Screen blacks out on SUSE 10 installation
Started an old PC with new video card -- AMD K6, GeForce MX4000 video card, BIOS American Megatrends 1.19 (circa 1999), 1gig memory. Inserted CD1 and started the PC. A white on blue screen displayed "Welcome, Willkommen... and so on," and then displayed selections for the following:
- Boot from Hard Disk
- Installation (ACPI Disabled)
- Installation (Safe Settings)
- Rescue System
- Memory Test
I started with "Installation" selection. The kernel progress bar displayed. After it reached 100%, the screen went black and a cursor blipped once in the top-left corner. The show ended.
I tried "Installation (ACPI Disable)", "Installation (Safe Settings)", and "Rescue System." The results were the same -- a black out.
The hard drive was formatted with Windows NT. It had Windows 98 and later NT, but I chose to pull all Microsoft from the machine.
Thanks in advance... Robert @ San Antonio
