One success:-) I was able to boot the Leap 15 installation DVD if I selected F5 and Safe Settings. I now need to find out exactly what this sets so I can try these settings on the other kernels I have had problems with. And maybe isolate what hardware appears inconsistent.




    If you encounter problems with the regular installation, this menu offers to disable a few potentially problematic functions. If your hardware does not support ACPI (advanced configuration and power interface) select No ACPI to install without ACPI support. No local APIC disables support for APIC (Advanced Programmable Interrupt Controllers) which may cause problems with some hardware. Safe Settings boots the system with the DMA mode (for CD/DVD-ROM drives) and power management functions disabled.

    If you are not sure, try the following options first: Installation—ACPI Disabled or Installation—Safe Settings. Experts can also use the command line (Boot Options) to enter or change kernel parameters.

Did you read my last post? I tried all of the suggested parameters and isolated the problem to acpi=off. I am a bit tired now and am not sure how to proceed from here. In the old days I would have built a kernel and run it under gdb. I assume one can still do that, but have not checked.
