Live CD SuSE 11.1 on Dell Studio 1745 fails to boot

Live CD SuSE 11.1 fails to boot on Dell Studio 1745. It reaches a certain level and then locks and dies.

Any ideas?

I think on the very first green boot menu, the liveCDs have an F3 that you can press. Try selecting VESA if it is an option.

acpi=off seems to bypass the problem. Alas the wifi (broadcom 4312) is not recognized. I’ll post to the network forum.

Thank you
