I can not install Sebayon 7 on my new pc !!

Post by NyBac » Tue Nov 22, 2011 21:55

Hi,
I've jut bought a new laptop today : an Asus X54L model with a Pentium Dual-Core (2*2.1GHz), 2 Go of RAM, Intel GMA4500 Graphics, 320 GO O-free HDD. I ran a live-DVD of Sebayon 7 KDE with no trouble, but when I click on the "Install" icon on the desktop, I got the waiting cursor bouncing indefinitely and nothing happen. I tried with a Sebayon 7 GNOME DVD, the problem persists.
Is my new laptop a kind of damned ? :(
Could someone help me please ?

uhhh, cant remember hardware specs, sounds similiar .... guy had to get up and walk away from pc and ignore it for a bit, when he came back installer was loaded. then for partitioning was same issue, he went to the store and bought adult beverages and when he got back, was ready.
Is the first time I heard of it, and the install did go fine, you may be the second time seeing it?
Just saying this does not sound normal assuming you did check the md5 and the newly burned disk, but try it.

You tried to start once, and click again to start second time?

nope, just click once to start ... I suggest to walk away because it takes incredible amount to start .... as a user I would click it 10 times. :roll:
I have no clue if this will help, just asking to click once and let it run for 10 min.

I am saying that this did help another user on irc, I never had the issue.

Yep, and nothing came out.
