Re: Setup hangs copying files

Yes. Actually to do minimal messing inside the computer I unplugged the IDE interface from the CDROM and connected another CDROM with another IDE cable to the free secondary IDE socket. This CDROM is set to master. The BIOS summary at boot shows how it is detecting devices: Primary master: LBA,Mode ...

Re: Setup hangs copying files

The CDROM was connected as primary slave and the hard disk as primary master. I have connected the CDROM as secondary master and it keeps getting stuck at the copy. Sometimes instead of the error message it displays the progress bar and the first file to copy (acpi.sys) and sits there. By the way th...

Re: Successful install on Dell optiplex GX270

Tried Opera 9.64 but there is a problem with the install. It downloads and extracts, then asks for a language and presents a progress bar "Preparing the installer". After this is done I briefly see a reddish picture with some text in it but it goes away almost immediately and I am left with an unres...

Re: Setup hangs copying files

Thanks, I was suspecting that. It would be safer to stick with PIO mode during install, I wonder why DMA is used at all. If I remember correctly (I may be wrong of course) PIO is faster for a dedicated task such as the install. The only advantage of DMA is when multitasking is used, where the CPU is...

Thanks for all the replies. I downloaded the latest Trunk build. It still gets stuck at the start of file copy, with this new version an error message pops just before it hangs: Setup could not create install directories. ENTER=Reboot computer. But ENTER does not reboot the computer, seems hung. I a...

Re: Successful install on Dell optiplex GX270

Ok, thanks for the tip. I have downloaded the latest Trunk build and installed it. - In the first boot it stalled with a BSOD. Upon reboot in debug mode and with null-modem cable attached it started fine, thus the cause of that BSOD remains unknown. Further attempts in normal mode were successful an...

Successful install on Dell optiplex GX270

Had to battle somewhat to get to the desktop. It is a desktop PC Pentium IV 2.8 GHz, 1.5 Gb DDR, HDD 40 Gb with integrated Intel 865G graphics. Installed the current stable release from a CD-RW. I found previous messages stating the problems with Intel graphics but none suggesting a working solution...

It boots fine from CD, creates and formats the partition and then hangs when it shoud be copying f...
