Happily I got home after buying Linux FORMAT with the latest software of Mandriva.
Booting the computer (with the DVD) and the installation process starts. Pressing “Enter” to install and the monitor fades out from white to black. Nothing happens. Restarts the installation and the same happen again then pressing “Enter”.
Next time I press “F1”, and then “F3” the system starts. The installation let mi choose country and starts to install drivers. Then the driver for VIA VT6420 SATA Raid starts to load the system stops and nothing happens. Only the mouse pointer is moving.
What can I do to install Mandrivas latest version? I have tried to find other sources for this latest version. None of them manages to pas the VT6420 SATA Raid controller. I have only found a version which is only a stripped of version without any programs or tools for installation of other software.
My system consists of a MSI K8T Neo with AMD 64 processor, ATI Radeon 9700, 2 IBM 60Gb IDE HD and 4 Maxtor 250Gb SATA HD configured in Raid 0 and 1.
