    Default 13.1 install discs (various versions) won't work on HP Pro 3015

    Install discs for version 13.1 fail - it's difficult to find meaningful info - during boot process.
    Therefore the install cannot proceed.
    All discs have been verified/checked and were successfully used on Acer machines.
    The boot process seems to be failing for this particular vanilla HP model

    I also tried to run a live version and this too, fails to load.

    It may be difficult to describe, but please try. Do you see anything on the screen after your BIOS boot splash?

    After boot and the user choice made from menu the boot fails with last lines being

    mount: parts/01_user: we need a loop device
    mount: using /dev/loop1

    [ 2.256006 BIOS EDD facility v0.16 2004-Jun-25, 1 devices found
    >>> openSUSE installation program v4.1.5 (copyright notice) [my abbrev]
    starting udev...

    The screen clears at some points and no user interaction is possible ie keyboard is dead

    What video card?

    Also check the media when on the problem machine some times DVD drives have problems with disks burned on other machines.
