Installation stops in the middle of bootup (on new machine)
Ok, I have at the least 5 different Linux distros and they used to work fine on my old machine (Pentium III, 533mhz, 128+64 MB RAM) Now I recently purchased a relatively cheap motherboard+cpu combo deal (board=mercury, cpu=AMD Duron 1.2 Ghz, Ram=256 DDR) and that's where the problems started. Each and every one of my Linux distros stop booting in the middle of the installation bootup. Windows works just fine. So what's wrong with that? Are my linux distros not made for AMD? I have Libranet, Evil Entity, Agnula, Kubuntu and Dyne:Bolic. Somebody told me it's got something to do with the software, not hardware. Don't all Lnux distros work basically on all architectures? Please somebody help me!?
PS: most of the distros stop booting at "RAMDISK: compressed image found in block 0", sometimes earlier or later (CDRom speed ceases down til it finally stops)
