Can't install kkde live media 4.11 [Solved]

Post by 2handband » Thu Nov 27, 2014 4:40

When I load my live media it takes me to the menu screen. No matter which option I choose it starts loading, aborts, gives me an error message that goes by to fast to read entirely (somethIng about ecc being disabled in bios) and then drops me into a terminal login. I don't know what ecc is or even if it's relevant, but there is no such option in my bios. I have tried two DVDs and a flash stick, all with identical results. Can anyone advise?

Fixed it; when it dropped me int the command line I did xdriver=vesa followed by systemctl restart kdm. Kinda surprised that I had to; I have never before had trouble with a Linux distro install on this box.
