Opensuse 11.2 on Compaq 610 not booting

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi Hopefully someone here can help me, I am trying to install opensuse 11.2 on my Compaq 610 laptop, I have reformatted the hd and done a clean install of 11.2, however when I boot up the first time (before configuration) it hangs, I have tried both the X64 and the i586 distributions and the only difference is that the X64 distro boots up under failsafe mode while the i586 does not. The problem seems to be at the udev part with the hang up occurring at : [ 6.002720] b43-pci-bridge 0000:10)00.0: PCI INT A -> Link[C136] - GSI 10 (level, low) -> IRQ 10 [ 6.096894] iTCO_wdt: Intel TCO Watchdog Imer Driver v1.05 [ 6.096159] iTCO_wdt: Found a ICH8M-E TCO device (Version=2, TCOBASE=0x1060) [ 6.103458] iTCO_wdt: initialized. heartbeat= 30 sec (nowayout=0) And thereafter nothing further happens. I tried the kernal option disablemodules=iTCO_wdt which got me to the next problem on the next line: [ 5.761939] b43-pci-bridge 0000:10:00.0: PCI INT A -> Link[C136] -> GSI 10 (level, low) -> IRQ 10 and it now hangs here I tried 11.1 and slackware 13 with no problems installs fine and runs fine, on the opensuse site it lists the machine as compatible with 11.2. Any ideas anyone? Many Thanks JP (Distributions)
