I am a compleet noob concerning opensuse but i thought to give it a try.
I tried it on Acer Aspire 7520. I tried to download the dvd iso. I think i should have downloaded 4.3 gig but when downloaded i only get 347 Mb. I tried it three times and every time it gave me that amount. I thought that was ok and some more data would be downloaded from the internet during installation.
Ok maybe it has to download more after installation. So i burned the iso on a dvd without problems and i inserted the dvd.
After installation of a little file i had to restart which gave me the choice between vista or opensuse. Ok no problem so far.
I choose opensuse and the installation started but stalled after 70% with remark : unable to create repository etc etc
Ok that didnt work so i tried again : same result (of course…)
So i choose vista but now whatever i do ; whatever choice i make the laptop starts the initiation of opensuse 11.1 installer (local)
Fine i decided to reinstall vista from my vista bootdvd’s. I insert the dvd but it doesnt even recognize it and again it tries to install opensuse 11.1
No matter what i do it tries to install opensuse 11.1
Every time it says : booting opensuse installer etc etc
Even F8 doesnt do anything…
And after reading my hardware it asks in danish (??!?!?!) for inserting cd number 1 (which is not right burned!!!)
Iow i am fck*d… Or not?
Can someone explain what to do so at least i can work on that laptop again???
Thx in advance
