Recommended Posts

do what? install the bootloader or starting the installation system?

Installing the GRUB bootloader should be easy with the WINGRUB interface. How you start the installation after that, depends on the distribution.

ok, I have another idea, can you help me get a hold of the ubuntu driver for ite8212 raid controller? That is the controller, and Im trying to install kubuntu.

Try OpenSuSe 10.2, they have quite a lot controller drivers and you can provide yours with F5 at DVD boot.

PS:@all, avoid grub under windows/dos, they tend to be rarely updated/outdated and this sometimes suck your partitions.

Ah, ACPI problem!

You could have said it earlier. :P

Try to boot with the noacpi switch. :)

See your bootable CD/DVD help, there are always a few lines on how to disable ACPI. ;)

On my laptop, I can have parts of acpi enabled, as long as I have acpi=noirq. :)
