Hello everyone,
I am having a strange problem. I am trying to install 64 bit on a separate hard drive for a dual boot with 64bit win 7.

The live cd worked so I went to install and after the language choice and the screen to install check disc etc the install hangs at a command prompt.

I read to try the nomode option however I can not get the f key selections to work. I can move choices but no f keys.

I am working with a custom computer a gigabyte m57sli board, phenom 2 x4 925 cpu, 4gb ram, several hard drive nvidia ti 550 video card.

I have downloaded and tried several different installs and media dvd-r dvd+r usb stick etc and all stop at the same point with the same problem.
