    Question Motherboard


    Hello

    I bought a motherboard Asrock 775 I65G last month. Since then i've been trying to install linux, but i can't, doesn't let me finish the instalation.

    I try out with Knoppix 3.8, Ubuntu Horay, Ubuntu 6.0 (Beta), Ubuntu (Final), Suse 10.1, LFS and Knoppix 5.

    I don't know why but it always give me the same error. Frist of all i have to try the instalation so many times because when i'm trying to run a live LIVECD it freez on some point of the installation.

    All the instalations stay "Loading hardware drivers".

    I check out everything on the bios, it's up to date.

    I think that must be the motherboard ><.

    What do you guys think?, Does this happened to someone before?

    Thanks

    it might be motherboard problem coz many Linux installers' kernels don't yet support many chipsets. check this link.

    Hello

    Thanks for the information. So, the problem is the chipset isn't supported. Asrock 775I65G chipset is Intel® 865G. If i buy an intel motherboard probably i'll get the same problem right?

    What motherboard should i buy then? I can't stay using Windows XD until my chipset get supported.

    Thanks
