Installation problems T.T


I'm new to the Linux OS, and it's the first time I install it on my PC. I Want to make it a dual-boot with Windows XP Media Center so I could still use the old software until I get used to Linux. My problem is: (on openSUSE 10.2) I start the installation (normal installation), and it loads perfectly. After it installs the files and restarts the PC, when it's supposed to continue the installation, it just freezes (on the "detail screen" I get this message -> INIT: ID "1" respouning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes <-- and same for "2", "3", "4", "5", "6"). I tried to wait, but it kept displaying the same things over and over again. I tried the check DVD for errors, and it didn't show any. I tried other distributions before this one. I tried SUSE Enterprise desktop 10 and same error occurs. On "Ubuntu 7.04" (the one I really wanted to install), after I press "Install/Start Ubuntu", the loading screen freezes even before starting the installation. I really need some help and I've tried to look on the internet and help files, but I didn't find anything. And in the IRC help channel, I didn't even get any suggestions. If someone can help me, I'll be really grateful. My system specifications are:
Motherboard: ASRock 775i65GV
CPU: Intel Celeron (2,53gHz)
VGA: Gigabyte ATI Radeon 9200 AGP (128mb, pixel shader - 1.4, vertex shader - 1.1, TV out, ViVo) (I also have an on-board VGA card - Intel extreme graphics 32mb)
Sound: C-Media (on board)
RAM: 1024mb DDR
HDD: Maxtor 40gb + Seagate 160gb (both not SATA)
CDVD: LG Dual Layer DVD-RW 16x24x16
Floppy: IBM standard floppy
Keyblard: Compaq standard keyboard (no multimedia functions or buttons)
Mouse: Genius PS2 laser mouse
Monitor: Compaq S720 color Monitor

P.S.
Partition settings - Maxtor HDD -> Windows XP (all 40gb. file system = fat32). Seagate HDD -> data (downloads, games etc.) 114gb (file system = fat32), Linux 10gb (file system = ext3), Linux (don't know why it made it in 2 instead of 1) 20gb (file system = ext3), Linux SWAP 500mb

if you want to contact me personally, I use MSN: devianart.dummy1234@hotmail.com or Skype: dummy1234. Thanks to everyone who try (or succeed) to help me.

OK, first a good natured complaint: You don't make your post very easy to read, and you are relying on people wanting to help you. So please use a little white space to break it up a bit in future.

Secondly, you've include a lot of information and excluded possibly the most useful bit.

The two most likely possibilities were a kernel boot time option (interaction with the chipset) and video set up. But seeing as 'safe video mode' didn't work, you are probably looking at an interaction between your chipset and the kernel (and you didn't say what the motherboard chipset was! - I can understand this, but its a bit ironic, given all the information that you did include).

However, this doesn't really mater as it is probably as quick to proceed by trial and error, given that if you had included the chipset, I'd have still be guessing somewhat. At the initial install screen there are various options and bits of information on the various F keys (F1, F2, F3...). What you are looking for are things like 'noapic' 'nolapic', 'nodma'. Some combination of those should work, but I can't tell you what is going to work on your particular board. So its trial and error time.

Thanks for the ifno, but I managed to solve the problem myself. It was a VGA card issue (so I used the "on-board" card instead and it installed perfectly). Anyway, thanks for trying to help me. -thread can be closed-
