I've got the ASUS M3N78-EM board.. I'm unable to get it to work..
Here's the steps I did:
Downloaded DVD AMD64 rc2.
Screen connected with VGA and also DVI. I tried both.
The graphics card is integrated gefore 8300.
The screen lost video signal right after I hit "Install LinuxMCE" from the DVD.
I went to my favorite pc store and bought a new graphics card - a GeForce 9 series.
Nothing changed.. I had the same problems with the screen loosing video signal.
I downloaded DVD i386 rc2. The installation started and the screen didn't loose video signal.
However the installation couldn't find any hard drive. I doubled checked bios to see that the hard drive was connected - and it was.
I changed from SATA mode to AHCI mode and the installation was now able to find the hard drive and started to install everything to it.
After it completed formating and copying contents from DVD to hard drive the screen went blank, black background and a cursor blinking.
So I waited for about 10-15 minutes before I decided to press CTRL+ALT+DEL. Next time I would boot up the computer grub couldn't load.
I received: Error 18
Which I read about here: Error 18: Selected cylinder exceeds maximum supported by BIOS
So I went into BIOS and disabled LBA for the DVD-ROM... because I didn't have any options anywhere to change the LBA settings for the hard drive.
Next boot did work except that the screen went black and computer hung up after (I believe) it had completed booting.
I couldn't activate caps lock, num luck or scroll lock and it didn't respond to ctrl+alt+del.
This is were I'm shouting out desperately for help.
