    Last week I bought a new PC. Hear is my configuration:

    Processor: Intel Pentium4 3GHz
    Motherboard: Intel 915GAV
    RAM: 256*2 MB DDR
    DVDROM: Liteon 16x (PATA)
    CDRW: Liteon (PATA)
    HDD: Maxtor 80 GB (SATA)

    I wanted to install Mandrake Linux PowerPack Edition
    9. From my motherboard, I set the first boot from DVD.
    Then I inserted 1st disk of that linux. Than a window
    came, and said to press enter to install. After
    pressing Enter, detected my hardware and said no CDROM
    drive. Then I collect a CD rom drive from my friend,
    but the result didnít change.
    But I installed this CD to my old one and other PCs.
    Please, someone help me to install this.

    Go into the mode where you can pass command options to the installer (Advanced setup). Try typing:

    alt1

    If that doesn't work, try typing

    alt1 noapic nolapic

    One of these should (I believe) correct the issue.
