F1 should bring you to the output of the installer. A shame you cannot read it to see what is happening. Try heading over to f2 where you can open a terminal for troubleshooting. Test your network from there. Try to ps and see what is going on.


Liam -

If it helps, I can get to a terminal with the rescue mode. I did that and updated [apt-get update && apt-get autoclean && apt-get dist-upgrade && apt-get autoremove]. When I boot, the system freezes at [ 8.824009] [<c010253c>] cpu_idle+0x19/0xcb

Help and advice, please.
