Hi, all
I want to reinstall my hp machine with 11iv2, but everytime I boot from DVD till to select install or recover system, it always auto select the system reboot option.

I believe you are selecting "Cancel and Reboot"

I swear I have not press any key, so I believe I didn't select the Reboot option by a mistake.

There is something strange that it can't display all the install message. But I don't known why.

I have try it more than 10 times. I almost get crazy now. T_T

Re: auto reboot while install 11iv2

Problem is solved finally by using the MP LAN port to reinstall.
