    Cant install Mandriva


    First im a total newbie at linux so excuse me if i say something stupid
    Ok so i tried once installing kubuntu but didnt succeed because the bootloader couldnt be installed on the hard disk drive.So i downloaded the Mandriva iso image (which i burned on a cd as i did for kubuntu) hoping that the kubuntu failed installing was just a flaw of the disc but.... theres still a problem installing the Mandriva LE2005 it says something like: No devices could be found to install new systemfiles to. So could some1 please help???? I really would apreciate! THX!

    see what happens if you boot using the command:

    Code:
    linux acpi=off
    Let us know whether or not it works.
