PS/2 wireless devices?
I had a look on the HP site regarding this system.
But I am not really sure. The Mouse and the keyboard are attached via a PS/2 "wireless" connector? Is that correct?
If so it would be maybe better to perform the 1st install using a direct attached input devices.
I tried both PS2 and wireless and they yielded the same behavior. SATA drive support you mentioned is a more interesting question. Even though CentOS complains about the mouse, it did stop at dealing with hda1. I need to look at this a bit more.
Maybe. Try a PS/2 mouse. it seemed to have a driver, but usb mouses are always messy. Especially since they can be disabled in some bios configuration utilities. I cant imagine what triggers your problem. SuSE 10.1 should work.. A ps/2 mouse means a different driver meaning a different chance to get linux working.
Okay that what mnm told you is just what I mentioned above.
Try to install with an PS/2 Mouse and PS/2 Keyboard not as Driver Module
but as physical Hardware maybe we had a communication problem?
But if you did so is there any way to adjust something within the BIOS Setup regarding USB Devices?
If you have anyway of accessing that harddrive from another linux, the centos linux probably logs in /var/log. So, mount the harddrive in another linux box, and CD to the mounted hds var/log and launch your editor on any of the log files availible. You can list it with dir or ls.
You should post the logs... but i recommend highly putting each seperate files in code tags or quote tags or something that will make it easier to read than just posting it directly...
Hopefully we can find the problem. Strange problem...
Yes I understand what you mean. You cannot install cause annaconda freezes.
a) Your SATA is it configured as Raid?
b) Settings regarding USB: legacy support enabled (something like that)
c) how far does the setup wents through
- ISOLINUX boot prompt whats next?
d) have you tried to use with noprobe option - linux=noprobe
