Thread: Cannot install suse on laptop

    Default Cannot install suse on laptop

    Hello.
    I have a Sony Vaio laptop. I try to install suse 11.1 doesnot let me. In the third step in the installation, when it detects the cd-rom I get an error message:

    "Unable to mount cd-rom installation. This probably means that the cd-rom was not in the reader. If so, you can insert it and try again.
    Trying to mount the cd-rom again? "

    I tried it with Windows, Ubuntu and MEPIS and I have no problems, but suse seems to be having problems with the DVD
    Perhaps the problem is that now the new dvd is AHCI, and it is a matter of drivers. Any idea as experts?

    Did you run the media check from the cd/dvd menu?
    It takes about 20 min's give or take

    see if it checks OK

    Have a look here

    But I would still run the media check. It seems like your drive is having trouble reading it!
