Re: HP compaq nx6325

What you may be doing is that you are trying to install a Generic x86 distribution on an AMD Turion system. The installation should not fail but still you should try a clean install with amd64 install cds. Please download amd64 specific isos and get them burnt on cds to use.

Debian GNU/Linux for the Enterprise! Ask HP ...

Hello,

it should always work with a clean x86 oder 64 Bit x64 Distribution. Regarding the ACPI Issues try this:

http://blazilla.dyndns.org/linux/nx6325.htm

I`m running SUSE 10.2 on a nx6325 withound any problems, but I use BIOS F.02. With F.04 vmware server crashed every time. Try a BIOS downgrade or try to install SUSE 10.2 with acpi=off. There is option in the BIOS with which the fans never turn off when you are connected the power supply. Be sure that this option is enabled. Otherwise the CPU will be overheat. After the installation fix the ACPI issues and then you can turn off the fan option in the BIOS again.

Regards,
Patrick
