Hi all and nice to meet you.
It's the 1st time I'm here, just got surprised of how many great things you have created! Just awesome!
I'm mostly a Windows user, and having very few experience of Linux, I've decided to install to put away the Windows OS and start learning this one.
By the way, I'm into computers since the ZX Spectrum days (was playing mostly games then but after and Amstrad 6128 and various Commodore Amigas,
I became a much more advanced user)
Right now I'm having this issue. I am trying to install Black Opal 64 on a Windows 8 machine (on a 300Gb hard disk, I have a blank partition of 144Gb for Black Opal). The DVD starts reading for 3-4 seconds, just after BIOS post, and stops there while a cursor is blinking just below the 2nd screen line.
The keyboard is working normally (tried pressing the caps lock button) but it will stuck there without doing anything for ever.Disconnecting the hard disk won't start the DVD. Maybe a BIOS setting needs to be changed?
The PC configuration is the following:
Motherboard: ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe
CPU: AMD Phenom 64 9950 2.6GHz
RAM: Kingston 6400D2 DDR2 (4Gb at 667MHz)
GPU: EVGA GTX-260
Hard disk: Maxtor 300Gb Sata2
OS installed: Windows 8 x64 Pro
