I’m trying to install SUSE 12.1 64bit on two different servers (Supermicro X6DHE-G2 and X6DH8-G2) both of which currently run 11.3 64bit just fine. I’m using an install DVD that is known to be good and each time I try and boot from the disc to start the installation I see the system hang while “ISOLINUX 4.04 0x4eac4005 …” is displayed on the screen. Nothing happens after this and the system is unresponsive. Booting from a 11.3 disc works with no issue. Has anyone experienced this or know a workaround?
If there’s any other info needed just ask. Thanks in advance.
I’ve got exactly the same problem! Have just updated the X6DHE-G2’s BIOS to the latest 2.0c but without success .
I think the isolinux system on the DVD or live USB hangs when trying to switch to that annoying fancy graphic screen (has an onboard ATI Rage XL 8MB). Maybe it would help to remove the line ‘ui …’ from isolinux.cfg to keep it in basic text mode, but that’s not so easy inside the iso. Very annoying!
