We are (attempting to) build a Linux MCE 710 RC2 core / hybrid - Using a Gigabyte MA78GM-S2H motherboard with ASUS 8600GT 512MB NViDia Graphics card, 2 x 500GB SATA II drives, Blu Ray Reader & 2GB 1066 RAM with AMD Phenom Qaud Core CPU. When trying to intsall MCE 0710 RC2 32 or 64 bit it seeks out the floppy drive and there it remains - installation stops there - has anyone had this issue with this motherboard or any other? Can anyone recommend a motherboard with 8 channel sound codecs / AMD Phenom Qud compliant that works straight up? I am not even certain it is the motherboard - could be an Ubuntu kernel issue perhaps (
?) I was told ASUS is the way to go but I am installing this into a FUSION case which requires mATX - not fussed about the case and will happily switch to any motherboard - full ATX that works.
HELP Needed. I am a newbie but want to learn.
