http://forums.opensuse.org – For information of others that will buy the same PC. I installed last night 11.2 on an ez1600 eMachine. The opensuse 11.2 live CD reboot at the 90% of the of the load kernel phase and the installation DVD reboot at the same stage. I was very depressed, I purchased this nice all-in-one PC for my kids and I don't want to be forced to use windows as it appeared. In the internet there was no indication at all. As a last random attempt I changed in the phoenics bios the value of the SATA PORT 2 Type parameter to CD-ROM. It initialy reports the type of the installed DVD. After that the installation went smoothly and now all the hardware works fine. I haven't still test the burning of DVD. (Distributions)
