I have a Dell Latitude D430 laptop with a working version of OpenSuse 11.4. The
12.1 Live KDE iso works on this system without problems. I downloaded the
OpenSUSE-12.1-NET-i586.iso from When I try to start the
installation from it, the system loads the kernel, briefly flashes the opensuse
boot screen, and then hangs with a black screen. No messages are ever printed
to the screen.

If I select "safe mode", the installation starts as expected

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert OpenSuse 12.1 32-bit network boot CD and boot
2. Choose "Start Installation"

Actual Results:
System loads the kernel and hangs with a blank screen

Expected Results:
Installation starts
