Default Re: Sticky "Installing NFORCE Drivers".

Netlama, Mandriva 2007 is a fairly recent distro, true, the Kernel is 2.6.17, but I didn't realize that that wasn't a good Kernel. This distro was just released within the past 2? months. As for Not loading what happens when I put the DVD in and reboot to start the loading all it does is it has a small screen that says "loading Linux" then the screen goes black and the DVD shuts down. I had tried to load it several times with the same results. I have left it go like that for a couple minutes and still nothing. There is nothing wrong with the DVD as I have put Mandriva 2007 on 2 other hard drives using my Gigabyte 7VM400M-RZ motherboard as well as a 5 year old Hewlett Packard computer. This is the PowerPack version not the cheap download distro. Also, just for the heck of it, I tried to load my older MDV 2006 Powerpack with Kernel 2.6.12-12MDK and although it loaded up OK, when I rebooted the computer it froze about halfway through the boot.

Just for the record this Mandriva distro is for the X64 AMD boards as well as the 32 bit.
