Hey, I have the same problem, but my installation freezes everytime in a different place, the farest i got, was setting up the boot device, I dont know what the problem is because I ran redhat 9 without any problems, and I ran SuSe 9.1 personal without any problems either... Later on I will try the text mode, but can someone tell me how to set up flopppy boot in the text mode? thanks,


Tom

Its not a problem with Mandrake 10.0 itself, rather the kernel. 2.6.3-7mdk is still rather young. I too was having lockups with file copying from harddrive/network/etc. as well as random lockups. I compiled 2.6.7 and it works like a charm now.

I will be buying 10.1 powerpack official when it comes out. Mandrake has done such a superior job on this distro that I feel guilty for using it and not giving them my money.

I encourage you guys to do the same....

One or two of you have one of the the nForce2 boards, what I have with my barton 2500+. Would you like my kernel config file? You'd just have to change hte sound drivers (mine is pci, onboard no work) and a few other things for your specific cdrom/etc/whatever/hardware.

I got it to work thanks to the dude who said to do this

"linux noapic nolapic" and it installed fine, but I have other problem that I cannot install any updates from CD because then my system hangs again...

besides that I love Mandrake 10

Hi,

I had the bloody same problem, kept freezing during bootup and while using MDK 10. A small fix and ya system will be (should) running mint! Follow : Control Center -> Boot -> Boot Loader

Within the Boot Loader options, ENABLE "Force No APIC" & "Force No Local APIC".

And this should fix it up,
Please let me know if it doesnt,would like to help.
Cheers

In control center, in your bootloader options. Enable "Force No APIC" & "Force No Local APIC"
