Crashing / Not Booting!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello and Good Morning,

I am in need of some suggestions as I am out of ideas. I tried to install linux on one of my machines at work and it is becoming a mess. I have never ran into this problem with linux before. I tried to install OpenSUSE 11.3 and it goes all the way through the install, but on first boot after HAL Daemon loads the pc looses video feed and then hangs. I then tried to install Ubutnu 10.10 and it crashes before it gets to the install, just gets as far as about to install. I then tried Fedora Core 14 and it will load the cd all the way up until the status bar hit Fedora 14 text and then crashes with the same loss of video and hanging.

I am running three OCZ Vertex 2 SSD's on a Adaptec 2610sa hardware raid controller with 2 gigs of ram on an AMD Athlon. I have swapped out the ram, the hard drives, dropped out the raid and just ran one SATA drive, also flashed bios on mobo. I am thinking maybe its a video card issue? But then why would it work on install screens?

Any idea would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much,
James.

Did you try Ubuntu 10.04? Debian? Arch? CentOS? Mint? *Ubuntu (derivatives)? Gentoo? Red Hat? Slackware?

I say this because you haven't ruled out the possibility that those two versions you listed have a hardware problem caused by custom patch work.

lol@mushroom, he doesn't need more distro's to fail at the same point, he needs to pass the noapic kernel parameter at boot...could be one of the others, but that always seems to be the one i pass when i have boot problems.

But why wouldn't he have to pass it on the installer CD? Usually it was the other way around for me, after I got past the CD I wouldn't have to pass noapic. And wasn't that tied to bios settings in the end, eventually to be fixed in later bios revisions?
