    on the first screen after I press enter I get this:
    [​IMG]
    I have just downloaded the latest iso (1.5.2)
    I have tried for 32 and 64 bit, same results
    I have tried to set the IDE to legacy in the BIOS
    it is a SATA CD/DVD

    any idea?
    I am going to look for an IDE drive.

    It's possible that there's problem with the SATA DVD!
    Try with another device IDE.

    hmmm... I understand you! :)

    Your problem isn't cool. :angry:

    So, for resume:
    You have, now, a IDE DVD on primary IDE master?
    One HDD SATA on your motherboard.
    You can't boot from your DVD.
    The bios don't detect the O.S?

    You can have a problem with the compatibility between Elastix (boot), and your Sata controler, or other device from the motherboard.?!

    If you have an old HDD IDE, try with this.

    yes, you must modify the grub menu.

    From original file you must have this:
    more /boot/grub/grub.conf
    Code:
    # grub.conf generated by anaconda
    #
    # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
    # NOTICE:  You have a /boot partition.  This means that
    #          all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
    #          root (hd0,0)
    #          kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
    #          initrd /initrd-version.img
    #boot=/dev/sda
    default=1
    timeout=5
    splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    #hiddenmenu
    title Elastix (2.6.18-92.1.22.el5xen)
            root (hd0,0)
            kernel /xen.gz-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5
            module /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5xen ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
            module /initrd-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5xen.img
    title Elastix-base (2.6.18-92.1.22.el5)
            root (hd0,0)
            kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
            initrd /initrd-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5.img
    you must modify :
    Code:
    title Elastix-base (2.6.18-92.1.22.el5)
            root (hd0,0)
            kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
            initrd /initrd-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5.img
    by

    Code:
    title Elastix-base (2.6.18-92.1.22.el5)
            root (hd0,0)
            kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5 acpi=off ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
            initrd /initrd-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5.img

    thanks, you can't edit any file because the kernal did not loaded.
    but, it was solved if you do not choose to view/edit the instalation parameters.
    it add it automaticly to the kernal instalation.

    thank you.

    Yes you can edit this file.
    In this case, you must boot for example whit a live CD as Ubuntu or other linux live CD. Mount your hard disk, and modify your file.

    Ok, so now your Elastix install is done and work fine?
