Report on the Installation of SuSE Linux 10.0, Windows 98, and Windows XP
on a PC with Mainboard ASRock K7S41GX


The installation of SuSE Linux 10.0 must be done with the Option "Installation - ACPI Disabled". Then everything runs well and without problems. Otherwise there are problems with "mouse and keyboard dead" or system hangs.

Windows 98 and Windows XP can only be installed when during the installation the USB function of the mainboard is disabled in the system BIOS. Otherwise there are problems with "Black Screen" and system hangs.

OS/2 Warp 4 with the addition of the free updates in the internet could not be installed, it cannot cope with the hard disk. The installation was tried from USB diskette. However, OS/2 was the only operating system (out of the tried ones) that ran without problems until the installation was discontinued, and that gave a correct error message why it could not be installed.

For more details please refer to the version in German language.
