http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi all, trying to booting an Acer TM 8371 Notebook using USB flash media and the openSUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64 image. After the BIOS greeting messages nothing more happens. System seems to hang. When removing the USB memory stick the system continues on trying to boot from the hdd. When using the openSUSE-11.2-NET-x86_64 image, system detects the USB stick properly and retrieves it's ip address. Since there is no PXE system set up, installation of course stops thereafter. What's the difference between both images? I recognized that when using the openSUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64 image a partition with type linux is created on the USB stick. When using the openSUSE-11.2-NET-x86_64 image fdisk says: "Disk /dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table". So there seems to be a difference between both images. Thanks for your help.
