I have just got my new pc with AMD64 cpu, SATA disk.
While trying to install mandrake 10.1 the installation hangs when it tries to install drivers, before the main install. I did not even get to partitioning my disk.
I thought I could install both 32-bit and 64-bit OS on AMD64... am I wrong?
Anyone who can help?
First of all, please post what hardware you have including manufacturer, model numbers and chipsets if you know them.
Was any O/S on this system prior to your install attempt with say Linux that had a GRUB mbr?
What happens if you boot up with DOS and the drivers for CD and SATA? Can you see the disks with fdisk?
