Install hangs at install of sil3112
I have been trying to install mdk10.1 community and have gotten further than with other distros but it hangs. The hang comes after it's run through all the prelimary info then goes to gui. At the initial prompt it will say it's loading the drivers for my sil 3112 sata raid driver but stops right there. I reboot & try using 'linux noapic' at the F1 option. It will not hang after that but it doesn't recognize the raid after that. It will show both sda & sdb but will show an error and say that it's going to use them seperately.
Of course I've been going through this for a while & the search function is down so this might have been covered but google didn't reveal anything so any help would be well appreciated.
AMD 3k, Gigabyte 7n400 pro2, 2 wd raptor 10k 36 gig sata drives run in raid 0. winxp occupies the same drives and runs fine.
WEhat happens when the installation is done?
Hi, as you mentioned to do linux noprobe install, what happens after the process? Does the Mandrake boot up properly?
