View Full Version : [SOLVED] Fix for 9.10 install cd hanging

October 31st, 2009, 03:32 AM
I was able to resolve the issue of the install cd hanging at boot on my Dell Optiplex 360 with nvidia 9300. I always typically have to boot the installers in safe graphics mode on this hardware, which I did have to do in this case. But for 9.10 I also had to disconnect one of the monitors connected to my video card.

So, if you're having trouble getting past the black and white throbber graphic, try safe graphics mode with one monitor only.

when you start up from the cd, at the bottom of the screen it should say something like "F4 - modes" (I think), so press F4 and select safe graphics mode, then try it and see if it works.
