Install hang with debian-installer b4/rc1
I am trying to install debian sarge (with debian-installer) on a 1.4Ghz
Athlon with a K7S5A motherboard, AHA-2940W SCSI controller, 4GB SCSI
disk, 40GB IDE disk, network card and vga card.
I tried to use the boot cd for test candidate 1 and when it gets to
detect hardware the monitor turns off and the machine is unresponsive.
I tried beta 4 boot disks, booted, loaded network modules, downloaded
install files and on the partition screen there are no harddisks to
choose from (I want the install on the IDE disk).
I tried beta 4 boot disks, booted, loaded cdrom drivers, then it tries
to detect the network card and monitor switches off and the machine is
I though the SCSI disk could be causing problems, so I've tried booting
with linux noscsi and linux aic7xxx=no_probe,no_reset but I get the same
problems each time. As the monitor dies I can't even do Alt-F3, Alt-F4
to look at the install log. Someone suggested removing non essential
PCI cards and trying again (perhaps the SCSI controller?), but what else
can I try?
