Of course, but what Don wrote was-

Leap 15 DVD install program would not boot.

which, to me, meant that while the DVD booted he couldn't get past
selecting the Install part.
Well, I would then on the DVD boot menu choose the entry for
self-checking the DVD
How would this get the installer to begin the installation process?
It wouldn't.

The idea is to verify that the DVD is correct before rebooting again to
install. Maybe it is bad.

Right.

Just for the record, so to speak, yesterday I was forced by circumstances to re-install Leap 15.0 on my laptop.

I have a DVD which has been checked for errors (there are none), and the surface of the DVD is perfectly clean and yet, when the DVD 'booted' and I selected "Installation" from the menu, the loading of the kernel "stopped, short, never to go again" some 25 seconds into the process.

I then rebooted the laptop and when Leap 15's menu came up I typed "nomodeset" on the kernel command line, pressed ENTER ... and the installation then proceeded without a hitch.

"Good!", I thought to myself, "now I can tell Carlos that what I stated earlier is proven." :-)
nomodset did not function for me. Thanks for the suggestion. I am going to set loglevel=7 and see what it tells me.

Don
