o.k. latter today I will try
also, I did not found any *usable* tips concerning Nvidia
(and I think THAT is not the problem since the thing freez on the
begining, while still in pure textual mode)


Agree - have seen/had lots of NVidia problems but only in X, usually
something to do with proprietary drivers (except for the dead fan on the
NVidia card that killed my machine yesterday, but that's OT).  A search
of the list archive and/or bugzilla will turn up plenty on NVidia and
the 4k stack problem, etc., etc....


Hy Phil,

yeah, no help there.

You don't say if you actually tried the "Check Media" option.  If so,
just be sure to do md5sums in advance to verify the media and skip that
step.  Had a hang at that point in an FC2 test install a while back, but
skipping the media check let the install proceed successfully.


thats the problem. I get red box saying "check media", there's two buttons but AT THAT point nothing works any more. Mouse, keyboard, everything dead. Cant say "yes", cant say "no". Reboot helps :-)

Some systems have trouble with ACPI.  Might try acpi=off as a boot
parameter also.


tried that. no help. disabled ACPI in BIOS - no help again :-)

If this is an SMP box (and perhaps even not), have you tried "noapic"? ---------------------------------------------------------------------- - Rick Stevens, Senior Systems Engineer rstevens vitalstream com - - VitalStream, Inc. http://www.vitalstream.com - - - - BASIC is the Computer Science version of `Scientific Creationism' - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
