Open Suse 10.2 doesn't install on Amilo L7300 Bios 1.0G

Postby balou1974 » Sat Jan 13, 2007 7:19 am

Hello,

I tried to install Open Suse 10.2 (DVD) on my Amilo L7300 but it hangs
after loading the installation kernel from DVD, tried several options failsafe, nolapic, acpi=off - used VESA or Text-Mode for Viewing (I could see nothing).
I think it is always hanging at hardware detection, no idea...

Others are using Linux on this model, so did you try other distributions (like Ubuntu)? Maybe they do something different.

Regards
Aaron

PS: Are you sure the DVD is ok?

Latest Knoppix runs well, Suse 10.0 runs well but not 10.1(only Problems with Grub) or 10.2 no installer just stops after Grub (from install DVD). Didn't try Ubuntu or Debian... I used the Suse 10.2 DVD on another machine works quite well must be an incompatible part of the hardware or bad bios...

Did you try to wait? Maybe there's some timeout...

Remove the "quiet"-parameter to see the kernel messages.

Hello, I have the same with my Amilo L7300. Other systems like Mandrive 2007 and ubuntu install fine but OpenSuse 10.2 just gives the blank screen right after the boot menu.
