I decided to wipe my Opensuse system and reinstall it. I just deleted
the partitions and started over. Now during every install after CD1
shows done and all the files are copied it hangs. I did it twice with
the 32 bit version and twice with the 64 bit verson. If I go back to
install and select boot installed system, it boots hda6 no problem but:

Windows came out with a patch that PREVENTS linux from being loaded with
a dual boot with Windows. It has to be since I have never had this
problem before; on ANY system. THis is an Acer 5100 laptop with athelon
X2 64 processor. ANy Ideas?
When you think about it, what you suppose would be impossible.
Windows can not detect ext3 partitions. so it would not know if linux
Lilo can load in the MBR, which windows does not use, because it is
already past that point when windows starts to load.
Windows will complain if you try to load it after a linux install is in
place, and will be quite anti-social.
But if it is there first, it never knows.
Let me correct myself there. with MS nothing would be impossible.
I though it was impossible to release vista with so many function and
I though it was impossible that there would be a MS linux.....
Partitions should always be removed with the same program that created
As I understand it, the logic there is that MS utilities do not always
follow MS specifications.
My first guess would be the source media, so maybe it is time to re-burn
CD or DVD reader working properly?
If not the above, then it sounds like the partition table is flawed, or
the format of where you are copying to is flawed. What file system are
use using for linux? what partitions and formatting did you use?
months. I only had some trouble with 64/32 bit stuff, namely Java with
Firefox so I wiped it to start over. (had lots of crap anyway)
I just freshly downloaded Opensuse 10.3 Alpha 6, burned it and loaded
it. Guess what, it hung up on installing the boot loader (uses grub).
Something is up with track 0 on hda0 and I think Windows is it. That's
right after all the software is loaded like the other 2 cd's of 10.2.
Depending on what you have on your xp parition, you may want to try one or all of ....
1. reset to factory 'still in the box' condition of you drive c - acer boot option
2. fdisk /mbr
3. on linux rescue disk, 'restore old (windows) mbr'
2 and 3 must be done before you try 1.
