...but only when there's not a dvd-rom drive plugged into the IDE cable? I completed the install with no problems what-so-ever and it booted up the first time perfectly, however when I went to remove the dvd-rom drive from the computer, as I only needed it for install, it no longer booted past the 64studio screen and I beleive it says its looking for root something-or-other. As soon as I plug it back in, the problem stops. I plan to update the BIOS here soon, I just wanted to see if it would work without the update. The system is: Asus M2A-VM HDMI Athlon 64 4400+ 2.3GHz OCZ Reaper HPC (2x2Gb) Casegears ECO-Element 650W 64 Studio 2.1 64bit Very strange. Thanks, -Troy

Hi I'm a linux noob. I first installed XP Pro, then Ultimate Ubuntu 1.9 AMD64 ver (hardy heron based) and tried to install 64 Studio. At first it booted the install disc (64 S 2.1 AMD64 vrsion) on a Pioneer DVR 215 and after the keyboard setup it said CD not recognised (or smt like that) and the install failed. Then i checked these forums and tried the "switch to RAID" in BIOS (it was set to IDE). It didn't work, but when I tried the AHCI mode it installed perfectly. However, since my XP was installed in IDE mode it couldn't boot in AHCI so i set it back to IDE but then the 64 studio screen just appears and the install doesn't continue (on F2 says "waiting for ....") Then I reinstalled the 64 studio, but when i t asked to reboot I went to BIOS and switched back to IDE... AND I T WORKS NOW :) Hope this helped

And I've messed around with the MA/SL/CS jumpers with no luck.
