how to install linux

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have tried some linux oses such as fedora, ubuntu, linspire, and others, but everytime i tried to install it it would automatic restart my computer when in click on install so i look for help which tells me to turn off acpi which help a little bit. It lets me get to the loading installation files but then in the middle of the installation it would just stop and froze. I tried this with the linux oses that i listed above and so far every single one of them do that. so please help.

It could be your hardware maybe. If you have any other boxes try swapping parts until you figure out the problem.

First of all make sure your installing in graphical safe mode, which is an option on the install menu. Most people freeze because they try to do a regular install.

I have try all the option available like graphic mode and all, but it is still no good. I have a compaq sr1020nx. I just upgraded the ram to 2gb and i just put x-fi extrememusic, motorola wireless pci adapter, and fx 5500 from bfg and the rest is just factory.
