then maybe you have a hardware problem…or a machine which is
underpowered for 11.1
maybe you should start over, and tell us about your machine…and,
exactly what operating system(s) you have already installed on it

as previously said: NONE the images on the page
http://software.opensuse.org/ will result in booting up to a black
screen with white text requiring a log in…
instead, all of the Live CDs will boot up to a working KDE that you
can try out, and THEN click on the Install icon on the desktop…
if that does NOT happen it is because it is not possible automatically
set up that version on your hardware…
how old is your hardware?
how much ram do you have?
what graphics card do you have?
will the 32 bit version load and run?
have you read and followed all the steps in http://tinyurl.com/6jwtg9
(especially Step 6 of posting #2 “Check MD5SUM again from within
installation CD/DVD” and do not overlook the info in posting #3)
your first post said “Skipped services in runlevel5 -
nfs,acpid,irq_balancer” is that what you also got after you checked
your md5sum and (i guess) made a good Live CD?
if so, have you tried turning off acpid during the initial bootup?
to do that, at the FIRST green screen (the one that offers to boot to
a live interface) just type this in the “Boot Options” blank at the
bottom of the graphic:
