Re: Failure within netinst: ide-disk and ide-generic are hanging each other

Thanks for your fast answer.

The board is ASUS K8N4-E.

Without ide-generic the installer is not able to use CD`s it was booted from. If I don`t load ide-disk, the continuation menu of installer appears, but disks can`t be accessed.

There is amd74xx module and it is loaded.

Hmm.  I would have expected an nforce4 board to work rather easily.
Which board is it?  You also probably shouldn't need ide-generic at all,
but rather amd74xx (at least my nforce2 uses that ide driver).
