    Hi everyone,

    I am trying to install elastix on a GX280 P4 and when I insert the CD it seems to just hand at

    ISOLINUX 3.11 2005-09-02 Copyright (C) 1994-2005.....

    Dosent seem to give any errors.

    I tried to set the SATA hard drive to compatibility mode in the bios as well but no difference.

    I also did a MD5 check of my ISO and it checks out.

    If anyone could provide any assistance it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that one has a lot missing, sorry but the sata drivers are sorely incomplete on that puppy, what other options does the BIOS provide?

    Maybe try 2.0RC5 but it's still beta for a few more weeks.

    Yeah the Dell bios is really basic there are almost not any options at all. :(

    I see on sourceforge there is a RC5 Elastix-2.0.0-rc5-i386-bin-23Jul2010.iso do you think it would be okay to use on a test box?
