[ILUG-BOM] Asrock MB refuses Mandrake.
Tue Jun 14 22:24:00 IST 2005
Mandrake 10.1 does not install on the Asrock 845 chipset P 4i45 GV mobo.
On booting from the first CD, it gave the initial 2 boot options of
direct install/upgrade or custom. Then the first loading of the kernel
starts and then there is a screen with a blue title bar and a task bar
saying "Welcome to Mandrake...." Thats it. The system does not move
further. Even Ctrl+Alt+Del does not reboot the system.
To cross check linux compatibility with this mobo, live Knoppix 3.2 was
tried and it booted fine and gave me the desktop and even played mp3s
from the hdd. In case this may be of any help, the first line in the
knoppix boot up text messages was "PCI Device 00:f1.1 not available due
to conflicts". Any clues?
