Question Mandrake 10.1 Installation problems


I run the Mandrake 10.1 Boot CD to install. The installation software starts successfully, but then comes up with error : No CDROM device found. It will not continue with the installation past this point.

Do you have more than one CD-ROM drive on your system?

Also, if you have one, is it set to be bootable in your system BIOS?

Unhappy

I have only one CDROM drive on my computer - LG CD R/W DVD Combo. (IDE\CDROMHL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4520B)

The BIOS is configured to use the CDROM drive as first option to boot from.

It boots up from the Boot CD and displays the installation screen successfully. When I hit enter to continue with the installation, it comes up with the CDROM error message while looking for installed hardware.

When I OK the error message it comes up with a notice that I must insert a floppy with additional drivers.

Is it possible that the CD drive is not supported by Mandrake yet ?

Fixed it !

I make use of a 80GB SATA hard drive.

I had to change settings in my BIOS for the computer to access both hard drive and CD-ROM drive.

Settings in BIOS :
Integrated Peripherals - On-Chip IDE Configuration
On-Chip ATA(s) Operate Mode (Native)
ATA Configuration (P-ATA only)
S-ATA Keep Enabled (Yes)

I further had to disable USB Legacy Support in the BIOS as I make use of an USB Wireless keyboard and mouse.

The installation process went smooth after this.

I think he's "bashing" Mandrake all over the place.
