Installation Issues with SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop

Hello all,

first of all, thank you for running this place, I am sure you helped a lot newbies like me to get Linux running for the first time.

Here my problem; I am trying to install SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop but PC keeps restarting while loading the kernel, even from the command line with yast.

The configuration; AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE on a Gigabyte 790XTA-UD4, 4 GB RAM, Radeon HD 6850, WD Blue Caviar 500 GB SATA2 disk. USB3 currently disabled, disk is on IDE mode, formatted as NTFS. And Windows XP is already running.

Thanks in advance.

Hi xeryus,

Welcome to LQ!!!

Which version of SLED you are trying to install? Do you get any message before system restart? Remember SLED is not free you need to buy a license from Novell / SuSE for getting updates. If you have got a subscribtion already then you can get in touch with Novell to help you with the install. If you are planning to install linux for learning purpose I would suggest you to go with more user friendly distribution like Linux Mint or Ubuntu.
