SUSE install problems

suse install problems
( post #1)

After having made a good impression of suse on my second pc, i decided to install it on my first one!

The first one is pretty new, like 2 months old!

But when I boot the cd and start the installationthe screen goes black and the cd drive still works a bit, bu then nothing more happens!

I've already tried Installation safe settings and acpi disabled and also tried text mode, where I discovered that it freezes after displaying Hardware detection!

Having that in mind i removed my tv card from the computer and tried again, but again the same problem. I have no other pci-card!

In the suse live evaluation boot, I had the same problem!

Ati 9600 Pro
Athlon 2500+ Barton
MSI motherboard (forgot the model number)
160GB SAmsung
NEC 1300A DVD-Burner

Any help would be appreciated!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
