Re: Debian install on an ia64, HP Pavilion dv6t-1000

Or the amd64 port.  It appears that this processor is x86_64: http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SLB3S

You don't have an Itanium/ia64 machine - there's no such thing as an
Itanium notebook. Try the i386 port.

I've tried every CD-based installation available, ending with
professionally produced DVD's; no joy! The BIOS/CMOS recognizes the DVD
in the drive, but absolutely refuses to boot from it.  Instead, the
screen clears, the cursor performs a newline, then, nothing; the PC
hangs.  Apparently, the BIOS is the problem.

I've asked HP for help and they've flat out refused to support the effort.

Next, I'll try network installation and Linux within Windows. But, I'd
rather a straight boot -- anybody got any suggestions?
