    Default Installation on ASUS Z270-P Mainboard fails

    Hi,

    i've tried to install OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 on a computer with an ASUS Z270-P mainboard with 8GB RAM, a core i5 and a NVIDIA GTX 670 graphics board. The installation however fails to a very stage of the installation . Unfortunately i don't have much information at this point of time. The last messages on the screen are

    Code:
    Loading basic drivers... ok
    Starting hardware detection... ok
    (If a driver is not working for you, try booting with brokenmodules=driver_name)
    
    Intel 200 Series PCH SATA controller [AHCI mode]
      drivers: ahci*
    Activating usb devices... ok
    General USB Flash Disk
      drivers: uas, usb_storage*
    Generic SD/MMC
      drivers: uas, usb_storage*
    Alcor Micro AU6477 Card Reader Controller
      drivers: usbhid*
    Logitech Unifying Receiver
      drivers: usbhid*
    Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
      drivers: r8169*
    I've already tried, to install with parameters line acpi=off and nomodeset. Since r8169 is the last driver that got loaded during the installation process, I also disabled it with brokenmodules=r8169. Nothing of this works so. Does anyone of you have an idea?

    Thanks for your help!

    Most likely it's the driver after 8169 that's crashing, actually - try completely disabling ACPI with: acpi=off

    as i wrote before, I already tried acpi=off. No success. Is there a way, to find out, which driver gets loaded after 8169?

    My apologies, I must be suffering from morning blindness apparently :-)

    Could you by any chance try the Tumbleweed -NET boot to see if it also crashes on this particular hardware?

    Tumbleweed manages to boot further. So this problem only exists in Leap 42.3

    After the message with Realtek-driver tumbleweed show the following

    Code:
    ...
    Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller
      drivers: r8169*
    enp4s0: network config created
    Sending DHCP request to enp4s0...
    ok, ip=192.168.178.49/24
    Loading http:// ......
    it seem, that Leap is not able to initialize its Ethernet-Controller while Tumbleweed manages this.
    I´d really prefer to use Leap, because its my working computer and I can´t need experiments on it.

    Do you have any ideas?

    Greetings
    Ralf

    It might be worthwhile to examine it through disabling your LAN controller from BIOS/EFI, this should let you see if it truly hangs because of the LAN driver or something after that.
