Installation from boot.iso CD freezes
 
Hi,

I have downloaded Mandrake tree under /i586/. for hard drive installation. I wanted to use boot.iso for installation.

I burned the boot CD (boot/installation worked fine on an other computer, so the CD is okay) but on my laptop installation freezes after the first screen, just before the menu that asks for hard drive or network install.

As anybody encounterd this problem (and fixed it ?). Thanks.

I found the solution to this problem on MandrakeExpert forum. If you have the same problem, instead of "linux noapic nolapic" as suggested above try "linux noauto".
