Well, I still can't get it to install. It's a lot closer though. Now I go through the installation menu's and add a username and password then it begins the installation and hangs on installing the ext3 file system. It gets to 5% really fast and then hangs there. Finally it goes to the login splash screen and I try to log in with the credentials I set up and get a log in failed. When I reboot it hangs on ...loading the operating system...
Something is installed just not the whole thing. Because I went to install Ubuntu 9.10 on it and it tells me that there is already an OS installed. BTW Ubuntu installs with no problem.
According to Intel this chipset is good on Linux Kernel 2.6 or higher. It's part of the reason I went with this machine
Anyway I don't see how it could be the graphics seeing that it works just fine running off the live cd. Should I put one of my Nvidia cards in it and try you think?
What I am thinking is that it doesn't like to be installed on a 2TB drive. I tried partitioning it and I tried installing on the whole drive to no avail.
