Help! Mandrake installer freezes just after starting
I am trying to install Mandrake 9.2 on a new computer, and the installer freezes just after printing "in second stage install"
I tried with my older Mandrake 8.2 CD, and this one too freezes
right after detecting the hard drives. 8.2 installed fine on my other computer, but not on the new one.
This is my computer:
Processor: P4 2.6 GHz 800MHz FSB with Hyper Threading enabled
RAM: 2x256 Mb PC4000 (DDR500) Kingston HyperX
Motherboard: MSI 865-P Neo2
HD: Maxtor DiamondMax9 120GB SATA 8Mb
Video Card: ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128 Mb
Sound and network card integrated on the motherboard
My HD has 4 partitions, NTFS (104Gb), FAT32 (8Gb), Ext2fs (4Gb) and SWAP (1 Gb) and I have WinXP Pro installed on the NTFS one
To install Mandrake 9.2 I used the bootdisk for hard-drive install (the mandrake files are on the FAT32 partition) since the ISO's are not yet available for download.
When I tried to install 8.2, I was booting from the Mandrake 8.2 CD.
Thanks if anyone can help me with this problem
