - English
Keyboard Type
Installation Method - Local CDROM
No Driver Found - Select Driver
Select Device Driver to Load.
there are many drivers. but none is able to install.

and here i stuck.

Are you installing from a SATA CDROM drive? If so, you would need to install a driver for it.

I am not using any SATA devices yet, nor do I have any experience with Scientific Linux, so I hope that someone else can jump in here and make a suggestion for you.

For the record, what exactly happens when you attempt to install one of the 'many drivers' and what driver(s) are they exactly? What are they for, and please give the names of the items trying to install, and any error messages produced.

No I am not using SATA cdrom...it is IDE only.

And it is not matter of Scientific Linux....I cannot install any Linux variant as earlier I mentioned.

Now when i started to install linux it stops at

No Driver Found - Select Driver
Select Device Driver to Load.

Here it shows a Big list of drivers for many things....then I have removed Installation CD and inserted MOTHERBOARD Driver CD. After this one by one I have installed those driver, no error no message printed, after installation of each driver that line is removed from the list...
After this full process at last 2 Driver could not install those are

IBM ServeRAID (ips)
ICP RAID Controller (gdth)

and here i stuck.

I think I am able to explain the problem.


(In one line problem is how to install Linux on INTEL DG33FB motherboard).

How to do it.

I also am installing Linux on this board.

You should have received the instructions for non-vista installation in the packaging. It's on the back of a single glossy page with Viiv info on it.

Quote:

If you do not plan to use this Desktop Board with Microsoft Windows Vista operating system, you will need to perform the steps below to avoid operating system failures:
1. Power on the system and press F2 to enter the system BIOS setup.
2. In the BIOS setup screen, press the arrow keys to scroll to the "Advanced" menu. Select the option for "Drive" and press Enter.
3. Select the option for "Configure SATA As", and change the entry to "IDE".
4. Press F10 to save changes and exit from the BIOS setup.

You may now begin installation of the operating system of your choice.

success with slackware 12

boot with:
hugesmp.s acpi=off

i have a problem accessing the cdrom (ide) with this kernel ...

so you must copy all install CD's on /dev/sda2 for example ...(at other pc)

before run setup - mkdir /mnt2; mount /dev/sda2 /mnt2

at install specify:

install from a premounted directory

path: /mnt2/slackware

...

but I have another problem with acpi=off i can't run my core2 duo processor second core ...

# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor : 0

all problems solved :-)

just add this line in /etc/lilo.conf

Code:
append = "pci=nommconf"
--------------------------------------

or add "pci=nommconf" after kernel name at boot ...

I am not getting any problem in accessing CDROM.

As I have mentioned earlier also that I couldnot install Linux at all.

so where to give these options:-
>>>>boot with:
>>>>hugesmp.s acpi=off

I have tried this option also at the time of installation start
>>linux hugesmp.s acpi=off but no inprovement same installation stops at begining and asks for drivers.

I have also tried to install through network boot also but same problem it asks for drivers.

suggest

try with "pci=nommconf"

linux hugesmp.s acpi=off but no inprovement same installation stops at begining and asks for drivers.
^^^^^
hugesmp.s is your kernel name ... at cd boot just type (without linux): hugesmp.s acpi=off

What drivers ? Do you install slackware 12.0 or another linux ?

try with "pci=nommconf" if "acpi=off" doen not work

I'm with a ata cdrom, not sata, and cannot see cdrom after cd boot
-------------------------

I'm writing from DG33FB + Intel E6850, all works great ...
