I know this has been discussed a several times but apparently no one yet had a problem when the installation (from DVD) got all frozen up at the “Chip” (Loading CPU specific module). I was willing to set up Haiku on an old Acer laptop - Acer Aspire 3000. The CPU is (from BIOS) “Mobile AMD Semprom™ Processor 3000+” and its speed is 1800 MHz. I dont have any OS installed, HDD ir formatted. I did format the HDD with GParted Live which is meant for Linux architecture, I suppose. Might this bring any problems? Formatted HDD as ntfs.
Earlier I tried to instal Haiku with bootable flash drive but then I realized that the old laptop of mine doesnt support booting from USB port. So I burned a DVD with the *.iso … Any suggestions. Preferably in an easy language so I can understand, not that much of a pro in these things, just learning.
Thanks in advance!
