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
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).
