I’m trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 64bit on my HP Pavilion dv6 laptop. This is the Intel i7 processor with 8 Gb of RAM and Nvidia NVS 3100M graphics. I can boot from my 64bit installer LiveCD for KDE, but once I choose Install, after the first selection screen where I can change the default video at the bottom, I just get the openSUSE symbol and it hangs. I have tried all of the options at the first page for video setting or Kernel setting, but it didn’t help.
My system specifications are as follows:
CPU: Intel(R) Core™ i7 Q 720 @ 1.60GHz
RAM: 4GB DDR3
Graphics Card: nVidia GeForce GT 230M, 1024 MB Dedicated video memory.
I should mention that I have currently a dual-boot OS, i.e. Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.10.
I also checked the burnt CD on another machine and the CD worked. So the problem is not because of the CD.
I can’t find any info on installing Suse on this notebook. I appreciate any help in advance.
