Last week I upgraded my MoB, chip and cooler to a new AMD UEFI board , FX chip and water cooling.
All went fine and my system was stright up and running; i didn’t have to do a re-install or anything.
Messing around today I did something silly in command line whilst in SU mode and deleted all my files (rm -r /*); I thought if I was cd’d into a directory it would only clear that directory; I guess you live and learn. I have full back ups so all good.
I have tried to reinstall openSUSE 13.2 (64bit) but can not get it to work; either as UEFI mode or legacy BIOS. It’s not the install media because I have tried it in an old lappy and it ran fine.
Setup starts as normal; I select Install from the menu; it runs through some text; says it’s launching yast; then initializing a virtual console; and the screen just goes black - Nothing.
I ran DBAN on the SSD just to ensure it was clean and still no dice.
Just to make sure it’s not hardware related and for fun and giggles I have just installed my old XP disc and the install went perfectly!!
I’m guessing it’s a driver issue? My graphics card is an old Radeon HD4600.
Any one any ideas?
