Installer Troubleshooting

There are thousands of pieces of hardware and related drivers available for use in x86-compatible world. The advantage: consumer choice. The disadvantage: hardware compatibility issues are common. There are several debug screens in the installer that can help when an installation fails. Use the Alt-Fx or Ctl-Alt-Fx where Fx is:

  • F1: main text install screen
  • F2: command line (not always available)
  • F3: general log
  • F4: driver log
  • F5: hard disk / CD log
  • F7: main install screen
