Cannot Install Ghostbsd on Laptop

Postby leegold » Tue Aug 09, 2016 4:41 am

Hi,

I have 10.1, the md5sum checks OK. it's the 32bit.

Its an ASUS Aspire one 722. In the bios I set the hard disk to IDE mode.

I get to the graphic install where I have 3 choices:
for graphic install and vesa mode it does the same thing:
...
Mounting from cd9660:/dev/iso9660/GhostBSD failed with error 19
...
mountroot>

For ACPI off it does:

it starts doing

interrupt storm detected on "irq11" ; throttling interupt source

or the number might be not 11 but 7 or 10 and it keeps repeating the line above and nothing happens.


I should mention that this compact laptop does not have a DVD drive in it. So I have a USB DVD player hooked-up to it. Ubuntu installs and work OK with his setup. But thought I'd mention that.

Question:

I thought there would be a live disk options along with the install options but I don't see that?

Question:

How do I get it to accept one of the three options in the graphic install screen and start the install?

Thanks
leegold

mountroot> cd9660:/dev/cd0

and then I got the live desktop. Wireless worked after # ifconfig wlan0 up

It looks good and I will install it. Thank you for your hard work!

Yea I am not sure that USB CD/DVD drive is supported, but if you have a USD stick of 2GB or more you could use that.
