unable to install scientific linux 5.5 on compaq CQ62 112TU Laptop


Sir, I have compaq CQ62 112TU model Laptop with core i5, 4GB DDR3, 320GB HDD which comes with free DOS. I have installed windows 7 in 50 GB partition and remaining HD space is for Scientific Linux 5.5 x86-64. When I start instal "Kernel panic - not syncing fatal exception" while first intall from DVD. When installed with power lead unplugged, after loading a few drivers, LCD's backlight goes off while installation continues. I am unsure whether it is the acpi (Advanced configuration power interface) issue or something might be wrong with my hardware configuration. Please help me to circumvent this problem at your earliest.

Welcome to LQ.

Boot options : F4

So you can just type this at the boot prompt :

linux noacpi noapic nolapic

... and soon find out if it will work.
