Have Compaq Presario 3017CL notebook with SuSE 9.2 installed and running fine.

Trying to install/upgrade SuSE 9.3.

When booting from the DVD and selecting "Installation", the system hangs while "Initializing".

When booting from the DVD and selecting "Installation w/o ACPI" or "Installation - Safe mode" the installation ask for keyboard, etc. but then says it can find no hard drive.

I did not experience a problem like this when installing SuSE 9.1 or SuSE 9.2 on this system.

Any idea how to get past this? Boot parameters to try, etc.?
