Installation of Linux on Acer Aspire 5502NWXMi laptop


Hi all this is my first post over this web.

I just received my Acer laptop model as mentioned in subject. I try to install Mandriva 10.2, the installer works in text mode and installation success. Anyway when I boot the system. My laptop hang at:
Uncompressing Linux.... Success, booting to kernel.

It happened to every distro I have. I also try LiveCD and it doesnt work too.
All of them hang at the same place.
Please help me, Im willing to have linux in my laptop.

At what speed do you burn your distro CDs? Sometimes if they're burned at too high a rate, the image gets corrupted. I always burn my ISOs at 4x.

After some tinkering I finally got it working. Use the 'noapci' flag.
Now just trying to work out my xorg config
