I am currently trying to boot the Gnome Live-CD of OpenSuse 12.3 on my old Macbook (Version 4,1: detailed Specs can be found here).
Grub is found and I can select one of the two boot entries (normal or failsafe).
It does not matter which one I select, the system will start to boot and display "loading linux..." and "loading initrd...".
This step takes about 30 seconds to a minute.
After that it will only display an image and stop booting any further.
I alread tried the following kernel options without success:
When I set splash=0 and leave all other options as default the boot process will hang after the following message:
Unfortunately I can not enter any input to check the details.Code:[FAILED] Failed to start LSB: VirtualBox Linux Additions kernel modules. See 'systemctl status vboxadd.service' for details.
Moreover there are multiple messages of the type:
I wonder if anyone has an idea what other options I could try to get openSUSE to boot.Code:ACPI Warning: <...> SystemIO conflicts with Region <...>
Thanks in advance for any help or ideas,
