Installation issues / Can't start the AV Wizard!
« on: September 09, 2007, 02:19:34 am »
I've installed Linux MCE through the CD method.
It boots and Prompts for a username and password. I get about 5 seconds into typing it and i get some beeps and the screen goes blank.
I've tried pushing 1-9 to change video type and res. But all it does is show the screen for 5 seconds, beeps, and goes blank again.
If i tap ESC a couple of times it boots into the MCE LM and from there its fine, but its in 640x480.

How can i start the AV Wizard if i can't get it to run in the first place?
Also how can i reset the password to nothing so it never asks?


Installation issues / 0704 Quick Install DVD doesn't work!
« on: September 04, 2007, 07:13:36 am »

I have a HTPC thats been running in VISTA for quite some time now and i've recently wiped it for Linux MCE. Though it won't install!
I've burned the Linux MCE Quick Install DVD to DVD and slapped it in the drive. It boots into the Kubuntu bootloader and i choose the first option- to install.
It does a few things, it asks which HDD to install to (I have 2 identical 320GB HDDs on SATA), i choose the first one (1), though i have tried both now.
It gets to installing the SWAP space on one of the HDDs and just stalls. It doesn't actually freeze because i can CTRL+ALT+DEL it at any time, but there doesn't seem to be any activity. (And yeah, i have waited for atleast an hour twice)
A pic of the stall point:

Any help guys?
