I burned an image of 11.4 on a dvd, on start up to replace Ubuntu 10.4, I press F10 to boot form cd, the Suse page comes up I click on installation, and it makes a humming noise for awhile like it is going to install but then if finally stops that and that is it nothing else happens.
Check options from this:
Yes and the same thing happens.
What about the text mode install?
How do I do that?
Press F3 as shown here and select Text
None of the above options work, tried new dvd, same thing, must be a problem with the iso.
But you said it passed the media check?
No, I said the same thing happened which is after the screen with the options comes up it just made the ususal hum then stopped. Next I made a live cd, tried that it seems to want to work but it ends up with a screen full of green streaks, and does not go ahead. I can not remember a time when any of these things happened on trying a new distro. What can it be?
Also tried Live CD on another computer, same result, nothing but green streaks, does not work. Looks like I will stay with Ubuntu.
So I dug out an Ubuntu 10.10 cd tried it it works, the Mint Cd works, I just can’t get the suse live cd or the dvd to work for me. I like to try all the new distros, but this is a mystery that I have never before encountered.
