Hi All,

Fix was to use the default kernel and append acpi=off and noacpi to the kernel booting line.

Thanks to all who have responded!

Hi All,

I have an asus m2n-sli motherboard with one sata and one ide drive
installed. the ide drive has windows xp and the 1 terebyte sata drive
has nothing and is to be used for the suse install.

The darn things has given me nothing but grief with the suse install.
If I boot normally to install I get a black screen and hangs. If I do a
nolocal apic install it gets stuck at the activating usbs and goes no
further if I do the no acpi install it hangs on loading sata_nv and the
same for the safe settings install.

Any help would be great, please!



Just for fun have you tried to install with hwprobe=-modules.pata boot options? rsschwedler

Yes, sir i just did (thanks for the response) and now hangs at the Activating usb devices...

Not even getting into the installer yet...
