    Question Failed to Detect CD Drive - openSUSE 10.3 Live KDE

    Hi,

    I've been trying to install openSUSE 10.3 on my old laptop via the Live KDE CD. The kernel loads with no problem, but after a while (still in text-based enviroment) it will say:

    "Failed to detect CD Drive
    RebootException
    Something about rebooting in 60 seconds"

    Note I am using the only CD drive with the live CD in it.
    I have tried passing kernel configurations including:

    noacpi
    acpi=noirq
    acpi=off

    None of these worked (and probably have nothing to do with my problem). I searched Google and this forum, but nothing seemed to be resolved or applicable to my situation.

    My laptop is an old Toshiba Satellite 1730.

    Do you have a USB flash drive you can use instead? (1GB+)?

    Are you wanting to try it, or just install it?
