HP Mini 110 hangs on boot

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi all I've read a few threads where people are seeing the same issue as me, but have yet to find a good solution. Here's my problem: New HP Mini 110. Atom N270. 2Gb RAM. 160Gb HDD I've installed OpenSUSE 11.2 Gnome Live from a USB stick. The installation worked well, but after the first reboot, the graphical loader just hangs with the progress bar having moved only a couple of pixels. Only way to recover is to power-off - CTRL+ALT+DEL does nothing. When I press 'Esc' on boot, to display the boot messages, I see the boot hangs at the following point: "Loading drivers, configuring devices:" trying again, this time adding the boot option "acpi=off" as recommended in another thread, gets me a little further, but the boot now fails at the following point: "Set System Time to the current Hardware Clock" Finally, booting in Failsafe mode gets all the way to a text mode login, but this is hardly a long-term work-around. So, I'm stuck. Has anyone got openSUSE 11.2 working on an HP Mini 110, or at least seen and solved this problem on another system? I can confirm openSUSE 11.2 works fine on my old Acer Aspire One A150, so I assume this is a specific issue on the HP. Thanks. (Distributions)
