    Hi, welcome !!!

    What you see is not the default installer, it's the text based one. Which makes me wonder whether you checked the install media?

    hi, i use text mode installer to find what is problem? when checked install media after 10 seconds hard disk and cd drive not work and screen freeze. i think finally found what is problem, it is from my graphic card (GeForce GTX 550 Ti). i wanted to use live opensuse to check issue but i haven't this version of opensuse and use ubuntu 12.04 live for check this issue. when i disabled gtx 550 and enabled onboard graphic ubuntu live works (but opensuse can't work also this mode). with gtx 550 ubunu live can't boot and work and freeze.
    i found the same problem in forums, that have 560 gtx card.
    picture of checking for text mode install that show a command that i show in red line. i think problem is in graphic pci device.
    is a way to correct this problem and can use gtx 550 graphic card in linux? i need this graphic card in linux.

    Use nomodeset in the boot options. This will use force the use of VGA driver which should work. Once installed install the NVIDIA driver and all should be well

    no, i think you misunderstood Knurpht's helpful hint:

    check your install media by booting from the media and then selecting
    "Check Install Media" (rather than Installation, or other) like you
    see here: http://tinyurl.com/3qde66h

    because if the disk is not right, you might get exactly the kinds of
    symptoms you are seeing.

    Beware of not using the new "Fast Startup feature" of Windows 8.
