Thread: Install of 10.3 hangs

  1. Install of 10.3 hangs

    I am trying to install the 64-bit OpenSUSE 10.3 on a Gateway GT5628.
    Its specs are:
    Gateway GT5628 Quad Core Desktop / Intel« Core 2 Q6600 2.4GHz Quad
    Core / 3072MB RAM / 500GB 7200 SATA II HD / DVD ▒RW 18X multi dual/
    NVIDIA GeForce« 8500GT DVI VGA/NVIDIA GeForce« 8500GT/15-in-1 reader/
    Fax/Modem /

    But when I use the install DVD, it stops installing after it displays
    "loading pata_it821x_"

    How do I get past this?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Did you do the Media Check at the beginning of the install? This is
    specially relevant if you burned the DVD yourself from a downloaded iso. I
    have found on several occasions that burning a DVD too fast succeeds
    according to K3B but then fails to install. Burning slowly (x8) was the
    answer.

    I did the media check. I had to disable that driver, and then it
    worked.
