Installation of Linux on Acer Aspire 5502NWXMi laptop
Hi all this is my first post over this web.

I just received my Acer laptop model as mentioned in subject. I try to install Mandriva 10.2, the installer works in text mode and installation success. Anyway when I boot the system. My laptop hang at:
Uncompressing Linux.... Success, booting to kernel.

It happened to every distro I have. I also try LiveCD and it doesnt work too.
All of them hang at the same place.
Please help me, Im willing to have linux in my laptop.

At what speed do you burn your distro CDs? Sometimes if they're burned at too high a rate, the image gets corrupted. I always burn my ISOs at 4x.

I dont know whether the cd have been burned with 40x speed because i bought it with someone else.
Anyway i have installed that distro on my desktop without any problems. It just my laptop cant install this.
I wondering anything i can do to fix this problem?

Any update on success? I have an Acer TravelMate 3212WXMi with the same problem :(
I'm using the debian net install cd. I have installed using the cd with the 2.4 kernel, so now I want to reinstall with 2.6 kernel and I get this problem :(

After some tinkering I finally got it working. Use the 'noapci' flag. :)
Now just trying to work out my xorg config
