It installed perfectly and I could use it without any problem immediately after installation. But soon after installation if I do a reboot, it goes upto green screen where one has to choose openSUSE 12.1 or its failsafe version. If I click any of it a black screen appears without any sign of login screen etc.
I would be grateful if someone could help me to figure out potential problems and how I can fix them. All other versions of openSUSE (11.4, 11.3 etc) do not pose such problem.
Many thanks in advance,
PS: There is only one operating system i.e., openSUSE 12.1 on my machine and it is installed on the first partition of the hard disk.
I did as you suggested. Here is the outcome
1> If I enter nomodeset in Boot Options while booting openSUSE 12.1 it does not help. I again get a blank screen.
2> If I enter 3 in Boot Options, I get following text in next screen,
My problem is solved. Thanks to “Oldcpu”, I used Gnome LiveCD for the installation and everything was fine. However, I still don’t have a clue what is wrong doing installation with DVD on my desktop machine? I used same DVD for successful installation on my laptop. Obviously hardware is different, but somehow DVD installation does not work for my desktop.
Thanks all who tried to help.
