    can't install linux... any distribution... PLZ HELP


    hi I have a problem,

    i reserved for linux os 10 gb space, 1 gb swap, and remainder to ext3

    i tryed to install a ubuntu 7.10, it installed successfully, i entered with my account, and simply restared even, if I do nothing, it stops on the loading screen and does nothing... isn't loading...

    ok that's ubuntu, i tried also fedora 8 - it says that i have no devices, no cdrom, no hdd, no partitions...

    tried also and mandriva 2007, same problem, "NO CDROM device"

    my computer has the characteristics:

    Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.40, 1gb RAM
    HDD are SATA

    maybe the problem is that i use SATA? or something else, ...

    I tried the same to install on a AMD Athlon 2000, the same like here, (with 10 GB...), and it worked, i, don't know what's the problem on my computer... i hope that you'll give me an answer...

    Thumbs up

    The SATA drives may be part of the issue, but only if you tried to install a kernel that loads IDE drives. You may want to try the install again on your PC, but make sure to pay close attention to the kernel that is loading. Wit that done, you should have no problems finishing your installl with the distro of your choice.

    I had trouble with usb on my system it would not boot up, it would freeze while booting up. I had my usb mouse installed on a add on card that use usb one and had to move it to usb on my motherboard and everything was fine.

    If you have any new usb devices unplugging them.

    Try Suse 10.3 it rocks.

    You can't decide which distro is best for others. All depends on Hardware compatibility, likes/dislikes and a lot of other factors.
    Best way is, try as many as you can and decide yourself.

    I agree. It's all about which one you feel most at home with. And While I'm not a huge fan of Debian my self, It does have top-notch hardware recognition. Very few problems in that regard.

    Debian rocks! I used SuSE for a while and was impressed by its prettiness - but Debian is much faster, easier and more reliable.
