    I have exactly the same problem and I am stumped.

    I am using Mandriva for four years now and every single version I tried could be installed on every computer I tried, although some versions were useless with all the bugs.

    I downloaded Mandriva 2008.0 One and although it starts fine, I could find absolutely no option to install.

    So I downloaded the 2 CD version and during installation I got an error message that a file on CD 1 was faulty but in the end all three CD's installed. When I restarted same problem: Progress was as far as the first splash screen and I could not even enter verbose mode by pressing ESC.

    I downloaded the first CD form another mirror but exactly the same problem during installation and not boot.

    So I downloaded the DVD version and installation was clean, but with the first start up exactly the same problem. It only progresses tot the first splash screen and I could not even press ESC to see some messages.

    All versions downloaded were for i586.

    I am running a Intel P4 2.8 Ghz with a Gigabyte GA-8IG1000 Pro-G motherboard and a matched pair 512 Mb Memory. 80GB SATA and a 20 GB IDE hard drive with DVD and CD writers.

    Could anyone help?
