Hi to all. I have windows 7 and I’d like to install opensuse 11.3. I have tried with liveCD, live usb, live dvd, but when I click installation, it shows “kernel loading”, and when it finishes the loading, all I get is a black screen. Sometimes, when I try with the live CD method it reboots and the same happens again.
In my other computer with XP installed inside, it works immediately.
I have tried to change video mode to text and vesa mode, also I have typed “acpi=off noapic edd=off” in the boot options line, but it didn’t worked.
The black screen appears not only for the installation option, but also when I choose boot live CD, and check installation media. By the way, I have checked the downloaded iso with md5 checker, and it’s the right file.
Help me please, and forgive me for my poor English.
Thanks for your replies.
I have tried both nomodeset option, and the other procedure with shift button to enter text mode.
I type linux after boot: and it shows some lines refering to acpi and some numbers, but it doesn’t continue. It stops and I force closed it after some minutes of waiting.
My card is nvidia 8600M GT, but the strange part of the story is that 1 week before, I managed to boot it in the same computer with live usb.
Now it doesn’t work with live usb, neither with cd and dvd. It’s weird.
Ok, now I’ll be more specific and give more details. Few days before, when I was trying 2-3 distributions trying to choose one (difficult choice indeed), I had tried opensuse. I downloaded it and created a live usb for opensuse Live KDE. It booted derectly and install it fine, also I had installed nvidia drivers to see if they work in opensuse. Then I deleted the partitions and installed another distribution.
Now I’ve made my choice and can’t install it…revenge?
I have tried two different usb keys that I had formated in windows and in linux using the dd_rescue. After that I tried burning the dvd and the cd. All of them had the same behaviour. Tomorrow or the day after tomorrow I will try with opensuse 11.2.
