Our posts crossed - I have corrected that post - what you entered was for someone trying to boot into an already installed system - I forgot that you are INSTALLING slackware - thus you should just need to enter the one word "nomodeset" (without quotes) at the prompt.

Sorry my mistake. (I even clicked by mistake your post as helpful.. I need more coffee.

EDIT:
What you suggested is what you use if you wish to boot into an already installed slackware.

But you are trying to install Slackware, so you just need the one parameter.
i tried for the before given command it does not work and i tried for this one also.
when the screen appear and ask for pressing enter i entered nomodeset but it gave
could not found the kernel image : nomodeset.

Ok, it was worth the try. When it gets working you'll see that shortly afterwards it blanks the screen, resetting the mode, and sometimes that is a problem.

Try this as well - another boot parameter.

Since it seems to be getting stuck at a point where it is fiddling with acpi, this might help:

Quote:
huge.s nomodeset acpi=force

That doesn't matter at the moment - you'll be asked to create the partitions prior to "setup".

PCI stuff follows RCP. It might be stuck at rcp or at the pci stuff which follows. Can you check that link I posted and play with the parameters for pci? I can't find anything on rcp at the moment.

I have to go now, but I'll be back on line in about 3 hours - minus some teeth

You should also try booting without the "nomodeset" parameter, since it was acpi which was causing the problems up to that point in the boot process.

Here is my boot log from about the section where you are getting stuck:
Quote:
UDP hash table entries: 2048 (order: 4, 65536 bytes)
UDP-Lite hash table entries: 2048 (order: 4, 65536 bytes)
NET: Registered protocol family 1
RPC: Registered named UNIX socket transport module.
RPC: Registered udp transport module.
RPC: Registered tcp transport module.
RPC: Registered tcp NFSv4.1 backchannel transport module.
pci 0000:00:1a.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
pci 0000:00:1a.0: PCI INT A disabled
pci 0000:00:1d.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 23 (level, low) -> IRQ 23
pci 0000:00:1d.0: PCI INT A disabled
PCI-DMA: Using software bounce buffering for IO (SWIOTLB)

software IO TLB at phys 0xbb2a5000 - 0xbf2a5000

So, somewhere here is the problem

so what parameters should i give if nomodeset is removed then should i give only acpi parameter...
but i have one bigger query that if i forcefully stop the packages which are meant to load during boot since they are causing any trouble problem, will those packages not cause any problem after installations
