Installation issues / ASUS M3N78-EM
« on: December 13, 2008, 07:45:45 pm »
I have bought a new computer for the purposes of using LinuxMCE. So dont tell me to switch over to Windows MCE bleh. :)

MB: Asus M3N78-EM AM2 GF8300 MATX

I started out by using the AMD64 rc2 DVD for installation. The screen went black after hitting "Start installation" - Lost video signal.
So I read some about geforce 8300 not being able to start installation cause the screen goes black. But they had success in installing with i386 rc2 DVD.
So I started to download the DVD i386 rc2. Installation did start this time.
New problems:
BIOS default settings SATA Mode select: SATA mode <- These settings doesn't work cause the installer couldn't find any hard drive.

Installation said:
Error: No hard drive found (Found this)

So I thought I go look in bios and change some settings. I changed from SATA mode to AHCI mode. This DID work. I managed to select hard drive for installing to and the hard drive started to format. The installation went on and started to "Copy DVD to Hard drive." After a while the screen went black (It didn't lost video signal) with a writing cursor blinking. After 10-15 minutes I forced the computer to reboot by pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL.

Grub couldn't load my installation.
Error 18

So I went back to BIOS to change from AHCI Mode to SATA Mode. Grub managed to boot from these settings. However the screen lost video signal when everything was booted and stuff. I'm lost now... Any advice greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,
Niklas Jumlin
