New First Time Live CD

Live Cd Stalls at the green screen, or how long is the wait?

Try some different boot options: like vesa
Is it F3, I can’t recall

Boot should only take a min or so

I adusted the bios to boot and it does but I just get to the green screen that says open suse. If I press escape then I see terminal working in the background.

I was referring to when the cd boots
see the first screenshot here
Installation/11.0 Live CD - openSUSE

see lower section of picture F3 Video Mode

Assuming you have moved the down arrow on your keyboard to highlight installation, now press F3 and try vesa

or

If the graphical boot menu doesn’t show or freezes, try press and hold Shift on the keyboard when booting the installation media. This starts the text-mode boot menu instead.
